Identify

The identify call is used to uniquely identify a user in FullStory. For more information on the identify call, please refer to the RudderStack API Specification documentation.

A sample identify call looks like the following snippet:

rudderanalytics.identify("userId", userVars); // userVars is a JSON object

The above call is translated to a FullStory identify call as follows:

  • userId is sent as the uid .

  • The JSON objectuserVars is passed on as is.

If the userId is not explicitly provided, the anonymousId of the user is sent as the uid instead.

displayName and email

displayName and email are both optional traits that can passed on to FullStory, which handles them in a special manner. Once these traits are specified in the identify call, they will show up automatically the next time the user list is browsed in FullStory.

A sample identify call using the above traits is as shown:

rudderanalytics.identify("1234", {
displayName: "John Falko",
email: "john@xyz.com",
country: "UK"
});

For more information on the displayName and email traits, please refer to the FullStory documentation.

Any additional traits provided in the identify call, such as country ,will also be passed on to FullStory.

Track

A track call lets you track custom events as they occur in your web application. For more information on the track call, please refer to the RudderStack API Specification documentation.

A sample track call looks like the following snippet:

rudderanalytics.track("Order Completed",{
orderId: "1234567",
price: "567",
currency: "USD"
});

A track call is directly passed on to FullStory via its FS.event method. All the associated properties are also passed on this method.

Page

A page call contains information such as the URL or the name of the web page visited by the user. For more information, please refer to the RudderStack API Specification documentation.

By default, all page calls are sent to FullStory as events. A sample page call looks like the following:

rudderanalytics.page("homepage");

The above call sends an event to FullStory with a name Viewed a Page .It also sends the following properties with the event :

  • name: If provided (homepage in the sample example above)

  • path

  • referrer

  • search

  • title

  • url
