Filter active audiences on GET Audiences API & Remove an audience

Hi!


As an Optimizely editor, it would be nice to be able to remove an audience.

Archiving is not enough, as archived audiences are also returned in the GET Audiences API (see https://library.optimizely.com/docs/api/app/v2/index.html#operation/list_audiences for more info). This means more and more paginated requests are required to fetch all audiences when more and more audiences are inevitably created (regardless of archiving others), slowly but surely decreasing the efficiency.


Alternatively/additionally, it would be nice to be able to use a filter on that GET Audiences API so that only unarchived audiences are fetched. Otherwise, a lot of filtering is necessary by the consumers of the API (after a lot of network requests).


Thank you in advance and please let me know if there are any questions!


With the kindest regards,

Matthias

    Hi Jett,


    Thank you for the follow-up. I can understand and agree the ability to delete (when archiving is supported) is not necessary.

    I hope the alternative I talk about in my original post is something that instead can be implemented? To be able to fetch only audiences that are not archived?


    Let me know if you want me to create a new feedback item or somehow adjust this one.

    Wkr,
    Matthias

    Today, we don't have the ability to delete (only support archiving) any components including audiences. I'm looking to better understand the reason for that and if it's something we can support in our stack. I'll post an update here once I know more.

    Hey Matthias, we haven't gotten to this yet as we're currently tackling higher priority initiatives. However, we are aware of this existing issue and will address it as soon as we can. Thanks for your valuable feedback!

    Hi,


    Any news regarding this topic?


    Also, it would be nice to be able to use a sort on the GET Audiences API so that audiences can be fetched by their name in alphabetical order (A>Z), or their creation date (NEW>OLD).

    We currently need to fetch all the audiences and then sort them in the frontend application. This makes the paginated aspect of the API useless.

    Any additional sorting possibilities are nice to have.


    With the kindest regards,

    Matthias
