Release 20.3 - May 2020

What's new?
Thailand's Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA)
Thailand's Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) is the new privacy law that harmonizes and modernizes data protection requirements for Thailand. This regulation applies to Adobe Campaign customers who hold data for Data Subjects residing in this country.
In addition to the privacy capabilities already available in Adobe Campaign (including consent management, data retention settings, and user roles), we are taking this opportunity to include additional capabilities, to help facilitate your readiness for PDPA:
  • Right to Access and Right to Delete: we are leveraging the capabilities that were added for GDPR and CCPA. Learn more
  • When creating a Privacy request, the PDPA regulation type has been added in the Privacy Core Service. This method is the one you should use for all access and delete requests. The use of the Campaign API and interface for access and delete requests is deprecated. See the Deprecated and Removed Features article .
Refer to the how-to video .
External API Activity (GA)
The External API activity is transitioning from beta to GA. This release brings additional flexibility to the JSON response body parser. You can now:
  • parse a nested JSON with a maximum depth of 10 levels.
  • parse selected properties as leaf nodes from a JSON and flatten them into a single table row.
  • select and use an array object from a JSON without having to name the object "data" or have it be at the top level.
Caution: Customers will need to replace all beta External API activities with GA External API activities in their workflows. Workflows that use the beta version of External API will stop working in 20.3.
For more information, refer to the detailed documentation and the how-to video .
Additional capabilities (starting July 13)
