Wondering if any of you all could help me understand the format of an outbound file:

Does anyone know what the “5” and the 13-digit string that follows the Segment SID represent?

Thank you!

This destination uses a format with the following macros:

SEGMENT_LIST:{seg|<seg.sid>,<seg.type>,<seg.lastUpdateTime>}

Which is segment ID, 5 (hardcoded for segment data), and the Unix timestamp the last time the segment was realized.

You can see more on the file macros here: File Format Macros

Hi caseyo84500701​,

The 13 digit may be the timestamp in unix epoch format, but not sure on the 5. Are you able to provide the destination ID this format came from by chance?

Hmm, good thought. We do have a recency/frequency setting but its >= 1 time in <= 30 days

Perhaps there is a frequency setting on the segment? Just a thought.

Hi Shane,

Thanks for the assistance. The "5" is very curious; the destination ID is 90938

Thanks!
