Setting up the variables in the Adobe Experience Platform#

Understanding the data layer#

The data layer should have been implemented on your web page by your developers.

A data layer is an object that contains all of the information that you want to share with Adobe Experience Platform. Information such as events or variables can be shared to Adobe via the data layer, and triggers can be set up in Adobe Experience Platform based on the values of variables or based on the specific events.

Refer to the Adobe Experience developer guide for comprehensive details on how the data layer works.

Example of a data layer

window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || []
window.dataLayer.push({  'email':'jenny.smith@rokt.com',  'consumer': {    'firstname' : 'Jenny',    'lastname' : 'Smith'  },  'ecommerce': {    'transaction': {      'amount' : '12.36'    }  },  'event':'gtm.transactionComplete'});

Identifying your variable name#

Variables are set up in your Adobe Experience Platform and are matched to the data layer. Refer to the Adobe Experience developer guide for more details about variables.

The structure of your data layer on your page affects the data layer variable name in your Adobe Experience Platform. See the following examples.

Example data layer script 1

window.dataLayer.push({    'email':'jenny.smith@rokt.com'});
Data layer variable name: email

Example data layer script 2

window.dataLayer.push({    'consumer': {        'firstname' : 'Jenny'    }});
Data layer variable name: consumer.firstname

Example data layer script 3

window.dataLayer.push({    'ecommerce': {        'transaction': {            'amount' : '12.36'        }    }});
Data layer variable name: ecommerce.transaction.amount

Adding data elements#

  1. Navigate to the Data Elements tab and choose Add Data Element.
  2. Name your variable and choose Core as the extension and Local Storage as the Data Element Type.
  3. Enter the Local Storage Item Name that matches the variable name in your data layer setup by your developer.
