How to connect Adobe Analytics to Databox

To connect an Adobe Analytics Account in Databox, go to  Data Manager > + New connection. Type Adobe Analytics in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the  Activation window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Adobe Analytics username and Shared Secret. 

To find your username and Shared Secret, navigate to User profile > Edit profile > Web Service in your Adobe Analytics Account. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Adobe Analytics to Databox?

When you connect a new Adobe Analytics Data Source in Databox, 3 months worth of historical data is initially synced. 

Pro Tip: Once your Adobe Analytics Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Adobe Analytics data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Adobe Analytics data sync in? 

Adobe Analytics data is synced in the time zone set in the Adobe Analytics Account. For example, if your Adobe Analytics Account time zone is set as EST, your Adobe Analytics data will sync with Databox in EST.
