Migrating to Segmentation and Personalization¶
Starting with Liferay 7.2, Segmentation and Personalization functionality was integrated into the core product. Users of Audience Targeting must migrate their Audience Targeting segments to the core Liferay Segmentation.
There are three steps in this migration:
Upgrade to Liferay DXP 7.2+.
Migrate custom rules and display properties.
Migrate behavior-based features.
First, upgrade to the latest version of Liferay DXP following the upgrade guide. Most of your Audience Targeting configuration is automatically transferred into Liferay Segmentation during the upgrade.
Next, migrate the Audience Targeting custom rules considering the following information:
Re-evaluate the need for any Audience Targeting custom rules, taking into account the Liferay Segmentation functionality.
Some custom rules may have an equivalent. See Migrating User Segments for more information.
For Audience Targeting rules with no equivalent, you need to migrate these rules manually.
If you need to re-implement a rule entirely, follow the information in Introduction to Segmentation Development.
You must also migrate the display widgets since the new Personalization features in Liferay DXP 7.2+ use different tools.
Finally, you must migrate the behavior-based functionality in Audience Targeting. Starting with Liferay DXP 7.2+, behavior-based rules are managed using Liferay Analytics Cloud. For more information, see the Analytics Cloud documentation.
