Story

After defining what the answer to the questions Who is this customer? and What does this customer do? should look like, you now need to create a bucket that uses that information, to receive and validate data that was sent to Adobe Experience Platform.

2.3.1 - Create Datasets

You now need to create 2 datasets:
  • 1 dataset to capture the information that answers the Who is this customer? - question.
  • 1 dataset to capture the information that answers the What does this customer do? - question.
Log in to Adobe Experience Platform by going to this URL: https://experience.adobe.com/platform After logging in, you'll land on the homepage of Adobe Experience Platform.
Before you continue, you need to select a sandbox . The sandbox to select is named Module 2 - Data Ingestion . You can do this by clicking the text Production Prod in the blue line on top of your screen.
