If you are using EventStore/EventStream Legacy (ESL) to export live events and data, we recommend upgrading to EventStore. EventStore is powered by the Tealium Collect tag and offers many benefits over ESL.
In this article:
There are several reasons to switch to EventStore:
The downloaded JSON file will have a .gz extension as of August 4, 2017. All files downloaded before August 4, 2017 will have the .gzip extension. Learn more about this change here.
|Tag in charge of fetching live events||EventStore||Tealium Collect|
|Ability to create and export filtered event feeds||✘||✔|
|Compatible with EventDB||✘||✔|
|Frequency of upload to Tealium's S3 bucket||Once a day||Once per hour|
|File format available for download||log file (*.tgz)||compressed (*.gz)|
|Structure of event data||space-delimited (unstructured)||flattened JSON (structured)|
Use the following steps to upgrade from ESL to EventStore:
Confirm that the Collect Tag is working properly before you delete or deactivate ESL, as you cannot add the ESL tag back from the tag marketplace.When complete, the Current Published Locations should display Unpublished.
You can select "All Events" or choose only the filtered event feeds that are important to you and your organization.
If you have the access key for ESL, it will not work for EventStore. You must get a new Amazon S3 access key. For additional information, contact your account manager.
