Developing user interaction that uses Personalization and Campaigns can involve setting up properties (such as User Profile or Session properties) that are used to define the conditions under which users will be targeted with personalized content.
User Profile property sets contain conditions that identify users. For example, you could classify all users who ordered more than five on-demand movies in the last 30 days. If visitors match the defined characteristics, they automatically become members of that User Segment and are shown specific web content with Content Selectors or they are targeted with Campaign actions.
This chapter describes how to change the values in your User Profile property sets. The properties are used in the conditions you define for your Personalization logic. Each user is dynamically served personalized web content, automatic e-mails, or discounts based on the logic conditions.
Developers used Workshop for WebLogic when they created property sets and properties (see Creating a Property Set for instructions on creating property sets and properties). Portal administrators can use the WebLogic Portal Administration Console to update property values.
This chapter includes the following sections:
For information on setting up and managing users that will experience Interaction Management features, see the User Management Guide.
Developers can edit property sets, properties, and conditions in Workshop for WebLogic. You can edit the property values in the WebLogic Portal Administration Console.
Developers can use Workshop for WebLogic to modify properties or conditions and their values for User Profiles, User Segments, HTTP session or request data, date and time conditions, or events. For instructions, see Modifying Properties and Conditions.
When an attribute's value is requested for a particular user or group, and an attribute has not explicitly been assigned, then any default value assigned when the property set attribute was created is returned. Editing a value using the Administration Console or tags overrides that default value, allowing personalization for that user or group.
Developers can use the
<profile:setProperty> JSP tag in JSPs or the Property control in a Page Flow to modify existing property values for users.
Perform the following steps to modify a property’s value:
You can use Workshop for WebLogic to delete individual properties from a property set, and you can delete an entire property set. See Deleting a Property or a Property Set for instructions.
Perform the following steps to remove a property’s value in the WebLogic Portal Administration Console:
