Adobe System Status

Adobe System Status provides detailed information, status updates, and email notifications about Adobe cloud products and services outage, disruption, and maintenance events. Check it out at status.adobe.com .
Released: May 21, 2020
What's new
  • Using your Adobe ID, you can subscribe to event notifications with more granularity, down to the product offering and add-on level. To help you setup your subscription faster, the self-subscription process now recommends a selection of products and offerings based on your product entitlements. This should reduce the number of emails you receive, and deliver more relevant notifications in your inbox. Get started at status.adobe.com/subscriptions .
New features and enhancements available today
Feature
Description
Improved subscription and notification user experience
  • Marketo Engage regional locations are now filtered based on the list of product offerings selected.
  • Marketo Engage email notifications are relevant to the user's region, location, and environment preferences.
Event subscription confirmation
  • You can now get an email confirmation when subscribing to on-going single event updates.
Global navigation usability enhancements
  • Consistent user experience with Adobe.com at the top level navigation menu.

Experience Cloud interface

General updates to Experience Cloud interface.
Updated interface menu
In Experience Cloud, the July 16, 2020 release updates the Application Switcher drop-down menu. It has been streamlined so that solution logos are removed, and the menu displays only the applications and services to which you have access.
See Experience Cloud interface product documentation for an example.
Unified product domain
Adobe has been updating the domain and interface header to unify and improve your experience across all Experience Cloud applications. These enhancements are designed to simplify your experience in small but important ways. These enhancements do not change your current workflows.
Updates include:
  • New application URLs: experience.adobe.com/<application name> :
    • All products will eventually adopt this URL pattern. Look for new URLs to become effective throughout the month.
    • Browser support: Supported browsers include Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera (latest versions). Note: Although Experience Cloud interface supports these browsers, individual applications might not support every browser. (For example, Analytics does not support Opera, and Target does not support Safari.)
    • (Safari only) The domain change may cause cookie issues in Safari. Deselecting Prevent cross-site tracking in the Safari Privacy Preferences enables cookies across domains (and all cross-site experiences), and allows Experience Cloud to function on this new domain.
  • Easier switching between your organizations or to a different application.
  • Improved product help: Experience League is integrated into the product so that a help search also includes results from community forums and video content. This change simplifies access to more content and helps you get the most out of Experience Cloud. Additionally, click Help > Feedback to report issues or share your ideas with Adobe.

EOL of Adobe Data Connectors
July 13, 2020
Adobe Data Connectors are powered by legacy technology that is no longer viable or supported. We have a new standard in the Adobe Exchange Partner Program that should be adopted for any integrations that wish to continue to be offered and supported. The official end-of-life date is still to be determined, but we anticipate it to be in the next 12-18 months (mid 2021 to end of 2021). Learn more...
Report suite mapping to IMS org
July 2020
The report suite mapping tool will be discontinued in November 2020. This feature powers integrations such as Advertising Analytics and Experience Cloud segment publishing in Adobe Analytics. A report suite must be mapped to an IMS org to enable these and other services. Newer report suites are automatically mapped upon creation. However, older report suites must be manually mapped to an IMS org. See Map report suites to an organization in the Core Services user guide to make sure all report suites belong to an IMS org.
Migration to unified product domain
Effective date: May 28, 2020
The migration to a unified product domain for Adobe Analytics, which began in January 2020, completed on May 28, 2020. While Adobe Analytics works to remove all omniture.com domain references from its architecture, it is important to allowlist omniture.com as a third-party cookie. When the full architecture migration is (soon) completed, we will notify you via the release notes and this allowlist step will no longer be needed. Here is a full list of recommended IP addresses and domains that you should allowlist.
If your organization blocks third-party cookies, please reach out to Customer Care to regain your access to Adobe Analytics.
New Adobe Analytics default landing page
Effective Date: June 18, 2020
On June 18, 2020, the default landing page for Adobe Analytics will change from Reports to Workspace. This change will occur for any users who have not previously set a custom landing page.
Third-party technology allowlist
March 12, 2020 (effective date)
Adobe Analytics has begun leveraging third-party technologies for feature rollout management and in-product support. The following URLs should be added to any necessary network firewall allowlists to ensure full feature access:
  • Gainsight: https://esp.aptrinsic.com
  • LaunchDarkly: https://app.launchdarkly.com
Improved redundancy for Analysis Workspace availability
May 21, 2020
In order to ensure availability of Analysis Workspace, we are adding a secondary CDN (Content Delivery Network) for improved redundancy. The following URLs should be added to any necessary network firewall allowlists:
  • https://aaui-879784980514.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws
  • https://d30ln29764hddd.cloudfront.net
  • https://awaascicdprodva7.blob.core.windows.net
  • https://aauicdnva7.azureedge.net
Change to how Entries/Exits are calculated in Workspace
April 7, 2020
In Analysis Workspace, as of March 2020, we have changed how the None value interacts with Entries/Exits. Because you can now turn Nones on and off in Analysis Workspace, we apply the None value after the entry or exit, whereas (for eVars) it used to be applied before entry or exit. For example, assume that the first hit of a visit has no value for eVars, but the second hit does. In Reports & Analytics the first hit will show as Unspecified for the Entry, but in Analysis Workspace it will show up as the value on the second hit.
EOL of Dashboard Archive
March 27, 2020
The View Archive setting under Manage Dashboards in Reports & Analytics will no longer be available as of October, 2020.
EOL of Analytics Legacy APIs
January 9, 2020
In November 2020, the following Analytics Legacy API services will reach their end-of-life and will be shutdown. Current integrations built using these services will stop working.
  • 1.3 Analytics APIs
  • 1.4 SOAP Analytics APIs
  • Legacy OAuth Authentication (OAuth and JWT)
We have provided a Legacy API EOL FAQ to help answer your questions and provide guidance on how to proceed. API integrations that employ these services can migrate to the 1.4 Analytics REST APIs or the 2.0 Analytics APIs . Legacy OAuth accounts can migrate to an Adobe IO Analytics integration account, which can be used to access both the 1.4 Analytics APIs and 2.0 Analytics APIs.
San Jose FTP Broker Ending for London and Singapore
July 2020
For customers in London and Singapore, we will no longer support brokering of data between London or Singapore and the San Jose data center ftp.omniture.com .
EOL of Ad Hoc Analysis
Aug 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, visit Discover Workspace .
