Columns

This article documents core columns available in the HTTP API. Additional columns may become available through Integrations.

Note

Each column listed in this document defines a Scope attribute. If you request a query that includes at least one column which requires event scope, the entire query will be calculated using events, instead of sessions. This might distort some custom metrics such as averages of a session dimension (e.g. average session time).

Metrics

The table below lists core metrics that may be used in queries. Additional metrics may be created using dimension transformations.
