Differences between Standalone and Marketing Suite: API

August 27, 2018

Piwik PRO Analytics came out equipped with an extensive base of API methods allowing the user to completely control their Piwik PRO instance via API, without any need of using the user interface. Due to some structural changes of Piwik PRO Marketing Suite, some adjustments have also been done to the API. They include:

User Manager – all of the user manager methods have been removed due to the fact that Piwik PRO Marketing Suite users are shared between all of the suite assets. Because of that, a new user API has been introduced. You can learn more about it here: New Users API

Website Manager – similarly to the User Manager methods this one has also been removed due to the fact that they are shared between all Piwik PRO Marketing Suite components. Instead a new API has been added Apps API. Please note that Websites are now called apps in the API, however they still work the same.

Unfortunately, since the new API uses a different mechanism its calls cannot be combined with each other (i.e as a bulk request).

Additionally, following API modules have also been removed from the Piwik PRO Marketing Suite completely, as their functionalities no longer exist in Piwik PRO Marketing Suite:

  • CloudAdmin
  • ExampleAPI
  • ExamplePlugin
  • Feedback
  • Integration
  • PlatformsReport
  • RawDataExporter
  • TrafficGenerator
  • UserGroups
  • WhiteLabel
