Attribute Type Description
Authorization string Required. Use Bearer <your-access-token> where <your-access-token> is the access token you requested from the Galaxy Store authentication server

content-type string Required. Must be application/json

api_server_url string Required by sellerMetric. See Get cookie values for more information on how to obtain this value.

auth_server_url string Required by sellerMetric. See Get cookie values for more information on how to obtain this value.

getDailyMetric boolean Whether or not to provide daily trend value for each metric.

  • true: Provide the percentage change of the metric between the specified time periods.
  • false: Do not provide trend data.

getBreakdownsByFilter boolean Whether or not to provide statistics broken down by country or device for each metric.

  • true: Provide statistics based on the filters specified in the filters[{country}, {device}] array attribute.
  • false: Provide summary data only.

noContentMetadata boolean Whether or not to provide content metadata.

  • true: Do not include content metadata.
