What is Dev Studio?
Dev Studio is a section of the Bloomreach dashboard that is intended for our developer and IT partners. Dev Studio enables you to get more insight into integration touch points including feed, pixel and API.
The Feed section of Dev Studio contains a Feed Status page which lets you know the current processing status of all of your Bloomreach feeds. It lets you quickly answer questions like:
What is the status of the feed processing?
When was the last time my feed was processed?
How long does it take for Bloomreach to process my feed?
During the integration process, the Feed Status page helps you understand if your feed is running, has the correct entities (number of PIDs, SKUs, URLs), and can save turnaround time if there is a feed failure.
Post integration, the Feed Status page can help you track and ensure that your feed is processed as expected.
The Pixel Monitor section of Dev Studio contains pixel monitors which lets you know the health of your Bloomreach pixel integration. There are over 30 different pixel alerts tracking your pixel health across Page Views and Page Events with debugging details on what to do in case a pixel anomaly is found. The Pixel Monitor lets you quickly answer the questions:
Is my site sending the appropriate number of page views and events?
Are my page views and events sending their associated required parameters?
During the Integration, the Pixel Monitor helps you understand if your site is sending the appropriate pixel fires and required information so that you know your development work is complete.
Post integration, the Pixel Monitor can help you track and ensure that your site is behaving as expected.
API Explorer lets you explore Bloomreach APIs interactively and in real time.
It lets you quickly answer the questions:
Are Bloomreach APIs returning expected results?
Are my API calls setup correctly?
During the integration, API Explorer helps you go through examples of what the API request should look like given specific parameter selections as well as understand if your feed is setup correctly to ensure expected results from Bloomreach APIs.
Post integration, API Explorer can help you ensure that Bloomreach personalization APIs are returning results as expected.
The Account Information section contains a list of high level account configurations including your Account ID, Auth Keys, and FTP User ID/Password.
