Create Queued Report

This endpoint makes a request in the Kevel database for the criteria passed in the parameters, and then returns a GUID that can be used to pull the finished report. Criteria can be specified for the report using an object titled "criteria". Report IDs will persist for 30 days.

What You Can Group & Filter By

TypePropertyGroup By (GroupBy)Filter By (Parameters)Exclude Filter By (ExcludeParameters)
Datehour,day, week, monthYesNoNo
PerformancebrandId, campaignId, optionId, creativeId, publisherAccountId,modelName, brandName, advertisedOs , osMajorVersion, osMinorVersion, browser, browserMajorVersion, browserMinorVersion, formFactor, keyword(matching keywords)YesYesYes
InventorysiteId,zoneId, adTypeId,countryCode,
metroCode,regionCode, city,keyword*(request keywords)



When grouping/filtering by region, be sure to also group/filter by countryCode.

When Keyword is used in inventory reports only Selections will be returned in the results, not ADRs.

Important Troubleshooting Notes

  1. Reports that are grouped by Keyword AND Country or Metro AND include a longer than 31 day time span are too large to be queued.

  2. Keywords can be a performance or inventory type dimension.

    1. When Keyword is sent as the only GroupBy property or when combined with other Inventory GroupBy properties, you will get Request Keywords. Request Keywords include ALL keywords values that were sent in the decision request.
    2. When Keyword is sent in combination with any Performance GroupBy property you will get Matching Keywords. Matching Keywords include ONLY keywords from the decision request that were used to match the selected Ad, found at the Flight or Ad level.
  3. If the dates are in ISO 8601 format, it is possible to use these params instead. StartDateISO overrides StartDate if different.

  4. If the GroupBy optionId is chosen, the report will also be grouped by RateTypeId. This is to meant to break out data on separate lines if the flight has changed RateType during the time period.

  5. FlightId will be returned as OptionId in the report.

  6. Reports that GroupBy hour cannot use a time frame longer than 35 days from the present.

  7. Reports may not be queued that groups by or filters by both Keywords and Region or City.

  8. Grouping by any "device" dimensions (modelName, brandName, advertisedOs,osMajorVersion, osMinorVersion, browser, browserMajorVersion, browserMinorVersion, formFactor) does not work for requests. In other words, it is limited to performance reports and is currently not supported for inventory reports. Additionally, osMajorVersion, and osMinorVersion only have data from Oct 1, 2022, querying these dimensions prior to that date will return an error message.

  9. For device reporting to be accurate, the client's UA needs to be passed through to Kevel via the User-Agent header if the customer is proxying events through their server. Failure to do so might cause inconsistent attribution, resulting in e.g. clicks without impressions, as one is not attributed to the same device.

  10. Ad Decision Request, Selection Request totals are only available for Inventory Type GroupBy properties, and only in the default TimeZone (UTC).

  11. A report becomes a performance type report as soon as any Performance GroupBy property is included.

  12. To get total counts for your selected time range, do not include a Date property type Group By.

Time Zones

  1. Reports can be generated in various Time Zones by including "TimeZone" as a body param in the request body.
  2. Supported values can be found here
  3. Default value is UTC
  4. Including a non-default Time Zone means that you will not get request metrics (Ad Decision Requests, Selection Requests, Fill Rate, etc.) in your results.
