Is it possible to re-open this demand as it seems that there are missing a lot of fields for Video updates compared to image update as impression, engagement, engagement rate... we only have now video views, watched time (from 1 table) and likes and comment (from another table).
Also, for example with power my analytics linkedin for datastudio, all the data (impression, engagement..) are available for all type of linkedin updates.
Thanks !

This got caught in the comment moderation, but I see you made a new thread about it. I gave an explanation why we did it this way over there:

Thank you,

Hello, could I find out if we could include video start?


Here is the doc referencing to this metric.

Hi Andrew!

This thread is for video metrics for LinkedIn Company Pages, not the Ads connector. Could you please start a new thread for this request? We would need to add that as we currently only support the "Viral video starts" in the LinkedIn Ads connector.

Thank you,
Jessica

Hi!

We finally have some metrics available for videos! :tada:

We have added the following:
-Video views
-Video time watched for views

These two metrics are compatible with the UGC detail dimension: supermetrics.com/docs/integration-linkedin-pages-fields/#field:ugc_id
So you can get the video share ID, text, and link via those fields.

Thank you for your patience as we figured these out and hope this improves your reporting for LinkedIn.

With Hootsuite Analytics, reporting video updates doesn't seem to be a problem, everything works smoothly there...

To update due to some concerns voiced here:

The problem is technical feasibility with this one.

The API only allows you to fetch one video at a time with one metric at a time. We tried this in the past and even for one metric, it took something like 15 minutes get the data. It gets worse if we need to fetch more metrics as we have to make x2, x3, x4 the requests. We had some queries taking over an hour to complete, which won't work for some products like Data Studio, and nobody want's to wait that long.

I have brought this up to our LinkedIn contacts, and they confirmed this is how the API currently works. However, they were not able to say if they planned to change this later to work with say, a bulk fetch or allow for getting more than one metric at once.

I'm sorry that we don't yet have a good solution for this due to the technical limitations. We'll continue to work with LinkedIn to see if we can get the API changed or find another workaround to get the data in a timely manner.

Thank you,

Ridiculous people are requesting this for 2 years and it is still not available.

Without this we cant really use it for our clients reports. So yeah.. not buying yet.

This also needs to pull in data from document posts please. Unless this connector keeps pace with changes on the LinkedIn platform, it really doesn't provide much value.

Without this I can only see half of my posts making the connector useless. We need it asap!
