What options do I have for visualizing my Flurry data?

Create data visualizations based on pre-built options or build your own. The choice is yours!

Pre-built by Klipfolio

Take advantage of our pre-built data sources to gather the data most meaningful to you.

  • Flurry pre-built data sources: Data sources provide the foundation for Klip building, so we suggest you create a data source as a first step (before building Klips and adding them to your dashboard). Our pre-built data sources focus on the most sought-after {SERVICE NAME} data and are found on the Service Connectors page, available from this link or from your list of data sources. When you select a service connector from this page, the data source for that service is automatically added.

Custom-built by you

Taking the time to learn how to create your own data sources and Klips unlocks your data and enables you to control, manipulate, and transform it, leading you to unprecedented insights into your business.

  • Custom data sources: When you create a custom data source, you can either use the pre-built data source as a starting point from which to write your own query or you can write your own queries from the ground up and build a data source from scratch. You create custom-built data sources in the Service Connectors page, accessible from this link or from your list of data sources.
  • Custom Klips: Using our Klip Editor, you can construct and manipulate your data, including integrating multiple data sources, to produce unique, custom-built data visualizations. You create custom Klips from either your list of Klips or your Dashboard.

Regardless of whether you choose pre-built, custom-built, or a combination of both, before you can start building Klips and dashboards you need to connect to Flurry data in Klipfolio.

How do I find my Flurry data in Klipfolio?

To connect your Flurry data to Klipfolio, you will need your Access Token.

To get the right data from Flurry, you use your Flurry Access Token in the queries provided by Klipfolio or in your own query when building data sources.

How do I find my Flurry Access Token?

To find your Flurry token:

  1. Log in to Flurry.
  2. Click Admin (wrench icon) in the left navigation bar.
  3. Select Manage > Users.
  4. Click + Programmatic User and enter your credentials to authenticate
  5. Click Login.
  6. Either accept the default Programmatic Account Name or, optionally, create your own.
  7. Click Create Account.
  8. Copy your Access Token into Klipfolio.

    Note: While you can view your programmatic account information under Manage Users at any time, your Access Token is only displayed once. If you forget your Access Token, you may need to regenerate it. From the Manage Users page, click the pencil icon to navigate to the Assign Feature for Programmatic Account page. Click Regenerate Token and copy the new token.

How do I add a Flurry pre-built data source?

To add a Flurry pre-built data source:

  1. Navigate to the Service Connectors page in Klipfolio and choose Flurry from the list.
  2. Select a pre-built data source from the left section of the Pick a Data Request page.
  3. Enter your Flurry access.
  4. Click Submit or, if you want to modify the pre-built data request, click Switch to Custom settings.
    Note: If you switch back to the Basic settings page after making changes in the Custom settings page, your changes will not be saved.

If you clicked Switch to Custom settings:

  1. On the Configure Data Source page, modify the Query URL to get the data you want. You can use the existing information in the Query URL text box as a base. It was auto-filled based on the pre-built data source you selected on the Pick a Data Request page.
  2. Click Submit.

Note: In addition to your unmodelled data source, you can create a modelled version of your data source at this stage. To create a modelled data source, ensure that the checkbox next to Model this data source is selected before clicking Continue.

How do I create a Flurry custom-built data source?

To create a Flurry custom-built data source:

  1. Navigate to the Service Connectors page in Klipfolio and choose Flurry from the list.
  2. On the Pick a Data Request page, click Create a custom Flurry data source.
  3. Edit the Query URL to return the data you need. Refer to the Flurry API documentation for details.
  4. At Query Parameters, under Value, replace <yourAPIAccessToken> with your Access Token.
  5. Click Submit.

Note: In addition to your unmodelled data source, you can create a modelled version of your data source at this stage. To create a modelled data source, ensure that the checkbox next to Model this data source is selected before clicking Continue.

How do I create a Flurry data source from scratch?

You can choose to build a data source from scratch. Klipfolio connects to hundreds of services in the cloud that have a REST API. If you take the time to learn your service’s API to create queries for the data you want, your possibilities are endless. Here’s a quick overview video on APIs and Klipfolio:

Klipfolio API's 101

If you need assistance using APIs, enlist a data analyst or developer.

Use the Flurry API Console to build and test your queries before you use them to bring data into Klipfolio.

Refer to the Flurry API documentation to discover more data requests.

When you are happy with your query, click Submit, and then save and name your new data source. You're now ready to use it to build a Flurry Klip.

See the reference table below for API related information and sample queries.

Response Format CSV

API Limits and Notes

The maximum interval supported is 90 days in one single request. To gather data for longer periods, you must submit multiple queries. For example, to get data for the last 180 days, you would submit one query for data from 180 to 90 days ago and a second query for data from 89 days ago to today.

Date Format

Example date format:

YYYY-MM-DD

Sample Queries

Get sessions for this year:

GET https://api-metrics.flurry.com/public/v1/data/appUsage/month/app?metrics=sessions&dateTime={date.startOfYear.format('yyyy-MM')}/{date.addMonths(1).startOfMonth.format('yyyy-MM')}&format=csv Authorization: Bearer <yourAPIAccessToken>}

Get average time per session for this year:

GET https://api-metrics.flurry.com/public/v1/data/appUsage/month/app?metrics=averageTimePerSession&dateTime={date.startOfYear.format('yyyy-MM')}/{date.addMonths(1).startOfMonth.format('yyyy-MM')}&format=csv Authorization: Bearer <yourAPIAccessToken>

How do I create a Flurry custom Klip?

You create custom Klips from either your list of Klips or your Dashboard. You choose a data visualization format, for example, a pie chart, gauge, or table, and decide whether you want to use an existing data source or create a new one. In the Klip Editor, there are limitless opportunities to modify, relate, and display your data. See the following related articles for more information and get building!
