Retrieving segment definitions via API

paull75389211 14-07-2014

We want to document and track versions of SiteCatalyst segment definitions outside of the system. 

 

The way we do this now is copy/pasting from the information window in SiteCatalyst but it's inefficient and prone to errors (e.g. marking exclusion blocks).

 

Looking a bit further into it I can see that when the information icon is clicked to view the segment definition it actually retrieves a json object from an appservice:

 

https://appservice1.omniture.com/analytics/1.0/segments/?expansion=definition

 

Which looks like this (apologies for this formatting):

 

{
  • "id": "53aaaf4ce4b0acd00fa0563b",
  • "name": "",
  • "description": null,
  • "rsid": "",
  • "owner":{
    • "id": 440376
    },
  • "definition":{
    • "container":{
      • "context": "hits",
      • "func": "container",
      • "pred":{
        • "val":{
          • "description": "Pages (Conversion) (evar7)",
          • "name": "variables/evar7",
          • "func": "attr"
          },
        • "str": "",
        • "func": "streq"
        }
      },
    • "func": "segment",
    • "version":[
      • 1,
      • 0,
      • 0
      ]
    }
}
 
When calling that url with a different segment id the response returns access denied (as it should). I would like to be able to download all json responses from any report suite for all segments though. Either through calling this service or via the SC API.
