Where to find your Adobe Analytics username and secret, API limitations, reports, and error descriptions
Accessing the Adobe Analytics Connector
To access your Adobe Analytics account using our connector, you must link your credentials first.
To find your Adobe Analytics login details (username and secret), follow the steps below:
- Log in to Adobe Analytics.
- Click on the Account Profile icon > Edit Profile in the top right corner of the screen.
- On the Account Information page, under Web Services, you’ll see the Username and Shared Secret. If you don’t see it, ask someone with Admin rights to give you access to Web Services.
- Username format is username: company and the secret is 32 characters long.
In order to use the Adobe Analytics connector, your Adobe account needs to be API-enabled by the account admin.
Here's a screenshot that should help your admin enable your Adobe account.
