Example Response

  "status": "success",
  "foo": {
    "20161224": 10,
    "20161225": 10,
    "20161226": 10,
    "20161227": 10,
    "20161228": 10,
    "20161229": 10,
    "20161230": 10,

    "201701": 30
  "foobar": {
    "201612": 80,
    "201701": 30

Each trend is referenced by the unique key assigned to it while querying.

daily trend keys are in YYYYMMDD format. weekly trend keys are in YYYYWW format, where WW refers to week of year. monthly trend keys are in YYYYMM format.


The response is a JSON object containing the key status, which might be success, partial, or fail.

If the status is success, there will be a count key with an int value of the count for the specified query. If the status is fail, there will be an error key with a string value and a HTTP status code.

If the status is partial, the query has not finished processing in our system. In the response, you will receive a req_id key with a long int value that you will use to poll for the result. After the query is completed, you will either receive a success response with the count if the query was successful, or a fail response with an error string and a HTTP status code.

Here is an example response for a partial status.

  "req_id": 384649162721759,
  "status": "partial"

After getting the req_id, you will poll the endpoint below and provide the value of req_id as a query parameter.

GET https://in1.api.clevertap.com/1/counts/trends.json?req_id=<your_request_id_here>
