The Audience Manager integration has been deprecated in AEM 6.2.
For more information, please read Deprecated Features.
The Audience Manager integration provides two new components in the Client Context that allows authors to simulate the impact of Audience Manager Traits on AEM content driven by segmentation. The components are not configured by default, but may be added.
Select the ClientContext you want to configure, and double click on the page (in this case default).
You will see an unconfigured Client Context with a sidekick containing an Audience Manager Segments component and an Audience Manager Traits component:
- The Audience Manager Segments component gives the Author feedback on the Audience Manager Segments the client context profile has triggered.
- The Audience Manager Traits component allows an Author to manipulate the Audience Manager Traits a client context profile is triggering.
Before any Audience Manager Traits can be triggered, a selection of traits must be identified and added to the component. In a typical AudienceManager service there may be thousands of available traits, so we use a search dialog to find traits to which your Audience Manager service is configured to trigger.
The Audience Manager Traits box will be updated with the traits you selected. When the slider is green, the trait is selected. If it is red then the trait is not selected.
The Audience Manager Segments list reflects the Audience Manager Traits that the AudienceManager service reported as being triggered.
Depending on the location of your instance relative to the Audience Manager service, the update of Audience Manager Segments may not be instant. The error.log will report slow requests. If you regularly see reports of greater than a few seconds, talk to your Audience Manager contact.
In addition to the Audience Manager Segments component, the standard AEM segmentation component will reflect changes to AEM segments that match the selection. The URL for all AEM segments derived from AudienceManager will be /etc/segmentation/aam/. This subtree is generated during the Cloud Service configuration. You may reuse the rules of that subtree anywhere in the AEM segmentation tree.
That completes the configuration of the Client Context. The component setup, and the Audience Manager Traits configuration is shared by all profiles associated with the Client Context. The traits that are selected for each profile will reflect the traits that were last selected for that profile. To verify this, try switching profiles.
