In the 'General Info' tab, name your river, describe it, and choose a group.
Next, navigate to the 'Source' tab.

Find Brandwatch in the list of data sources and select it. (under Marketing)

Under Source Connection, select the connection you created, or create a new one

Next, Select a type of report:

All reports can be filtered by Projects. Leave this input empty to pull data for all available projects under your Brandwatch connection.

Queries / Queries Groups Filter:

Some reports can be filtered by Queries / Queries Groups. After selecting the filter type (by Query ID or by Query Group ID) and filtering desired Projects, click the Queries / Queries Group input to get a list of all available Queries / Queries Groups. Leave this input empty to get data for all queries.

When the 'Skip Errors' checkbox is enabled, the river will raise a warning when it fails to get data for some queries and will continue to the next ones. Otherwise, the river will fail if getting an error for a certain query.

Basic Charts Report:

As well as retrieving pages of Mentions, you can also create charts out of them. Select an Aggregate field and a Dimension field for charts data report (required). You can find here more information about aggregates and dimensions fields.

You can select a second dimension in the Dimension 2 input or leave this input empty to get data for one dimension only.

Reports' Time Period:

Select the Time Period of the report:

All the reports support two kinds of the time period:  

  •  Date Range
    • Pulls data in the date range between the start and end date provided, including the end date.
    •  You must select a start date.
    • Leaving the end date empty will pull data according to the current time of the river's run.
    • Select a timezone offset to send dates considering the offset.
    • Use the "Last Days Back For Each Run" to expend the start date and pull data a given number of days back before the chosen start date.
  •  Predefined date  - A date range defined by Rivery:
    • Day - Yesterday.
    • Week (From Monday to Sunday) - Week to date, Previous week, Previous week to date.
    • Month - Month to date, Previous month, Previous month to date.
    • Year - Year to date.

Interval Chunks

Rivery can run over the increment using chunks, in order to make the loading more efficient and more precise. You can choose from:

  • Don't Split - Rivery will pull the data from the chosen start date to the end date in one bulk.
  • Daily - The run will be chunked daily from the start to the end date.
  • Monthly - The run will be chunked monthly from the start to the end date.
  • Yearly (Less Recommended) -  The run will be chunked yearly from the start to the end date.

Interval Size - Set the size of each interval.  

For example - setting the Interval Size to 4 with a Daily Interval Chunk will split the date period into 4 days chunks. Running from the 01/01/2020 until the 08/01/2020 will be split to two intervals: from the 01/01/2020 until the 04/01/2020 and from the 05/01/2020 until the 08/01/2020.
