Add Adobe Analytics tool

Deploy Adobe Analytics using Dynamic Tag Management by creating the Adobe Analytics tool and configuring the page code either automatically or manually. The automatic method is recommended for most users.
For improved visitor tracking, we strongly recommend that you enable Identity Service .

Add an Adobe Analytics Tool

  1. Click *`Web Property Name`* > Overview > Add a Tool > Adobe Analytics .
  2. Fill in the fields:
Element Description
Tool Type
The type of tool, such as Adobe Analytics .
Tool Name
A descriptive name for this tool. This name displays on the Overview tab under Installed Tools .
Configuration Method
Automatic (Recommended): Use dynamic tag management to manage the configuration. This method enables automatic synchronization of Adobe Analytics report suites via a Experience Cloud login or Web Services ID, and manages the [!DNL AppMeasurement] code.
After the accounts are connected, Dynamic Tag Management pulls the Adobe Analytics report suite IDs and names into the tool configuration interface, allowing for increased speed in tool deployment with less possibility for user errors.
Note: You must choose the Automatic option if you are an Adobe Analytics Premium customer. See Enabling Adobe Analytics Premium below.
Fill in the fields specific to automatic configuration:
  • Experience Cloud : (Default) Uses Experience Cloud single sign-on. Specify your Experience Cloud ID and password.
  • Web Services : Specify your Web Services username and shared secret.
    Shared secret credentials are located in Admin Tools > Company Settings > Web Services .
    Developers, see Get Web Service Access to the Enterprise API for help with obtaining Web Services credentials.
Manual : Manually manage the [!DNL AppMeasurement] code. You can download the Analytics AppMeasurement code from Admin Tools > Code Manager .
Click JavaScript (new) for information about downloading the code locally to copy and paste in the Edit Code field in Library Management .
Fill in the fields specific to a manual configuration:
  • Production Account ID: (Required) Your production account for data collection. For Analytics, this is your report suite ID. Dynamic Tag Management automatically installs the correct account in the production and staging environment.
  • Staging Account ID: (Required) Used in your development or test environment. For Analytics, this is your report suite ID. A staging account keeps your testing data separate from production.
  • Tracking Server: Specify the information for your tracking server.
    The Tracking Server and SSL Tracking Server variables are used for first-party cookie implementation to specify the domain at which the image request and cookie is written. For more information, see the Correctly Populate the trackingServer and trackingServerSecure Variable article.
  • SSL Tracking Server: Specify the information for your SSL tracking server.
