Oracle Infinity Product Release Notes for October 11, 2018

Version 1

    The following enhancements have been made to Oracle Infinity Data Collection:

     

    • Context (Configuration) Switching.  Dynamically switch tag contexts (configurations) through the use of page URL parameters or by specifying a configuration in the tag's "include" URL.  If you want the tag to load the "Video Tracking" configuration, for example, use either of the following methods:

      To dynamically change a configuration with a page URL parameter:  https://www.domain.com/directory/page.html?ora.context=analytics.VideoTracking
      To change a configuration using the tag's "include" URL:  c.oracleinfinity.io/acs/account/[accountGUID]/js/InfinityUI.odc.js?_ora.context=analytics:VideoTracking

    • Cross Domain Tracking Plugin. This plugin now excludes the visitor ID attachment to JavaScript and email links, which are typically offsite calls or redirects that do not result in a visitor landing on a page with an Oracle Infinity tag.  Appending a hash of the visitor ID in these scenarios can potentially interfere with normal modes of operation.  The link decoration logic has also been refined with this release of the plugin.

    • Tag Optimizations. Several improvements have been made that result in faster execution of the tag and with less overhead.



    The following enhancements have been made to Oracle Infinity Analytics:

     

    • Duplicate Names.  Infinity Analytics now prevents you from creating collections, reports, dimensions, and measures with a name that's already in use.  An error will prompt you to enter a unique name.  In the rare case where a duplicate name already existed prior to this release, a number has been appended to the end of the name.  For example, you may see a report name of "Devices" and "Devices (1)".  You can easily edit and change to a unique name, as needed. 

     

    • New Date Dimension.  A new standard dimension, called "Date", displays just the date, "2018-10-12", whereas the original "Date" dimension displayed the full date and time stamp, "2018-10-12T23:43:19.000-07:00".  The name of the original "Date" dimension with the date and time stamp has been changed to "Date-Time".  Both the "Date" and "Date-Time" dimensions are available for use in analytics.   

    The following Oracle Infinity defects have been resolved:

     

    • An error occurred when adding a regular expression to the datetime_utc parameter in Account Settings.   (INF-27341)
