Querying visitor information
In addition to tagging, the linkedId lets you connect an identification event with a custom identifier that is indexed by Fingerprint Pro. This lets you filter visit history when querying the server API. Unlike tags, the linkedId is a string. Objects or non-string values are not supported.
The server API returns identification events up to 30 days in the past. For information critical to your business, we recommend storing copies of this data on your own servers. Enterprise plans include unlimited server-side storage of identification events.
The table below lists common use cases and basic implementation using the Fingerprint Pro linkedId and server API visitors endpoint.
|Authenticated User Tracking - bulk information collection of authenticated visitors||Link user ID with |
|Form & Survey Abuse - protect forms from duplicate entries||Link survey ID with |
|Coupon & Promo Abuse - protect profits from duplicate promotion abuse||Link promo code with |
|E-commerce Inventory Abuse - prevent illicit repeat orders made by anonymous visitors||Link order ID with |
Do not expose the server API key in production. You can make requests from the server side using our official Node.js wrapper. If you need to access the server API in production, it is recommended you perform authorization via auth headers instead of using the api key inside the endpoint.
