Configuring the connection

The Push Frequency determines when BlueConic data will be sent to BlueKai. Three options are available:
  • Each Page View
  • Only when the Variables change
  • Once per Visit
BlueKai Site Id
The unique site identifier in BlueKai.
Email properties
Enumerate the profile properties that contain email addresses, so they can be passed on as hashed values to BlueKai instead of as plain text.
