Data Layer Enrichment Extension - Limitations?

Hi,

I have a question about the new Data Layer Enrichment Extension. It seems to be an interesting feature, which could help us with a certain use case, however im am not sure about its limitations. Is there a maximum of values, that can be uploaded? Since it is necessary with the extension to store the values in a seperate file for each product/page, we might need to upload 10 thousand files to use this feature, altough the amount of attributes in each file is quite small (maybe 2 or 3 on average). Is this possible or outside the limits of this feature?

My second question is in regard to using this extension with single page websites. At the moment, it is not possible. Is it planned to expand the extension, or release a public version of this api, so it could also be used on such websites?

 

Best regards,

Andreas

I don't believe there is a maximum number of files that you can upload, this was setup knowing that there could be tens of housands of lookups to be performed, which is why the files are being served from our Mutli-CDN. Since the service performs the lookup based on a perviously determined value, we don't need to perform a "search" across those tens of thousands of files, we know exactly which single file to download so it is very efficient.

 

Regarding SLA support, we do not have this in the roadmap at this time. Please reach out to your Account Manager and request this ability so they can submit your request through the proper internal channels.

 

Cheers,

@ahrasch we actually have found a limit on the number of files, although hopefully you won't hit against it.

There is no limit imposed by Tealium, but there is a limit of 300,000 files per Tealium profile because they all go into a single folder on the CDN server. The CDN imposes a limit of 300k files in a single folder.

If you hit close to this limit, then you will need to find a way to combine the data down into a smaller number of files.

Thanks to Dan and Fiann for the quick answer. We would be well within this limit. For the SPA support feature request, we will reach out to our account manager if necessary.

The 300k limitation no longer exists as it has been resolved. There is no max limit per profile.
