Getting Started with the Adobe Analytics 2.0 API with Python

Adobe Analytics 2.0 Api For Beginners 953x498

Curious about what you can do with the Adobe Analytics 2.0 API, but not sure where to start? Here’s a simple way to get started. This started project will create a JSON Web Token (JWT), then request an access token that is needed for the 2.0 API. From there you will be able to get calculated metrics, request reports, and do a lot more programmatically.

Step 1: Install Anaconda

Anaconda contains Jupyter Notebook which we will use to run our code interactively and as a bonus comes bundled with Pandas to handle data types.

Download and install Anaconda here https://www.anaconda.com/

The starter project consists of the Jupyter Notebook and a simple adobe_helper.py package to get you started. The helper package handles creating the JWT and exchanging that for an access token. It also has a function to interact with the Discover Me API and to get calculated metrics.

This is only a started project, you will need to make modifications to fit your needs. Have fun!
