Managing Data Sources¶
Liferay Analytics Cloud requires two kinds of data. First, web analytics data on user interactions with Liferay DXP Pages and Assets. Second, profile data on the users themselves. Analytics Cloud syncs these two kinds of data so that you can see how users are interacting with your site and who those users are. First, provide Analytics Cloud with data sources.
Both kinds of data can be obtained from a Liferay DXP instance. If you have other user profile data in addition to what is already stored in Liferay DXP user models, you can import it from a CSV file or add with contact data from a Salesforce system.
Contact data is merged and consolidated into a single customer view. Liferay DXP data sources let you select Organizations and User Groups to sync. Individual contacts are matched by email address. You can define the contact data model using whatever field names and types you want, but Analytics Cloud makes it easy to define trivial model fields by suggesting values.
Viewing Your Data Sources¶
Your data sources can be viewed from the navigation panel.
Click on Data Sources.

Once you’ve created your data sources, you might need to modify them from time to time.
