Has anybody found/used a parameter for segment ID.
Let me try and explain; when a segment is saved with a name and operator conditions, then can that same segment be referenced via the API, as an example, &segmentid=X
I can see that when an API request is made instead of a User action within the UI, if the segment is the same then Matomo does recognise the match and will pick up pre-processed data if that segment, or by config, is set to pre-process that segment during archive.
But what if I want to add a search or additional operators along with the same API that previously matched the existing segment.
Does Matomo recognise the partial match and use the pre-processed and already segmented data or simply start a completely new custom segment request without reusing archived data?
Custom segment via API:
Custom segment using pre-processes saved segment as start: &segmentid=5;referrerKeyword==analytics
The example above feels like this would take advantage of pre-processing, less overhead on live requests and reduce the request string which can help when using ETL programs with character limits.
Hopefully I have explained enough for anyone reading to understand.
Any advice or opposition theories would be welcome too. If this doesn’t currently exisit, I feel this would be a good feature to add to the list.
