This article explains how to configure Gainsight PX Cloud Server with Segment.
Gainsight PX Cloud Server integration allows Segment server-side events to be sent to the Gainsight PX. Server side data is designed to track backend events that might not be exposed in the web application UI or is not being clicked by the user.
Server-side tracking main use cases:
Aggregated user and account metrics such as API usage, number of reports.
Events sourced by other systems connected to Segment.
Segment integration allows you to take advantage of an existing integration with Segment from all the various platforms that Segment supports.
You can send events into Gainsight PX with a simple button click.
If your product already uses the Gainsight PX client side script, sending server-side events gives you a bigger picture view of what your customers are doing in your system.
To use the Gainsight PX Cloud Server integration, you need:
Segment event source
Gainsight PX admin account.

Integrate Gainsight PX Using Segment Cloud Server and Segment Web App
This section helps you integrate Gainsight PX with your application using both the Segment Cloud Server and the Segment web integration.
When you use both the Segment Web App and Cloud Server integrations, duplicate events are created in Gainsight PX due to multiple connections. Gainsight PX recommends you to use the Segment ‘integrations’ filter to control the events that are targeted to the Cloud Server. For more information on Filtering your Segment Data, click here.
Note: The internal name for the web-based integration is ‘Aptrinsic’ though it is named as ‘Gainsight PX’ in the Segment marketplace.
