Apigee uses the monetization variables for rating, calculating revenue share, and analytics. If you want your Apigee analytics to show the monetization information. By using the monetization variables, you can enhance the monetization capabilities of your transactions.

Monetization variables

The monetization variable names are predefined, and you can't create, edit, or delete the variables. You can assign either request or response variables to the monetization variables.

This table describes the monetization variables available in Apigee:

Monetization variable Data type Description
currency String Specifies the currency for calculating the revenue from a transaction.
perUnitPriceMultiplier Float Specifies the factor (multiplier) by which the per-transaction cost is multiplied. The per-transaction cost is specified in the rate plan's Consumption-based fees pricing. The multiplication is performed for a transaction only if the transaction is monetizable. A transaction is monetizable if any one of the following condition is satisfied:
  • If the transactionSuccess variable is true.
  • If the transactionSuccess variable is NULL and the message.status.code is 2xx (success).
revShareGrossPrice Float

Specifies the revenue of the transaction for calculating the developer's share. Apigee calculates the developer's share only if you have enabled revenue sharing in your rate plan.

transactionSuccess boolean Specifies if the transaction should be monetized.
  • If the variable is set to true, the transaction is monetized.
  • If the variable is set to false, the transaction is not monetized.
  • If you don't specify this variable, the transactions are monetization based on the value of the HTTP status code available in the message.status.code variable. If the HTTP status code of the response is NULL or >=300, a transaction is not monetized; for all other status codes, the transaction is monetized.

Value assignment examples

The following examples show how to assign values to the monetization variables:

currency

The following example assigns the value of the booking[0].currency JSON element in the response to the currency variable:

<Capture>
  <Collect>
    <Source>response</Source>
    <JSONPayload>
      <JSONPath>booking[0].currency</JSONPath>
    </JSONPayload>
  </Collect>
  <DataCollector scope="monetization">currency</DataCollector>
</Capture>
    

perUnitPriceMultiplier

The following example assigns the value of the booking[0].factor JSON element in the response to the perUnitPriceMultiplier variable:

<Capture>
  <Collect>
    <Source>response</Source>
    <JSONPayload>
      <JSONPath>booking[0].factor</JSONPath>
    </JSONPayload>
  </Collect>
  <DataCollector scope="monetization">perUnitPriceMultiplier</DataCollector>
</Capture>
    

revShareGrossPrice

The following example assigns the value of the minPrice variable in the response header to the revShareGrossPrice variable:

<Capture>
  <Collect>
    <Source>response</Source>
    <Header name="minPrice">
      <Pattern ignoreCase="true">{$}</Pattern>
    </Header>
  </Collect>
  <DataCollector scope="monetization">revShareGrossPrice</DataCollector>
</Capture>
    

transactionSuccess

The following example assigns the value of the bookingStatus variable in the response header to the transactionSuccess variable:

<Capture>
  <Collect>
    <Source>response</Source>
    <Header name="bookingStatus">
      <Pattern ignoreCase="true">{$}</Pattern>
    </Header>
  </Collect>
  <DataCollector scope="monetization">transactionSuccess</DataCollector>
</Capture>
