We as an agency would love to have an experiment data API so that we can integrate Optimizely experiments with all of our other reporting data. This would allow us to show clients the impact of CRO in many more ways

Thanks for the suggestion!  Several of our customers have requested getting access to experiment data through an API.  We are actively working on expanding our APIs and this is on the roadmap.


If you have specific suggestions on what you would want from this API, I would love to hear them.

I agree, this would be extremely useful to our reporting. How can we be notified of it's release?

Hi John, 


First and foremost we'd like to be able to get data on the performance of experiment variations via an API. Traffic to each variation, conversion rates, revenue per visitor etc. Ideally we would be able to set date ranges to specify the period to extract and also be able to specify how it's segmented (daily, weekly, monthly) etc. 


I know you guys are working on annotations for experiments as well, and it would be great to be able to extract these also so that it's easier to add to experiment timelines. 


Thanks Smiley Happy

@Duncan and @jeffblettner 

Our REST API now supports getting results from experiments.  Please see the documentation http://developers.optimizely.com/rest/#get-results and the code sample at http://developers.optimizely.com/samples/#results.


If you have any questions or suggestions, please email us at developers@optimizely.com.
