Analysis Workspace – Cohort Analysis enhancements
New Cohort Analysis settings have been added:
In the left rail, users now have the option to Show items from last 18 months . Previously, the lookback period was a maximum of 6 months. This makes it easier to compare to pages or campaigns from last year, up to 18 months ago.
New Analysis Workspace template
We added a new template called "Magento: Marketing & Commerce" to Analysis Workspace. It is designed specifically for Magento e-commerce customers, but any retailer can use it to get unique insights into their commerce activities.
Analysis Workspace fixes
- Fixed an issue that caused multi-byte characters to be shown upside down when breaking down dimensions. (AN-180112)
- Fixed an issue with visualization errors – we now show a red error bar when a visualization error occurs.(AN-175542)
- Fixed an issue where dimension names appeared as English in localized environments.(AN-178695)
- Fixed an issue that caused the line graph in a real-time drill-down report to be blank. (AN-181690)

Important notices for Analytics administrators
Date Added or Updated
Classification rule builder limits
Added June 5, 2019
These limits are not new, but have been added to the documentation here .
New segment operator limits
Added May 31, 2019
Starting on July 18, 2019, the segment operators "contains any of", "does not contain any of", "contains all of" and "does not contain all of" will be limited to 100 words per input field. The limit will be applied to all new and modified segments after this date. Existing segments that exceed the limit will continue to be supported, but cannot be modified or saved until the input field is reduced. These limits are being applied as part of a continued effort to improve query performance.
Upcoming support changes for Date-Enabled and Numeric 2 Classifications
Updated May 28, 2019
The ability to import Numeric 2 and Date-Enabled classifications has been removed from the codebase. This change will take effect with the July 2019 Maintenance Release. If you have Numeric or Date-Enabled columns in your import file, those cells will be silently ignored, and any other data within that file will be imported as normal.
Existing classifications can still be exported through the standard classification workflow, and will continue to be available in reporting.
Change to Report Total calculations
Updated July 9, 2019
On June 18, 2019 , Adobe Analytics made Report Total calculations consistent across all dimensions and metrics. This will result in a change to the totals for some reports (typically, Prop or Customer Attributes reports). Prior to this change, some Report Totals inconsistently included or excluded the Unspecified line item in the total, regardless of whether Unspecified appeared in the report.
As of June 18, 2019, Unspecified will always appear in the report total, even if it does not appear as a line item in the report. Additionally, segments using exists or does not exist logic may see different results for some dimensions after this change, specifically dimensions where Unspecified has a special name such as the "Typed/Bookmarked" line item for Referrer Type dimension or the "Other" line item for the Device Type dimension. This change will affect Analysis Workspace, Reports & Analytics, Ad Hoc Analysis, Report Builder, and the Reporting API.
Note : This Report Total calculation is now called Grand Total . See "Analysis Workspace: Update to Freeform table totals" in the October 2019 release notes .
Update to CSV downloads from Analysis Workspace
April 10, 2019
Starting on April 11, 2019, several changes were made to CSV downloads (and #) from Analysis Workspace to remove formatting from exported data.
Upcoming change to the Analysis Workspace Debugger command
April 4, 2019
The Console command to turn on the Analysis Workspace Debugger is changing to adobeTools.debug.includeOberonXml on June 13, 2019 . adobe.tools.debug.includeOberonXml will cease to function after that date.
Mobile browser version numbers
February 7, 2019
Starting January 8, 2019, we changed the truncation level for mobile browser version numbers from 2 to 1. From that date forward, versions only display the first two levels (e.g. Firefox 64.0.2 is now reported as Firefox 64.0 ).
End of life for Ad Hoc Analysis
January 29, 2019
On August 6, 2018, Adobe announced the intention to end-of-life Ad Hoc Analysis. An end-of-life date will be shared once available.
For more information, including which versions of Java will be compatible during this period, visit Discover Workspace .
Short Analytics report links
January 14, 2019
Any short Analytics report links that have not been visited within one year will be cleaned up and deleted starting on Thursday, January 17, 2019, on a rolling schedule.
End of Support for TLS 1.0
Updated January 10, 2019
As of February 11, 2019 Adobe Analytics reporting no longer supports TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.0 encryption. This change is part of our ongoing efforts to maintain the highest security standards and promote the safety of customer data. If you are unable to connect to Adobe Analytics reporting after February 11, 2019, you should upgrade your browser to the latest version .
As of February 20, 2019 Adobe Analytics data collection no longer supports TLS 1.0. With this change, Adobe no longer collects Analytics data from end users with older devices or web browsers that do not support TLS 1.1 or later. We do not expect this to have a significant impact on customer data or reporting. (If your website already does not support TLS 1.0, you will not be affected.)
Beginning April 11, 2019, the Adobe Analytics Reporting API no longer supports TLS 1.0 encryption. Customers who access the API should verify that they will not be impacted.
Data Feed: post_product_list column - size change
January 9, 2019
On February 7, 2019, Adobe expanded the size of the post_product_list column from 64 KB to 16 MB. This change ensures that merchandising eVar values added to post_product_list during processing do not cause truncation of product and revenue values. If you have processes that ingest post_product_list values, please ensure those processes can handle values up to 16 MB in length, or will truncate the value at 16 KB to avoid data ingestion failures.
Management changes affecting inactive Analytics Live Stream endpoints
December 20, 2018
Starting on February 1, 2019, Live Stream endpoints with no active consumer connections for 90 days may be disabled. You can reach out to Customer Care to inquire about your Live Stream endpoints and, if necessary, have them re-enabled. In addition, please ensure your consumer processes maintain a persistent connection, as intended by the design of the service, and that they are implemented to reconnect when the connection is disconnected or interrupted.
Update Adobe Report Builder due to end of support for TLS 1.0
Sept. 7, 2018
Due to the end of support for TLS 1.0, we recommended that Report Builder users download version v5.6.21 prior to February 2019. After that date, prior versions of Report Builder will no longer function.
Released July 15, 2019:
- Added Activity Map scroll reach tracking to the Activity Map extension (AN-172949)
