Reporting dimensions (OD)

Here you'll find a list of the dimensions available for use with the various reports dashboards for Object Delivery (OD).

Use of these dimensions in the Media Delivery Reports UI

All of the widgets revealed in a report's tab use one or more of these dimensions by default. However, some of the widgets let you view custom data via the Analyze data () functionality, and you can add or remove dimensions. See Analyze data shown in a report for full details.

Use of these dimensions in the Media Delivery Reports API

A dimension's name can differ slightly between the Media Delivery Reports UI and the Media Delivery Reports API v1. When applicable, both values are listed here. You can also run the applicable "List Object Delivery data stores" operation in the API, and do the following:

  1. Review the response output and locate the data store that represents the type of report data you want.
  2. From that data store, store the id value for the dimensions (and metrics) you want to use.
  3. Use these dimension (and metric) id values in the applicable "Get Object Store data" operation to view report data.
Note: Some dimensions use the same name and gather similar data, but they're tied to specific functionality. Review the description for each and make sure you're using the proper API ID for the dimension you want.
