Access Optimizely Experimentation Event Export data

  • Optimizely Full Stack (Legacy)

Optimizely Experimentation relies on event data obtained through your experiments to calculate results. These include:

  • Decision events – Events fired when Optimizely Experimentation "decides" that a visitor is bucketed into a certain experiment and variation pair.
  • Conversion events – Events fired when a visitor "converts" to a desirable action, such as a click, page view, or purchase.

This data travels through Optimizely Experimentation's data export pipeline, which gives you private and secure access to your Optimizely Experimentation events on the cloud. Experimentation Events Export contains the events Optimizely Experimentation has received from you. This enables data analysts and data scientists to store, analyze, combine, and visualize the data as they see fit. For information, review the Data Specification article

The export process gives developers access to their data through Amazon S3. Amazon S3's cloud-based storage will require some development on your end to set up automatic data ingestion or export one-off data. Optimizely Experimentation lets you access your data through the Optimizely Authentication API or through the Optimizely Experimentation oevents CLI.

You can learn more about exporting your data in the Get Started with Experimentation Events Export developer documentation.
