Profile API settings

Enable or disable authentication for batch updates via Adobe Target APIs and generate a profile authentication token.

Adobe Target creates and maintains a profile for every individual user. This profile is stored on the Target edge cluster and is updated in real time after every visit; however, you can update a profile individually or in bulk via API.

For added security, you can require that the Bulk Update API call require a valid access token to be passed in the header of the request.

To require authentication and to generate an access token using the Target UI:

  1. Click Administration > Implementation.

  2. Under Profile API slide the Require Authentication toggle to the enabled or disabled position.

  3. (Conditional) If you enabled authentication requirements, click Generate New Profile Authentication Token.

    The token expires according to the time listed in the Expires In box.

    You must have one of the following user permissions to generate an authentication token:

    You can also generate a profile authentication token via API. For more information, see "Profiles" in the Adobe Target Admin and Profile API guide.

  4. Copy the token and include it in the header of the request in the format: "Authorization" : "Bearer."

  5. Click Generate New Profile Authentication Token to regenerate the token as needed.
