I don't believe this is possible, but wanted to ask before I gave up .
Is there a way to create a filter/segment within the Adobe Analytics reporting suite that allows you to filter by a specific set of values, but one that is potentially very large, and with a very high level of cardinality. For example, say I have a list of 500 ID's thatt I want to create a filter/segment for, but I do not want to manually paste in each ID, line by line, to create my segment. Due to the nature of the data, regular expressions simply would not work.
Is this something that is possible? for the record, what I am trying to do here is take a customer evar (client ID) and run it against various tools within Adobe Analytics (such as the pathing analysis).
I know it's been almost a month since your reply, but I've finally gotten to this task and managed to get the API explorer working. I've created a few test segments, but I am finding that this method also does not work when the data set i am filtering against is very large. For example, I currently have about 8,000 unique values (encrypted customer ID's) that i'd like to filter against, and the error that I am receiving looks like this.
I can't imagine the reason being anything other than the segment has too many unique values to parse against. Is there something I can do here, or am I out of luck?
thanks for your reply, and sorry i could not respond sooner.. I'm not that technical so i'm not familiar with how API's work in this context, but this looks like what I need so I will try to get this working.
The variable is a custom Evar that is essentially a "customer ID" within our own customer database.
Unfrotunately there wouldn't be a way for me to run a query that filters for these ID's specifically within workspace. There are probably over 3.5M+ total ID's that exist, and i cant think of any common behaviourial characteristic that will allow me to pinpoint these 500 ID's specifically.
Not sure what you mean by API unfortunately, could you elaborate on that? Would there be a seperate application involved?
Thanks for your reply. I don't think report builder would work for my requirements—let me try to explain it better.
Let's say that I have 500 unique customer ID's that look like this XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, with several different alphanumeric characters that are completely randomized with no patterns. There is no way for a regular expression to cover all of the values.
Is there a way to bulk upload these values, or to somehow create a filter/segment by pasting in all of these values at once? (assuming i have them in a 500-row spreadsheet) Is the only way to filter by these values manually pasting in each individual value?
