How To Get The SDI Toolkit
The SDI Toolkit extends Launch, by Adobe by providing four brand new Data Element types. These include the: Data Element Translator, Launch Build Info, Malformed URL Error, and One Way Hash.
Data Element Translator
The Data Element Translator is the first of these new types. This one allows you to pipe the value of one data element (like a country code) through a table lookup to produce the appropriate matched value.
Launch Build Info
The Launch Build Info data element type extends Launch, by Adobe by exposing four variables for use in data collection and conditional logic in rules. Launch Build Info : environment allows you to know which environment you are in (dev, stage, prod) and take action accordingly.
Malformed URL Error
The Malformed URL Error data element type will help close the loop on bad campaign tracking due to poorly constructed query strings. This new data element type detects eight common errors in URLs and query strings and provides four different options for feedback. As a bonus convenience, the SDI Toolkit provides a new Condition type which will return true if any malformations are detected.
One Way Hash
The new One Way Hash data element type allows you to protect your customer’s information. Just feed it with your customer id, and it gives back a 64 character SHA256 hash. This is just what you need to securely feed customer IDs into the Adobe Experience Cloud ID service to enable cross device stitching.
The new Swipe Gesture event type allows you to write rules triggered by any (or all) of the four Swipe gestures on mobile.
Launch, by Adobe has pretty much covered all the bases when it comes to referencing persisted values. Adobe DTM had cookie based data elements. Launch now has sessionStorage and localStorage based data elements. With the SDI Toolkit, four new Action types allow you to use the UI and fully configure the setting and removal of cookies, sessionStorage, and localStorage values. We’ve put all the controls right at your fingertips.
