Analytics data

Description

Within a Code Node you can modify certain parts of the analytics data to get more control of what exactly is written to analytics.

You can access the analytics data in a code node by using the key analyticsdata. For example:

analyticsdata.intent = "test";

Analytics fields

The following fields can be overwritten in a Code Node:

Field Description Type
intent The intent that will be written to analytics. You can for instance modify this field to store the intent that was found in an executed Flow in analytics String
intentFlow The Flow parent ID of the Flow where the intent was found String
intentScore The score of the intent that was found Number
inputText The input text. String
inputData The input data object. {"key":"value"}
state The State the Flow is currently in String
slots The slots that were found in the user's input Object
completedGoals A list of goals the user has completed List of Strings
understood Whether the input was understood Boolean
custom1 A custom field that can be set to any string value during Flow execution. Defaults to null String
custom2 A custom field that can be set to any string value during Flow execution. Defaults to null String
custom3 A custom field that can be set to any string value during Flow execution. Defaults to null String

Working with the custom fields

The custom fields are used to store any custom data into analytics. This can be any string value that has a maximum length of 512 characters. If you want to store more complex data, you can store a stringified object as the value:

const customData = {
  key: "value"
};

analyticsdata.custom1 = "userFocusGroup: focusGroup1";
analyticsdata.custom2 = JSON.stringify(customData);
Max length of custom fields

You can store a maximum of 512 characters as the value for each of the custom fields

Analytics data life span

The analyticsdata object is generated for each Flow Execution. This means that any data you store in the analyticsdata object (e.g. a custom field) will only be stored in analytics for this Flow Execution. On the next Flow Execution, there will be a new analyticsdata object with a new intent etc.
