Integrate your Segmanta surveys with your Akamai Identity Cloud
Akamai Identity Cloud users can set up an integration with Segmanta to enable user registration and user log-ins directly within a Segmanta survey for the purpose of expanding and enriching their database.
To set up an Akamai <> Segmanta Integration, follow the steps below:
1. Visit your Account Settings and navigate to the Akamai tab
2. Fill in the relevant Akamai settings and click Save
- SSO settings are recommended, but are not required to enable registration, sign in or enrichment
- Global Opt is an organization specific setting and is not required to enable registration or SSO
Once your Akamai settings are filled in on the account level, follow the steps below to add an Akamai integration to a specific survey:
1. Visit the builder of the survey you'd like to add an integration for.
2. Click Add Question.
3. Add both the Registration form question and Sign-in form questions.
4. On the Registration form, you must ensure that the post attributes are filled out for all fields required in Akamai for your registration to be completed. You can find the post attribute fields by clicking on +Registration Metadata at the bottom of the page.
Any additional fields you'd like to be passed to Akamai should also have a post attribute filled out. Please note, the post attributes must exactly match your Akamai database attributes.
To enrich your user profiles with survey question answers, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Survey Editor and click on the Configure tab, then navigate to the Integrations tab.
- Click + Add for the Akamai Identity Cloud integration.
- Turn on the toggle for each question you would like sent to Akamai and fill in the Attribute fields and associated answer choice Values.
Labeling plural attributes:
A plural is a special type of attribute that functions as a relational table within an Akamai user profile. Plurals function as "child" attributes under the user profile, allowing multi-layers of data to be associated with a single user. For example, if your survey asks questions about a respondent's dependent (i.e. child or pet), this information is defined in the Akamai integration as a plural attribute, which can contain multiple nested attributes.
Set the Nested attribute label (i.e. dependent) and define the nested element to be updated based on Sort Key, Sort Order, and Null Value. Only one nested element per question response can be updated.
Sort Key: Defines by what data field you would like Akamai to sort the nested attribute. For example, you can choose to sort by birthday to order dependents by age.
Sort Order: Now that you have chosen an element to sort your attributes by, you can define the order you would like the dependent data to be updated, by either ascending or descending order. Referring to the above example of birthday as a sort key, if you choose update by ascending, then the attribute of the youngest dependent will be updated.
Null First/Last: You may have values in Akamai that are null. If you want to override the Sort Order to prioritize populating the null value, you can sort by Null first. Contrastingly, to ignore all null values and follow Sort Order, you should choose null last.
