Fetch popularity analytics data for a live stream

(Available from version 1.11) This operation returns the popularity data for a specific live stream. Popularity data provides insight into how many times your stream is displayed to a possible viewer and how many times it's played.

If you don't send to and from query parameters, the last 7 days worth of data is returned.

Use the include query parameter to specify whether you want to return trend data. See the trend field in the response for information about sample intervals.

query Parameters

The start of the range of time you want to view. Specify YYYY-DD-MMT HH:MM:SSZ where HH is a 24-hour clock in UTC. The range queried doesn't include minutes and seconds. If you include minutes and seconds, Wowza Video rounds up to the nearest hour when it is more than 30 minutes. If it is less than 30 minutes, Wowza Video rounds it down to the nearest hour. The maximum difference between from and to is 30 days. If you set the from query parameter without setting the to query parameter, the data returned will reflect 30 days starting at the from date, or data up to to the current day, whichever is shorter.
