landingPagePath dimension: what's the scope?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I know that every dimension has a scope e.g. session, hit, user etc.

What's the scope of landingPagePath, when I fetch this in JSON reports?

 

Also, is there any documentation that groups dimensions by scopes? Thanks.

landingPagePath, secondPagePath and exitPagePath are all session-scope.

 

No documentation of the scope of dimensions that I know of.

That's great, thanks Mike.

 

Just one follow up question. Suppose I've a query like this,

          dimensions: [ { name: 'ga:transactionId' }, { name: 'ga:campaign' },
                        { name: 'ga:adContent' }, { name: 'ga:sourceMedium' },
                        { name: 'ga:landingPagePath' } ],
          metrics: [ { expression: 'ga:itemQuantity' } ],
          dimensionFilterClauses: [{
            filters: [{
              dimensionName: 'ga:transactionId',
              operator: 'EXACT',
              expressions: [ORDER1234]
            }]
          }]

So will the landingPagePath be of the particular order/transaction session, or it'll be of the latest session this user had, which may not be the one in which he made the order.

In other words, when we combine the transactionId with landingPagePath, do we get landingPagePath for the particular session? If no, is there any way to get that? Thanks!

Yes, the landingPagePath will be for the session that included the transaction id.

 

You can see this in a standard report by going to the Conversion > Ecommerce > Sales Performance report and setting the Secondary dimension to Landing Page.
