Collection methods

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.

Classic Collection

To find your collection domain, you can go directly to our Site Management tool:

Collection domain

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).

CDDC Collection

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.

If you want more information related to our Custom Domain Data Collection method, don't hesitate to consult the dedicated article in our Help Center.
