SOAP Example 4 (v1): Retrieving data for specified dimensions and metrics

Example 4: Retrieving data for specified dimensions and metrics

(Return to main article: Samples for Java (SOAP) v1)

1. Define a service connection for the ReportService:

 

ReportserviceStub reportStub = new ReportserviceStub();

2. Define a request for the getData() method:

 

ReportserviceStub.GetData dataReq = new ReportserviceStub.GetData();

3. Set up the login/password/profile id request parameters:

 

    dataReq.setLogin("URCHIN_LOGIN");
    dataReq.setPassword("URCHIN_PASSWORD");
    dataReq.setProfileId(PROFILE_ID);

4. Set up the request parameters for the following scenarios:

  • Retrieve a list of visitors and associated metrics for a specific date range:

 

    dataReq.setStartDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2008-01-01"));
    dataReq.setEndDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2009-01-01"));
    dataReq.setDimensions("u:visitor_id");
    dataReq.setMetrics("u:pages,u:visits");
    dataReq.setMaxResults(5);
  • Retrieve data for a specific date range and apply filter

 

      // Define parameters.
    dataReq.setStartDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2008-01-01"));
    dataReq.setEndDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2009-01-01"));
    dataReq.setDimensions("u:utm_source,u:utm_medium,u:utm_campaign");
    dataReq.setMetrics("u:pages,u:visits,u:transactions");
    dataReq.setFilters("u:utm_source=~direct,u:pages>0");
    dataReq.setMaxResults(5);
  • Retrieve visitor list

 

    dataReq.setStartDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2008-01-01"));
    dataReq.setEndDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2009-01-01"));
    dataReq.setDimensions("u:visitor_id");
    dataReq.setMaxResults(5);
  • Retrieve transaction list sorted by id (descending order)

 

      // Define parameters
    dataReq.setStartDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2008-01-01"));
    dataReq.setEndDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2009-01-01"));
    dataReq.setDimensions("u:transaction_id");
    dataReq.setMetrics("u:transactions,u:revenue");
    dataReq.setSort("-u:transactions");
    dataReq.setMaxResults(5);
  • Retrieve totals aggregated by month for specific date range sorted by one metric

 

    dataReq.setStartDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2008-01-01"));
    dataReq.setEndDate(new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd").parse("2009-01-01"));
    dataReq.setDimensions("u:transaction_id");
    dataReq.setMetrics("u:transactions,u:revenue");
    dataReq.setSort("-u:transactions");
    dataReq.setMaxResults(5);

5. Retrieve the data:

 

ReportserviceStub.GetDataResponse dataRsp = reportStub.getData(dataReq);

6. Parse and display the data.

For complete sample code, see the implementations of GetDataWithImplicitStorage(), GetDataFiltered(), GetDataLimited(), GetDataSorted(), and GetDataAggregated() in the AdminService.java file.
