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 Step 5: Update 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.
When you have added a link from a new resource to the Profiles resource, a new tab is automatically added in the profiles' detail view.
By adding this link, a Products tab, named after the Label of the new resource, is added to the profiles detail screen. The result is immediately visible after publishing the custom resource from the Profiles & audiences > Profiles menu. By clicking on a profile, the information from the Products custom resource appears in a new tab.
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.
