POST Body

The following tables describe the search parameters available.

Element Name Optional? Data Type Description
BehaviorId no String The encrypted-behavior-id is passed in the olytics.fire() function. Usually a client will have a different once for each of their websites.
BehaviorAttributeType no String The Behavior Attribute Type (olytics field) that you wish to search for matching customers. The Behavior Attribute Type is passed in the olytics.fire() function. Some common attribute type would be “tag”, “category”, “Olytics Tag”, and “Olytics Category”.
BehaviorAttributeValue no String The Behavior Attribute Value(olytics valid value) tied to the Behavior Attribute Type. The Behavior Attribute Value is the open-text field passed in the olytics.fire() function.
VisitDateStart no Date (yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss) A required field that searches for olytics page views that happened *after* this date. So if the user passes 2019-06-01 00:00:00 – the API would only return customers whose visits happened after June 1st at 12:00AM CST.
VisitDateEnd yes Date (yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss) An optional field that searches for olytics page views that happened *before* this date. So if the user passes 2019-09-01 00:00:00 – the API would only return customers whose visits happened before September 1st at 12:00AM CST.
MinimumVisitCount yes Number If specified – you can narrow down the customers returned by the API to only those who have a minimum number of X visits during the data range in question (and in conjunction with your other search parameters).
