For one of our implementations we came up with the (relatively simple) following requirement:
Let's show a 'Other people also viewed' kind of functional block on our content / product and other page (where relevant).
This block should leverage the analytics information collected from previous users and visitors. As this is basically a part of the functionality that the
Path Analyzer holds, worst case I need to dive into that code.
I had hoped to find some actual examples, API information but seem to find very little to nothing on this topic.
As XConnect will handle this type of requests against the Analytics reporting and MongoDB in my opinion, it might very well be that this information gets obsolete very quickly.
So my questions:
- What is best used to retrieve information out of the Sitecore Analytics at this point? API or custom written queries?
- Anyone who can guide me to some good documentation anywhere?
- Actual examples or ideas to implement the requirement listed above would obviously be welcome.
PS, Sitecore version 8 and onwards.
