Q&A

"Default variables" means ...

  1. They are declared on each account per default? --> Yes, by our servers

  2. They are populated automatically by DataCommander tag? No

TRUST variables

Consents from our product Trust (our Consent Management Platform) are stored on users and you can segment or export these values with these variables:

Trust variables in Data Commander

Variables types

String

  • Allows to treat all kinds of data, incl. "" (empty)

  • Can come from collect, API, import

  • Can be used with text operator such as 'contains', 'begins with'...

  • All variables coming from MIX must be declared as String

Integer

  • Is either negative {-1, -2,-3, -4, -5, ... }, positive {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... }, or zero {0}

  • Can come from collect, API, import

  • Can be used with numeric operators for segmentation

Cannot be empty

Date

  • Please be careful when you try to use this very specific type

  • Format is very specific: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss

  • Cannot be empty

  • Can come from collect, API, import

  • Can be used for timing segmentation, in the past "ago" AND in the future "from now"

Boolean

  • Is used to retrieve true / false for a specific information

  • Can come from collect, API, import

  • Can be used in the segmentation either with 1/0 - true/false - T/F: these 3 options retrieve the same results, any other usage will retrieve the value of true

  • Cannot be empty

  • Be careful this is case sensitive!!!

Float

  • Is whatever figure you want

  • Cannot be empty

  • Can come from collect, API, import

  • Can be used with numeric operator

Object

  • Used to store several information in one variable

Example: { age : 12, gender : M }

  • Cannot be updated from collect data layer (because tag converts objects to strings); Can only be updated by API or FTP import

  • Cannot be used for segmentation, only for exports

  • Cannot be empty

Session variables

This is the list of proper variables you can use

How to use them?

Variables available in the user universe

  • First session date / Last session date = the first / last session date that is associated to a TCID

    • date format

    • can be used for segmentation

    • available operators: beteween / not between + date range

  • Count session = the number of sessions associated to a TCID for a specific date range

    • integer

    • can be used for segmentation

    • available operators: exactly / at least / at most + date range

  • Total session = the total number of sessions associated to a TCID

    • integer

    • can be used for segmentation

    • available operators: all operators that can be used for integers

    • as a classic user property there is no date range

Variable available in the page view universe

  • New session = the first session variable populated on pageviews

    • boolean

    • can be used for segmentation (but honestly quite complicated to really use it...)

    • available operators: equals T/F

    • Be careful: it never matches 100% as you have many TCID older than 30 days where the variable new session in page views is not populated

Variable encryption

Some information about how data is encrypted in DataCommander (in AES 256 format)

If you need encrypted data in DataCommander don't forget to pick 'Yes' in encrypted option in Create variable step.

This is the encryption scheme:

DATA

Start

SSL

FTP Server

In base

In Export

Datalayer

Clear

-

Clear

It means that we store encrypted data, and we are able to export clear data for our partners.

It is very important especially for emails, as it is a sensitive data that many clients want to over-secure, but we need to export it in clear for emailers to be able to use it
