    In this topic, you will learn about the Analytics API account dimension. The account dimension is used to retrieve overall analytics data for the account.

    URL parameters

    Analytics API reports support the following URL parameters.

    URL Parameters
    Parameter Description Required Values Default
    account The accounts you want to report on yes one or more account ids as a comma-delimited list none
    dimensions The dimension(s) to report on yes one or more dimensions as a comma-delimited list (some combinations are not valid - use the interactive tool here to determine if a combination is valie) none
    where Used to specify filters for reports no {dimension}=={value} - one or more as a semi-colon-delimited list. The value will be one or more values for the primary metric of that dimension. For example: video==video_id, country=country-code, or viewer=viewer_id (in the last case, the form of the viewer_id will vary depending on whether you are capturing and sending some kind of viewer_id yourself or depending on the value generated by the analytics system). none
    limit Number of items to return no positive integer 10
    offset Number of items to skip no positive integer 0
    sort Field to sort items on no any field that is being returned by the request video_view
    fields Fields to return no varies according to the dimension you are reporting on video,video_view
    format Format to return results in no json (default) | csv | xlxs json
    reconciled If included, will limit results to either historical or realtime data. Analytics data is derived from multiple sources: some is sent by the player, but other data is collected from CDNs and the Video Cloud system. In order to deliver analytics as quickly as possible, we start delivering "real-time" data as soon as it is available, and then adjust the analytics later when data from all sources has been collected and processed. The fully processed data is called reconciled no true | false true
    from The beginning of the date range for the request no One of the following:
    • An ISO 8601 date (YYYY-MM-DD)
    • Epoch time in milliseconds (example: 1659641316719 [= Thursday, August 4, 2022 7:28:36.719 PM GMT]). See the Epoch time converter.
    • A string: from=alltime
    • +/- relative dates in days (d), weeks (w), or months (m) - example: from=-6m&to=%2B2w (the period from 6 months ago to 2 weeks after that -- note that the + sign needs to be URI encoded as %2B)

    Only dates within the past 32 days are allowed for engagement endpoints or if reconciled=false.

    -30d
    to The end of the date range for the request no One of the following:

    • A string: to=now
    • +/- relative dates in days (d), weeks (w), or months (m) - example: from=-6m&to=%2B2w (the period from 6 months ago to 2 weeks after that -- note that the + sign needs to be URI encoded as %2B)

    Only dates within the past 32 days are allowed for engagement endpoints or if reconciled=false.
