You can add new fields to a resource to store data that are not part of the out of the box data model.
Check the Add access authorization management fields box to include the fields stating who has access rights to that particular resource.
These fields appear in the data and metadata that can be displayed once the database update has been carried out. For more on this, refer to the Updating the database structure section.
Each resource must have at least one unique key. For example, you can specify a key so that two products cannot have the same ID in a purchase table.
An index can reference one or several resource fields. Indexes allow the database to sort records in order to recover them more easily. They optimize the performances of SQL queries.
By adding this link, a Purchase tab is added to the profiles detail screen from the Profiles & audiences > Profiles menu. Please note that this is specific to the Profile resource.
For more information on segment code, refer to the Segmentation section.
The administrator should have extended the Profile resource with a custom field.
In order to generate a new sub-dimension linked to the Profile dimension, check the Add this field in Dynamic reporting as a new dimension option.
For more information on Dynamic Reporting, refer to the List of components.
The number of fields sent to Dynamic Reporting is limited to 20.
In the custom resource screen, the Summary pane indicates the status of the newly created resource. You can manage its access and its general properties.
By default, profiles and custom resources have no business ID when they are created. You can enable an option that generates automatically a unique ID when elements are created. This ID can be used to:
The ACS ID field is now available and automatically populated when new elements are created manually, from the API, or inserted from an import workflow. The ACS ID field is a UUID field and is indexed.
When exporting profiles or custom resources, you can now add the ACS ID column if it has been enabled for that resource. You can reuse this ID in your external tools to identify records.
When re-importing data that have been processed/updated in another application (for example a CRM), you can reconcile it easily with this unique ID.
The ACS ID field is not updated for profiles or elements created before activating the option. Only new records will have an ACS ID. This field is in read-only mode. You cannot modify it.
