Segmentation APIs

  • Hello,

    I am currently working on a feature for which i would like to use Segmentation (basically what is present in the Design portal under segmentation). I want to determine in which segments a certain player falls in by reading data at login and be able to take certain actions depending on that data. Are there any APIs that allow the usage of said feature? Could you also let me know how when segments are updated? I am interested to know if these are real time or have a time scheduling behind them.

    Hi Claudiu,

    Segments are updated nightly, and also when a user logs in (so that they are fresh).

    They are primarily used in determining sales promotions and segmenting push notifications right now.

    Currently, there isn't an API to return the current list of segments the user is in - that is something that we definitely plan to address shortly -- it's definitely an omission!


  • Hello,

    Thanks for the reply. Is there a time frame attached to the Segmentation API or at least a version in which this will be landing?

    Hi @Alexandru ,

    We've just officially added the Segment call you're looking for to brainCloud 4.55 - which is targeted for release in the next ~30 days...
