Azure: Export Audiences (Blob Storage) JSON
Export your Lytics audiences to Azure Blob Storage as newline JSON files, which can then be imported into other systems for improved segmentation and targeting.
- Implementation Type: Server-side.
- Type: REST API.
- Frequency: Batch one-time or continuous update.
- Resulting Data: User profile data written to a JSON format.
This integration uses the Azure Blob Service REST API to upload data to Azure Blob Storage. Each run of the job will proceed as follows:
- Create Blob in the Container selected during configuration.
- Scan through the users in the selected audience. Filter user fields based on the export configuration and write to the created Blob.
- If the job is configured to be continuously updated, any users that enter the audience will be exported. Select the One-time Export checkbox if you want to run it only once.
The fields exported to the Blob will depend on the User Fields option in the job configuration described below. Any user field in your Lytics account may be available for export.
Follow these steps to set up and configure an export of user profiles to Azure Blob Storage in the Lytics platform. If you are new to creating jobs in Lytics, see the Jobs Dashboard documentation for more information.
