This API retrieves Gigya's reporting data.

Request URL

Where <Data_Center> is:
  • - For the US data center.
  • - For the European data center.
  • - For the Australian data center.
  • - For the Russian data center.
  • - For the Chinese data center.

If you are not sure of your site's data center, see Finding Your Data Center.


startDatestringThe first day of data to include in the report, in the format "YYYY-MM-DD".
endDatestringThe last day of data to include in the report, in the format "YYYY-MM-DD".



A comma-separated list of dimensions to include in the report, e.g., "date,ageGroup,gender". The report data will be grouped by these dimensions.

The currently supported dimensions are:

  • date
  • cid - Context ID. See the description of the "cid" parameter below.
  • provider
  • ageGroup - This will group the data by "1" for ages 12 and under, "2" for ages 13-17, "3" for ages 18-34, "4" for ages 35-49 and "5" for ages 50 and above.
  • gender - The data will be grouped by "Male", "Female" or "" (unspecified gender).



A comma-separated list of measures (data fields) to include in the report.

The currently supported measures are:

  • statusUpdates
  • streamPosts
  • referrals
  • notifications
  • newUsers
  • newSiteUsers
  • newConnections
  • logins
  • siteLogins
  • postBookmarks
  • emailRecipients
  • socializePV - This measure counts the number of times gigya.js had been called ('impressions'), and is only supported by sites implementing the JS with the API key in the url.
    • For the socializePV measure, the optional providers and cid dimensions (below) should always be empty. If you set the providers or cid dimensions with a value other than empty strings, you will receive zero impressions.
    • socializePV is only supported via the date dimension. Attempting to call socializePV as a measure while using any other dimensions will cause the query to fail.
  providersstringA comma-separated list of providers to include in the report. The report data will be filtered by these providers. The currently supported providers are: 'facebook', 'twitter', 'yahoo', 'microsoft', 'linkedin', 'qq', 'renren', 'sina' (Note: messenger has been replaced by microsoft, however, for backward compatibility, either can be used).
cidstringThe cid ("context ID") lets you filter the report data by site/application context. Each Gigya transaction may be associated with a cid (a string of maximum 100 characters length). The cid allows you to associate the report information with your own internal data, for example, to identify a specific widget or page on your site/application.
dataFormatstringDetermines the format of the data field of the response. The options are either "csv" (default) or "json".
format string Determines the format of the response. The options are:
  • json (default)
  • jsonp - if the format is jsonp then you are required to define a callback method (see parameter below).
callback string This parameter is required only when the format parameter is set to jsonp (see above). In such cases this parameter should define the name of the callback method to be called in the response, along with the jsonp response data.
httpStatusCodes Boolean The default value of this parameter is false, which means that the HTTP status code in Gigya's response is always 200 (OK), even if an error occurs. The error code and message is given within the response data (see below). If this parameter is set to true, the HTTP status code in Gigya's response would reflect an error, if one occurred.
