Asset Insights

You are reading the AEM 6.2 version of Asset Insights.
This documentation is also available for the following versions:  AEM 6.3 

The Asset Insights feature enables you to track user ratings and usage statistics of Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) assets that are used in third-party websites, marketing campaigns, and Adobe's creative solutions to derive insights regarding their performance and popularity. 

Assets Insights captures user activity details such as number of times an asset is rated, clicked, and impressions (number of times the asset is loaded on the website) and assigns scores to assets based on these statistics. You can use the scores and performance statistics to select popular assets for inclusion in catalogs, marketing campaigns, and so on. You can even formulate archival and license renewal policies for assets based on these statistics. 

For Assets Insights to capture usage statistics for AEM assets from a website, you must include the embed code for the asset in the website code.

To enable Asset Insights display usage statistics for assets, first configure the feature to fetch reporting data from Adobe Analytics. For more details, see Configuring Asset Insights.

    Note

The time period for which the data is displayed depends the schedule of the fetch operation that Asset Insights runs to retrieve Analytics data.

  5. To view performance statistics for the asset graphically over a period of time, select period in the Performance Statistics section. Details, including clicks and impressions are displayed as trend lines of a graph.
