(Deprecated) Insight Reporting API

Note: The Insight Reporting UI and Insight Reporting REST API have now been deprecated and Ooyala will no longer provide any support from 30 March 2018. Reports requiring data prior to 1 March 2016 should be pulled in Insight and stored elsewhere before end of life (30 March 2018). If you are still using Insight Reporting UI or Insight Reporting REST API, you need to migrate to Custom Reporting and Custom Reporting API as soon as possible. Contact your Ooyala representative for details.

The Insight reporting tool is designed to provide fast, reliable access to standard, every day reporting needs. To do this, Pulse pre-aggregates typical combinations of filters, dimensions, and metrics and makes them available to report against directly within the Insight UI or through the Insight API. Insight also allows some additional combinations of filters, dimensions, and metrics to be configured by the publisher as custom templates in the Insight UI.

The following limitations apply to the Insight Reporting API:
  • You can only create Insight reports based on existing Insight report definitions. You cannot create new Insight report definitions.
  • Retrieving an Insight report returns report data without subtotals.
  • You cannot pull an Insight report as Excel or view a report in browser.
  • You cannot share an Insight report.
  • You cannot add an Insight report to a relevant menu, for example the standard "Campaign performance by creative" report cannot be added to the campaign menu.
