Queries all distinct values of an attribute and counts the recipients for each value in Optimizely Campaign.



Using this method with the wrong argument (e.g., no threshold) can lead to huge amount of data returned.

Type: String[ ]


sessionIdStringID of the session
recipientListIdlongID of the recipient list
recipientFilterIdlong(optional) ID of the target group

If the value is greater than 0, only recipients that match the target group with this ID are returned.
attributeNameStringField name of the field (e.g., firstname, lastname etc.) that is to be queried for distinct values
thresholdintNumber of characters that are examined

Example: With a threshold of 4, the values Test-A and Test-B will be summed up to Test.

Return values

The first index is the value, the second one is the count.

Example: result[0]=="Value 1", result[1]=="123", result[2]=="Value 2", result[3]=="678"



A maximum of 10,000 values is returned.
