Airship: Export Audiences

Export your Lytics audiences to Airship to use Lytics-powered insights in your mobile campaigns. Use your advanced data science driven audiences in Lytics as your push targets in Airship.

Integration Details

  • Implementation Type: Server-side.
  • Implementation Technique: REST API with file based transfer.
  • Frequency: One-time batch export, or continuous hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly exports where the time of day can be configured.
  • Resulting Data: A new or existing list in Airship populated with channel identifiers from Lytics users.

This integration utilizes the Airship APIs to create a static list of users. Users without an email channel will be registered and associated with a named user ID if available. Once the user initiates an export, the job will:

  1. On the first run, the export will create a static list in Airship. If an existing list was selected during configuration, this step is skipped.
  2. Scan through the users in the Lytics audience.
  3. For any users with an email address, but no email channel ID, register the email address with Airship.
  4. Associate newly created email channel ID with the named user ID.
  5. Build a CSV containing user channel identifier types and identifiers.
  6. Update the list in Airship with the user CSV.

Note: Large audiences may take longer than an hour to export.


The following fields can be mapped for export as part of the audience export to Airship.
