I use this pattern.
?module=API&method=Goals.getItemsName &idSite=1 &period=day &date=today &format=JSON &token_auth=xxxxxx &segment=ProductCategory==electronic
See the bold text, I try to use the segment to filter ProductCategory in ecomerce but fail.
Thanks a lot.
yes this would be really helpful, to have the ecommerce product catgeorie in segment editor, since one can not always use elements from url to identify product's category because in some systems like Magento there are several urls for same product:
but with this code one could set "category 1" directly to the product
no matter which url is used to show it:
// all parameters are optional, but we recommend to set at minimum productSKU and productName
"9780786706211", // (required) SKU: Product unique identifier
"Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage", // (optional) Product name
"Adventure Books", // (optional) Product category, or array of up to 5 categories
20.11 // (optional) Product Price as displayed on the page
e.g. standard piwik-magento connection
already includes this code
just opened a more general version of this ticket:
segment editor: make segments from direct values of ecommerce tracking #9172
While implementing segmentation by Product category we should also implement:
same data should be also accessible for goal definition, see https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/9756
@mattab Is there a way to speed this one up. I was blown away when I realized this is not already a feature, I had given it for granted. Maybe we could sponsor it? Where should I get in touch at?
@hpvd Actually we're a SaaS, so we're dealing with a whole range of different tracking needs (e.g. renewals), which piwik doesn't have a place for. I think that piwik should have more attention toward that segment of piwik users who are running a business (e-commerce and SaaS in particular), as these are the customers more likely to opt for a piwik pro subscription or to fund piwik in general (cc @mattab). Since we're going out of topic, though, I would just be happy to understand if there is a way for our company to speed up development of this feature, which seems honestly basic compared to the whole refactor of E-commerce tracking, and not finding it was a bad surprise.

yes, we think the same way - would be good chance for piwik.
see my comment:
sadly ecommerce seems not to be on the goals list at all:
although when filtering issues by "ecommerce" there are - 75 open issues - from 18 different authors..
hmm what to do when liking piwik but working in ecommerce???

Agreed @hpvd - Piwik is used a lot by Ecommerce websites and we could make many improvements to Ecommerce tracking and reporting in general. If any of you has resources to sponsor or improve Piwik ecommerce reporting, please get in touch with the team at http://piwik.org/contact/ - some team members will be able to improve / develop new Piwik ecommerce capabilities.

@Facens the team of core Piwik engineers have just launched our Custom Development services. Contact us here: https://piwik.org/development/ - we certainly would be happy to work on this feature and release it in the Piwik open platform! :+1:
