Still here? Great, perform the following steps to install Gainsight PX using Segment.
- Create your Product Definition and Gainsight PX Tag Code
- Setup Gainsight PX in Segment.com

- Select PX Integration from Segment Store
After the installation is successful, events and associated users/accounts from your product are updated in Gainsight PX.
Create your Product Definition and Gainsight PX Tag Code
- Navigate to Administration > Products and create your product definition. Following image shows you an example.
A tab for each channel is displayed such as Web App and Website for which the Gainsight PX Tag can be generated.
The URL you enter is for informational purposes only and what you enter there does not impact your use of Gainsight PX. Nevertheless, it is good practice to enter in the URL there to keep track of which of your products is assigned to which tags.
Now you have created the tag that will be associated with your product and channel (i.e. Web App or Website). If you also have a website that you want to track leads from, click the Website tab, enter the URL for your website to create the tag for the website channel.
Note: Gainsight PX allows you to:
- Create, track and build engagements for more than one product. Repeat the process for your additional products.
- Define a product for each of your environments such as staging and production that you plan to use.
If you use the free version, Gainsight PX allows you to define only one product.
Setup Gainsight PX in Segment.com

Verify User Event Data is Flowing into Gainsight PX
After your developers confirm that the above steps are completed and the code is pushed, log in your Gainsight PX subscription to check whether the events, users and accounts are updated from your application.

Select one of the users and click on the Full Profile button on the User Profile tab to review the recent activity.
