Can I send Event Data through Data Feed?

Avatar

Level 2

Background: I am configuring Data Feeds for several internal stakeholders. 

 

On the Data-feed configuration page we can select specific evars and props. However, I do not see any events that I can include in the data feed. Is this not possible?

 

Any help is appreciated.

You can't select specific events to send.. raw data feeds send all events in a two specific fields called event_list / post_event_list. This needs to be processed in conjunction with the event.tsv lookup table that is also provided... since you will not see the events like you do in Workspace.... "event1", "event5", etc....

 

All events are given a numeric representation, and the standard metrics will come first, then your custom events.

 

You should also be aware that the raw data feed generally needs quite a bit of massaging... all the traffic that is excluded in your Workspaces, Data Warehouse, Report Builder, etc  is still in the raw data - this means all bot traffic, all traffic from internal IPs, etc is part of the feed and will need to processed base on the exclude_hit field...

 

Honestly, you are probably better to configure your raw data feeds with ALL possible fields, and in your processing ignore what you don't need.... you can't modify the columns later, meaning that you have to cancel the entire feed and create a whole new one if you missed something.

One note, the more columns you require, the more processing time you would need on your side.
