Use Adobe Analytics to track app user data and track marketing compaigns. Apps gather anonymous usage data for all app types. This data is collected whether users are online or offline. Data is not collected for preflight apps. If you are required to allow your users to opt out of analytics data collection, you can enable an opt-in option when you build your app. (For more information, see Analytics Report Guide for AEM Mobile.)

Analytics is provided by Experience Cloud and is powered by the Mobile Marketing Services SDK:

  • If your company has an Adobe Analytics account, with a Master Admin account, you can specify information about this account information in Master Settings

This step links your projects to the Adobe Analytics account.

  • If you do not have an Adobe Analytics account, you can request a complimentary Analytics Essentials account in Master Settings.
  • You can also purchase additional Experience Cloud capabilities such as In-App Messaging and Acquisition tracking.
  • You cannot have AEM Mobile analytics data in Digital Publishing Suite report suites. 

For AEM Mobile apps, data collection is completed in a new report suite.

To access In-App Messaging and Acquisition tracking, go to https://mobilemarketing.adobe.com. Both of these services, as with all other Digital Marketing Cloud services, are premium products that require an additional license fee.

Setting up Analytics for the account

The Master Admin should set up Analytics for an account and all its projects.

  1. Sign in to the On-Demand Portal (https://aemmobile.adobe.com) using a Master Admin Adobe ID.

  2. Click Master Settings in the left rail, and then click the General tab.

  3. Do either of the following:

    • If you have an existing Analytics account, enter your Analytics company name, username, and password. Once verified, this Company Name will be used for all projects created under this Master Account. Applications will send analytics data to report suites owned by this Company.
    • If you do not have an Analytics account, click Request Account. You should receive an email message with instructions for setting up your Analytics Essentials for Apps account.
    Setting up Analytics for the account

    It might take a few days for your analytics account to be set up. You should receive an email message from Adobe that specifies your Company, User Name, and Password.

  4. In Master Settings > General, enter the information (Company, User Name, and Password) you receive from Adobe into the Analytics Verification section. Click "Verify and Save."

    This step is required to access analytics data within your report suites in the Analytics Login Company that was provisioned for you.

  5. After your Analytics account is set up, specify a Report Suite name for each project you create.

    Analytics account options

    For each project, the Master Admin should also specify a Report Suite name to distinguish the app data from the data of other apps in the account. See Creating projects for AEM Mobile.

  6. Go to the Mobile Marketing Dashboard (https://mobilemarketing.adobe.com) and sign in using your analytics credentials. Make sure that your app is configured properly, as described in the next section.

Configuring your Analytics Essentials for Apps account

In most cases, Adobe Analytics Essentials for Apps has been set up properly for your project. However, if your account has not been set up, follow these steps.

1. Go to https://mobilemarketing.adobe.com and sign in.

2. Select Manage Apps > All Apps.

3. Select “Add”.

4. In the Report Suite dropdown, select the Report Suite ID (RSID) that you provided when setting up your project.

The Report Suite will likely appear as ‘ap.or.00.’ or similar (ap=“Adobe Publish”; or=“Oregon Data Center; 00=instance 0). It is important to use the RSID and leave the Type as DPS. You can fill in the Name and Description fields as you see fit.

 

Select Manage Apps > All Apps

Configuring Mobile Marketing app settings

Use the Mobile Marketing Dashboard to configure analytics settings for your project. For example, if you build an app that requires HTTPS domains instead of HTTP, you can edit settings.

1. Go to https://mobilemarketing.adobe.com and sign in.

2. Select Manage Apps > All Apps.

3. Create an app or select an app.

4. Change settings as required. For example, select Use HTTPS to ensure that analytics calls are HTTPS compliant.

5. After you save your settings, rebuild your app. Rebuilding your app is required in order to pick up any configuration changes made in the Mobile Marketing Dashboard.
