It would be nice to have the ability to download all segment definitions into csv file, just like dowloading of report suite information into csv file. I want to be able to document them offline.
Yes, I would love this function.
It would be great also to have possibility of complete import/export of segments
@wolocd01 , for whatever it's worth, you should be able to import and export segment definitions currently using the Adobe Analytics API.
@benjamingaines, can you send me instruction how can I import/export segment using API?
I know api can do it, so are you saying users will need to learn things like rest, json, soap and programming language in order to download segment definition?
This is a perfectly legitimate request from a lot of users, why can't we make it simpler for users?
@CiscoWebex Sorry, definitely not suggesting that average users need to become proficient with the API. Just offering a possible workaround at a company level in the short term, meaning that my intent was that someone with a modest technical aptitude could download the segment definitions every so often. If that's not possible, then I'm afraid in the short-term I don't have a good answer. All I can do is try.
We definitely can make it simpler for users. The question, as always, is priority. There are a LOT of things we want to do to make analytics easier. This is one of them.
@wolocd01 Let me see if I can track down the documentation. It is on https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/en_US somewhere.
Thanks Ben, you are right, it is a nice to have, not a must have kind of thing.
@wolocd01 : The method you want is documented here:
https://marketing.adobe.com/developer/en_US/documentation/segments-1-4/r-get-1. Just make sure to add "definition" as a field when you request the segment(s). Not ideal, but hopefully it's a start!
