Appcues API

Welcome! You are reading the documentation for the Appcues Public API, version 2.32.0+d9a0db9c.

The Appcues Public API is a web API that offers access to functions within the Appcues platform. Each function is identified using an HTTP method and a URL. All API requests and responses are encoded as JSON by default. Most API endpoints also support CSV input and output.

Most URLs supported by this API include an Appcues account ID as part of the URL path. You can find your account ID on your Studio.appcues.com account page.

Connecting

# Curl is pre-installed on Mac OS X and most Linux systems.
# Binaries for many platforms are available on http://curl.se/.

The base URL for the Appcues API is: https://api.appcues.com.

The Appcues API uses the encrypted HTTPS protocol, and does not respond to unencrypted HTTP requests.

In this documentation, we will provide examples using the popular Curl command-line HTTP client.

If you would like to use the Postman API client, the Appcues Public API is available as a Postman collection here:

Run in Postman

Authentication

# Curl uses the -u flag to support HTTP Basic Auth. For example:
curl https://api.appcues.com/v2/... \
  -u API_KEY:API_SECRET

All requests to the Appcues API V2 must be authenticated using an API key and secret.

API keys and secrets can be created and managed in your settings on studio.appcues.com.

The key and secret must be attached to each request using the HTTP Basic Auth standard, summarized here:

Most HTTP clients (such as Curl, in our examples) offer a feature to simplify this procedure.

Requests

# Curl uses the -H flag to add a header to a request, and -d to add a body.
# Here is an example JSON request:
curl https://api.appcues.com/v2/... \
  -u API_KEY:API_SECRET \
  -H 'Content-type: application/json' \
  -d '{ ... }'

Each request that pushes data to this API requires the appropriate Content-type request header. Accepted values for this header are as follows:

application/json
Request body is a single JSON-encoded object.
application/ndjson
Request body consists of Newline-Delimited JSON, i.e. one JSON-encoded object per line.
text/csv
Request body consists of a CSV-encoded document starting with a line of headers.
multipart/mixed
Request body consists of an uploaded file in CSV or Newline-Delimited JSON format.

In all input formats, extra whitespace (blank lines, indentation, etc) is safely ignored.

Responses

All error (4xx and 5xx) responses adhere to the standard Problem Details format, with the following fields:

{
  "error": true,
  "status": 400,
  "title": "Bad Request",
  "detail": "`widget_id` is required but missing"
}

By default, responses will be provided in JSON format (Content-type: application/json).

To receive a response encoded in CSV format instead of JSON, pass along the appropriate Accept header:

Accept: text/csv

Each response will feature one of the following status codes:

200
Success. The request succeeded.
201
Created. The request succeeded, and resulted in the creation of a new resource.
202
Accepted. The request was accepted, and is being processed offline.
400
Bad Request. The request was malformed or invalid.
401
Unauthorized. Access credentials were missing or invalid.
403
Forbidden. The given credentials do not grant access to the requested resource.
404
Not Found. The given endpoint or resource could not be located in our system.
415
Unsupported Media Type. The content type specified in the Content-type header is not supported by this API.
429
Too Many Requests. Requests from this API key are being throttled due to heavy traffic.
500
Internal Server Error. Something went wrong and it's not your fault.

Flows

The Appcues Public API provides access to your account's flows, supporting read operations and publish/unpublish actions.

This endpoint can be used to add user IDs to a segment. These users will be matched by the segment, in addition to any users previously matched.

If uploading in the NDJSON format, each user ID must be properly enclosed in double-quotes.

If uploading in CSV format, the header line is optional, but if present, it must read user_id or userId.

It is harmless to add the same user ID(s) to a segment multiple times.

It may take a few minutes for the updates to take effect. Responses contain a job_url field that can be queried to view the status of the updates.

This endpoint removes user IDs that were previously added to a segment via the add_user_ids endpoint described above.

If uploading in NDJSON format, each user ID must be properly enclosed in double-quotes.

If uploading in CSV format, the header line is optional, but if present, it must read user_id or userId.

It is harmless to add the remove user ID(s) from a segment multiple times.

It may take a few minutes for the updates to take effect. Responses contain a job_url field that can be queried to view the status of the updates.

Importing Data in Bulk

This API has provisions for uploading user profile updates and event data, both in bulk or individually. The data is made available for use in flow targeting, personalization, and insights inside the Appcues platform.

The endpoints described in this section are for adding data in bulk, asynchronously. For adding data synchronously, one user profile update or event at a time, please use the endpoints to update a user profile and track a user event in the API's End Users section.

The below updates are performed asynchronously (offline), so your API call returns before the updates are finished being applied. The endpoints return a 202 Accepted response instead of 200 OK upon success. Responses contain a job_url that can be queried to check if the data has been enqueued successfully for later processing or if an error happened.

This endpoint imports user event data in bulk. Input can be provided in CSV or Newline-Delimited JSON format, either as a traditional POST request (20MB limit per request) or as a file upload (200MB limit per file).

Each row requires a user_id, userId, group_id or groupId field, a name field carrying the event name, and a timestamp field bearing the ISO 8601-formatted datetime of the event. All other fields in the row are treated as event attributes. (Event attributes can be passed in a attributes key also, as shown in the first Curl example.)

HTTP Request

POST https://api.appcues.com/v2/accounts/{account_id}/import/events

URL Parameters

Parameter Description
account_id Appcues account ID

Body Parameters

Each event in the import must adhere to this specification:

Parameter Type Description
user_id string Either User ID or Group ID are Required. User ID of end user
group_id string Either User ID or Group ID are Required. Group ID
name string Required. Event name
timestamp string Required. Event timestamp in ISO 8601 format
attributes object Freeform key/value data about the event

Response

Field Type Description
status number 202
title string Accepted
job_id string Job ID
job_url string Job URL

Exporting Data in Bulk

The Appcues Public API allows you to export CSV- or JSON-formatted batches of user events matching a given timeframe and conditions.

The exports are prepared offline (asynchronously), and upon completion, a link to the export is sent via email.

Like other offline jobs in this API, the response will contain a job_url field that can be queried for progress updates.

Export Bulk Event Data

    "end_time": "2021-08-18",
    "time_zone": "-04:00"

This endpoint initiates an asynchronous export of event data matching the given conditions, start_time, and end_time (optional).

Set the format parameter to either "json" or "csv" to specify output encoding.

Other parameters are described below.

In JSON-encoded exports, there are four top-level fields in each event object: name, timestamp, user_id, and attributes, which is an object with all other data pertaining to the event.

In CSV-encoded exports, the attributes field has been flattened into many shallow columns. For example, the flowId field in the event's attributes object will be in a column entitled attributes.flowId.

Upon completion, a link to the exported data will be sent via email to the address(es) in the email parameter. This is a secure link that expires in one week.

Best Practices

Use a limited export time range so that the asynchronous export limit of 10 million events per request is not hit. Appcues generally recommends keeping the time range to less than one month.

Use the condition ["name", "not in", ["appcues:page_view", "appcues:profile_update"]] to exclude those events unless they are specifically needed. These events are typically the most numerous and excluding them will increase the possible export time range without hitting the 10 million event limit.

Ensure the provided email address(es) are valid. Many exports are lost to incorrect email addresses.

HTTP Request

POST https://api.appcues.com/v2/accounts/ACCOUNT_ID/export/events

URL Parameters

Parameter Description
account_id Appcues account ID

Body Parameters

Parameter Type Description
email string or array of strings Required. Email address(es) to which results should be sent
format string Required. "csv" or "json"
conditions array of arrays Required. Conditions that determine which events are exported. See below.
start_time string or number Required. Beginning of time range for export, in ISO 8601 format (string) or milliseconds since 1970 (number)
end_time string or number End of time range for export, in ISO 8601 format (string) or milliseconds since 1970 (number)
time_zone string or number Time zone for export timestamps, in +HH:MM/-HH:MM format (string) or minutes offset from UTC (number)
limit number Maximum number of events to export. No more than 10 million events can be exported in a single export.
offset number Number of rows to skip in the export results. Use offset and limit together if you require paginated results.

Conditions

Example conditions:

Export all events for a certain flow:

[
  ["flow_id", "==", "3c2105c4-1e23-4be3-90a7-b17ff504c986"]
]

Export all events for a certain flow or a certain checklist:

[
  [
    "or",
    ["checklist_id", "==", "df31e2c7-7ac7-4eda-bcee-efceb72913fa"],
    ["flow_id", "==", "3c2105c4-1e23-4be3-90a7-b17ff504c986"]
  ]
]

Export all Appcues events for users in a certain segment:

[
  ["user_segment_id", "==", "155500d3-8f28-41ca-be2f-6b3f2a859ce7"],
  ["name", "like", "appcues%"]

[
  ["name", "like", "appcues:%"]
]

Export Appcues Click-to-Track events:

[
  ["name", "like", "appcues_custom:%"]
]

Export all types of events:

[]

The conditions field contains a specification of the conditions that each event must match in order to be included in the export. It's an array of arrays that look like this:

[field, operator, value]

or

[conjunction, conditions1, conditions2, ...]

If there are multiple items in the top-level conditions array, each condition must pass (i.e., the conditions are joined with an implicit "and".

Fields

The following fields are able to appear in conditions:

All events

Flows

Checklists

NPS

Operators

Here are the operators that are supported in export requests:

Conjunctions

The following conjunction conditions are accepted:
