FAQ: Exporting raw data for a chart or event

  • Updated

This article covers some frequently asked questions about exporting raw data for a chart or event.

Can I export the raw event data for the events included in this chart instead of the chart results?
How do I export a .CSV of all occurrences of a specific event?
How do I see the data that was pulled into this chart?
Can I see event and user property values for every instance of this event in the last 30 days?

These questions all have the same answer: There is currently no way to export selected raw data for a chart or all data for selected events. Amplitude was built to perform large-scale, complex analyses inside the application;because of this, isolating and exporting event data in a SQL-like manner is not supported.

However, there are a few alternatives that might help you.

Export API

To export all values of an event and its event properties, you can use Amplitude's Export API. This API will export all events across a specified time range and return them in JSON format. Once exported, you'll still have to extract the values of the specific events you're looking for.

If your data exceeds the size limitation of the Export API, consider using the self-service Amazon S3 Export option (described below) instead.

Query Add-on: Amplitude SQL / Snowflake ETL

With the Amplitude SQL add-on, you can perform SQL-like queries in an Amplitude-maintained Snowflake instance. For customers who have an existing relationship with Snowflake, Amplitude can also share data from an Amplitude-managed Snowflake account to a customer-managed Snowflake account. This add-on is only available for Growth and Enterprise accounts, and would require an additional purchase on top of a paid plan.

Amazon S3 Export

Scholarship, Growth, and Enterprise accounts can export their data directly to an Amazon S3 bucket. It also lets users analyze their Amplitude data alongside other sources of data that users might not have within Amplitude.
