Overview - Data

Data is any information that you wish to store, analyze and track. When you onboard with MoEngage, one of the first things to do would be to integrate your data into MoEngage through various options. This data typically consists of user attributes and events used to create segments and run analytics and campaigns.

Types of Data

      • User - User data contains information about the user and is available in the User Profile for any user in the system. For every user, the following information is available in MoEngage - MoEngage derived attributes or standard attributes and any custom user attributes that can be sent to MoEngage. MoEngage generates derived attributes based on user behavior. For more information, refer to User Profile and Derived User Attributes.
      • Device - A user can have multiple devices associated with them, and this is stored in MoEngage as Device Data. Device-specific attributes such as the advertising identifier (the unique user ID associated with a mobile device to help advertisers personalize their offerings) are available in the User Profile.
      • Event - An event is an occurrence tied to user behavior or action. For example, logging in, logging out, viewing a web page, adding an item to a cart, and so on. Event data contains information about such events. Events are classified as follows:
