Ecommerce Items Widget

I am trying to fetch a data table with the following columns:
“item name”, “number of orders containing item”

The items I am tracking are categorised in two different categories and I want only the items with category A.

Currently I am using an APIRequest with the “Goals.getItemsName” method, but that only gets me the number of visitors on the items page and not even the additional categories.

I hope somebody can point me in the right direction!

For this please use Segmentation, and request segment the report data for the categories you need: Segmentation - Compare segments of visitors - Analytics Platform - Matomo

Hope it helps

Thanks for your reply,

but I am not exactly sure how segmentation would work in this case.

I tracked the Ecommerce Item like this:
addEcommerceItem(‘123’, ‘ProductA’, ‘CategoryA’);
addEcommerceItem(‘124’, ‘ProductB’, ‘CategoryB’);

How would I define the segment to access those categories like for example:
$requestArray = array( “segment” => “customEcommerceVariable==CategoryA” );

I looked in the API reference for segmentation and tried “eventCategory” or the customVariables (“customVariableName1” etc.) but those didn’t seem to work… or maybe I’m just doing it wrong :frowning:

Could you please show me an example?

good point! Piwik does not yet support segmenting on Ecommerce categories. Maybe you can request this new feature to segment, in the issue tracker? The Core Team Workflow: DevelopInDepth - Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik Analytics) - Developer Docs - v3
