Reporting API Reference


Getting started

To get more insights before diving into the Reporting API reference, please read the Getting started article to see how to authenticate, interact with the API and its limitations.

Introduction

The Reporting API allows you to monitor the performance of your videos with flexibility and granularity. It accepts metrics – such as the number of views or the estimated earnings – that can be scaled down using dimensions and filters for more precise results.

MetricsMeasurements related to activity
DimensionsOrganize metrics across common criteria
FiltersScope down the result set
ProductTargets a specific product usage. On Dailymotion, data is collected and attributed against three different kinds of product usage: data generated on your content, on your embeds or on your claims.
Note:

dimensions, metrics, filters and products are case sensitive and must be used as shown in the tables.

AD_ERROR_READABLEAd errors returned by our advertising system for the selected metric
AD_ERROR_CODEAd error code returned by our advertising system for the selected metric
BUYERPotential and actual buyers of the inventory
BUYER_TYPEType of buyer of the inventory. Usually either P1 or Dailymotion
ACTIONAction defines how a view or inventory was generated by clarifying the stakeholders involved

Example my content played on other properties shows that the ad inventory was generated because one of my content was being played on another account’s website or application
AD_FORMATType of ad being displayed. Usually one of the following:
– instream: a video ad 
– display_preroll: a static image ad
PLAYER_IDID(s) of the player(s) used to play your content.
The ID(s) listed can be yours or from third parties.
PLAYER_TITLETitle(s) of the player(s) used to play your content.
The title(s) listed can be yours or from third parties.
PLAYLIST_IDID(s) of the playlist(s) used to play your content.
The ID(s) listed can be yours or from third parties.
PLAYLIST_TITLETitle(s) of the playlist(s) used to play your content.
The title(s) listed can be yours or from third parties.
CONTENT_TAGBreakdown the data by each tag specified on content.

Note that more than one tag can be added to a single content : when using this dimension the returned metrics (data) may overlap and cannot be summed up. 

Example: 
Video A has tags (Tag 1, Tag 2) and has accumulated 10 views on March 5, 2022
 
Generating a report for this date might result in the following:
 
DAY, VIDEO TITLE, CONTENT_TAG, VIEWS
2022-03-05, Video A, Tag 1, 10
2022-03-05, Video A, Tag 2, 10
 
Since Video A is using both Tag 1 and Tag 2,
the views column here cannot be summed as it would result in 20 views which is not the total number of views.
CONTENT_TAG_LISTComma separated list of tags specified on content
