Report on metrics by Browser or Operating System

Sometimes, an issue comes up whose cause is specific to a browser or operating system (OS). Use the DFP Query Tool to determine whether a creative had issues rendering in a certain environment and not another.

Let's say you want to find out total impressions one browser or operating system type received versus another, follow these steps:

  1. Create a new query.
  2. In the Filters section,
    1. From the first drop-down, select Targeting.
    2. From the second drop-down, choose contains.
    3. In the 'contains' field, enter Browser=. To run a report about the OS, use OperatingSystem= .

      To get a complete breakout of impressions by each mobile version of Android and iOS, use the filter OperatingSystemVersion=.

  3. Under the ‘Platform’ dimension, select Targeting.
  4. Include your desired metrics, in this case, Total Impressions.
  5. Save the query and run the report.
