Overview

What is our Raw Export?

Our Raw Export is a product of our data suite, that lets you automate exporting of your games’ raw event data (in JSON format). It means, you can export the player data your games collect in your GameAnalytics account directly into your AWS S3, without the manual work. And you can get this every day.

How does it work?

Raw Export automates ingesting, preprocessing and delivering your data to your S3 bucket. It packages it up once a day and sends it across to your tools. All of that data will be in a compressed file when you get it, containing unchanged raw events, which have all of the event properties and timestamps.

Use cases

Once you’ve got the packaged data, you can process the data with full flexibility using batch or streaming processes. Here’s a couple of things you can then use it for:

  • You can custom analyse the non-aggregated data
  • Or transfer the data into your own internal tools
  • You can combine the GameAnalytics data with your other data sources

And much more...

Custom Event Fields

note

Custom event fields will not be visible in the GameAnalytics tool or other DataSuite products.

For raw export, it is possible to use the custom_fields, which consists of up to 50 key-value pairs. Each pair has to obey the following rules:

  • Keys have a limit of 64 characters.
  • Values (when strings) can max consist of 256 characters.
  • Multiple levels allowed or nested JSON/dicts are not allowed.

Please check the individual SDK documentation pages for information on SDK integration.
