The API/SDK Connector

Check out also our journy.io developers documentation -- https://developers.journy.io/


Overview

The way to connect your website and platform is through our SDKs. We have SDKs for https://releasemanagement.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/journy/pages/2700050448, https://releasemanagement.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/journy/pages/2700017721, , , , .

It only requires 1 single connector (holding 1 single write key) to connect all sources, potentially written in various languages.

And best of all, it is 100% compatible with Segment customer data platform SDKs. Meaning that your development investments can be recuperated, should you choose to make the switch to Segment and use journy.io as a Segment destination.

The SDKs do NOT require any Segment subscription.

This article describes the setup of the "SDK" connector in journy.io connection.

If you are looking at how to integrate your platform with our different SDKs instead, please check following guides:

Here are the details on what you'll find:

  • Write Key: This is a key generated journy.io that makes your implementation unique. You can click on it and copy its value, to then enter it in your code. Since the code goes into secured back-end code, there is no problem to share it...

  • Use proxy domain: Users are often using ad blockers which are blocking data to flow into journy.io. The way to solve it, is to create a CNAME in your DNS and provide us this tracking proxy domain. Ad blockers will assume calls are part of your internal platform, unless users have put limited their ad blocker to static pages. To know more about our SDK proxy, please see Proxy SDK.

  • Ruby: These are the instructions to perform back-end tracking of your platform, on code written in Ruby. For details on how to integrate with your platform, see Ruby

  • .Net / C#: These are the instructions to perform back-end tracking of your platform, on code written in C# / .Net. For details on how to integrate with your platform, see .Net, C#

The instructions for JavaScript, Node.js, PHP, Ruby, Python, .Net, C# include:
