comScore Connector

Version 17

 

Intro

comScore is an Internet analytics company providing marketing data and analytics to many of the world's largest enterprises, agencies, and publishers. You can use Domo's comScore connector to pull data about data download requests, event filters, funnels, and report items. For information about the comScore API, see http://dax-files.comscore.com/digitalanalytix/US/onecall_api/help.html#datadownloadrequest.

This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the comScore connector user interface. For general information about adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

  • The username of your comScore account.

  • The password of your comScore account.

Connecting to Your comScore Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the comScore connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your comScore account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:

Duration 

Specify whether the data in this report is for a single date or a range of dates.

Report Date 

Specify whether the data is for a specific or relative date. Choose Relative if you always want the report to retrieve data for a given number of days back (which you specify in Days Back) from the current date. For example, if you enter 5 for Days Back and set the DataSet to update daily, each new day the report will update to show information for the date 5 days in the past.   

Select Specific Date 

Select the date you want to retrieve data for.  

Days Back 

Enter the number of days back from the current date that will be presented in the report. 

Start Date 

Specify whether the first date in your date range is a specific or relative date. Choose Relative if you always want the report to retrieve data for a given number of days back (which you specify in Days Back to Start From) from the current date. If you choose Relative here, you should also choose Relative for End Date and specify a value for Date Back to End At

For example, if you enter 10 for Days Back to Start From and 5 for Days Back to End At and you set the DataSet to update daily, each new day the report will update to show information for 5 to 10 days in the past.    

End Date

Choose Relative if you always want the report to retrieve data for a given number of days back (which you specify in Days Back to End At) from the current date. If you choose Relative here, you should also choose Relative for Start Date and specify a value for Date Back to Start From

For example, if you enter 10 for Days Back to Start From and 5 for Days Back to End At and you set the DataSet to update daily, each new day the report will update to show information for 5 to 10 days in the past.     

Select Specific Start Date 

Select the first date in your date range.  

Select Specific End Date 

Select the last date in your date range.
