Once you have chosen to implement Piano Analytics via our SDKs, our collection API or a TMS, thanks to our dedicated article, you can choose the collection method that suits you best.
Piano collection endpoint
The Piano collection endpoint is the "classic" collection you usually start with.
It is simple and works without any configuration on your side.
To find your collection domain, you can go directly to our Site Management tool:
Each site may have a different collection domain, so be sure to take the domain shared by Piano for a dedicated site.
Please note that the exemple here is based on a SDK implementation. The same applies to a Collection API implementation. Check the dedicated article to understand the difference.
Custom Domain Data Collection
To guarantee data collection in the best conditions, we provide the ability to send events to our servers with a CNAME from one of your subdomains.
By using a custom domain, you keep your events, and collect more while keeping our SLAs, you even can get the best cookie configuration (ITP).
Please note that the exemple here is based on a SDK emplementation. The same applies to a Collection API implementation. Chek the dedicated article to understand the difference.
