Parameters

Parameter name Value Description
Path parameters
accountId string Account ID to retrieve experiments for.
profileId string View (Profile) ID to retrieve experiments for.
webPropertyId string Web property ID to retrieve experiments for.
Optional query parameters
max-results integer The maximum number of experiments to include in this response.
start-index integer An index of the first experiment to retrieve. Use this parameter as a pagination mechanism along with the max-results parameter.

Authorization

This request requires authorization with at least one of the following scopes (read more about authentication and authorization).

Scope
https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics
https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics.edit

Response

If successful, this method returns a response body with the following structure:

{
  "kind": "analytics#experiments",
  "username": string,
  "totalResults": integer,
  "startIndex": integer,
  "itemsPerPage": integer,
  "previousLink": string,
  "nextLink": string,
  "items": [
    management.experiments Resource
  ]
}
Property name Value Description Notes
kind string Collection type.
username string Email ID of the authenticated user
totalResults integer The total number of results for the query, regardless of the number of resources in the result.
startIndex integer The starting index of the resources, which is 1 by default or otherwise specified by the start-index query parameter.
itemsPerPage integer The maximum number of resources the response can contain, regardless of the actual number of resources returned. Its value ranges from 1 to 1000 with a value of 1000 by default, or otherwise specified by the max-results query parameter.
items[] list A list of experiments.
