Detect trackers in conversations

You can detect trackers using the Conversations API Get Conversation operation.

Before detecting trackers, you need to select one or more trackers from the Managed Trackers Library or create your own Custom Trackers.

After selecting or creating trackers, you need to process a conversation. All trackers in Your Trackers are applied when you process a conversation. By default, trackers are enabled for all conversations.

Authentication

Before using this API, you must generate your authentication token (AUTH_TOKEN) as described in Authenticate.

Use Case

You recently selected some trackers from the Managed Trackers Library. Then you processed a conversation and have the conversation ID. You need to see the which trackers were detected. Then you can analyze the results and decide if you want to edit one of the Managed Trackers or create your own custom tracker.

Get conversation

GET <https://api.symbl.ai/v1/conversations/{conversationId}/trackers>

Request parameter

ParameterDescription
Conversation IDRequired. The Conversation ID of any conversation processed after you added Trackers to Your Trackers.

To make a sample request directly from docs, see Get Conversation.

Get conversation request

To detect Trackers using the Conversations API, use the GET <https://api.symbl.ai/v1/conversations/{conversationId}/trackers> operation.

import fetch from 'node-fetch';

const accessToken = '<ACCESS_TOKEN>';
const conversationId = '<CONVERSATION_ID>';


const fetchResponse = await fetch(`https://api.symbl.ai/v1/conversations/{conversationId}/trackers`, {
  method: get,
  headers: {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer ${accessToken}',
    'Content-Type': 'application/json'
  }
});

const responseBody = await fetchResponse.json();

console.log(responseBody);

Where:

  • <ACCESS_TOKEN> is a valid API access token.
  • <CONVERSATION_ID> is the conversationId of a previously processed conversation, such as 5704813242220544.
