Is it possible to use web8 microservice (oData) to achieve profiling and personalisation? if yes where I can find documentation for the same?

1 Answer 1


As far as I know, the (legacy) Personalization & Profiling functionality is not exposed through SDL Web 8 CIL APIs, but only in the (deprecated) in-process APIs.

Note that Experience Optimization (and to some extent Context Expressions) functionality is considered the successor of Personalization & Profiling functionality. But, admittedly, neither covers all of P&P.

Can you elaborate on where you need P&P for?

  • We want to Personalizing content in Android or IOS Apps. May 24, 2017 at 21:02
  • Can you give a concrete example of "Personalizing content" ? May 25, 2017 at 12:07
  • If user is navigating to the same type of product information or if user belongs to specific region, we want to show targeted content. May 25, 2017 at 20:01
  • I think that Experience Optimization is suitable for this kind of requirements. May 26, 2017 at 17:56
  • When checked with SDL they don't have any documentation related to Smart target usage in Mobile Apps , looks like no one used this scenario. May 30, 2017 at 15:17
