Hi all,

I need to fetch an eVar value against another eVar through Analytics API on postman. I am passing these eVars in the same request in Analytics call.

Is there any API request to achieve this kind of requirement?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Richa,

Here is an example that you can use for you request:

{

  "reportDescription": {

    "reportSuiteID": "rsid",

    "dateFrom": "2018-08-22",

    "dateTo": "2018-08-22",

    "breakdownType": "subrelation",

    "sortBy": "visits",

    "elements": [

      {

        "id": "evar1",

        "top": 10,

        "startingWith": 1

      },

      {

        "id": "evar2",

        "top": 10,

        "startingWith": 1

      }

    ],

    "metrics": [

      {

        "id": "visits"

      }

    ]

  }

}

you could use processing rules to populate another evar with combined values of the desired single evars (eg. [mid]|[customerid]) now use reporting to get realtime data of this combined evar value.

remark: I don't know if processing rules are before or after realtime data ...

Don't think this is allowed in real time API requests. I have not played around with this. However, if you can setup the real time report in UI, you should be able to get the data through API

Thanks for the quick response. Can this be real time?

Actually we are passing customerid in one evar(eVar1) and mid in another evar(eVar2). We want to fetch eVar2 value against eVar1 by passing eVar1 in request.

We will then use the fetched mid value in subsequent target API calls.

If there are any links or code to fulfill this request. It will be really helpful.
