Setup from Segment

After you setup your Segment account, navigate to the Segment dashboard. Click the FullStory logo to view the configuration pane.

In the configuration pane, simply enter your FullStory Org ID under FS Org. Your Organization ID can be found in FullStory's Settings > General tab. Look for the value found on this line: window[‘_fs_org’] = ‘ABC’

Segment Data Sources and FullStory

Segment provides ways to track customer data from multiple sources. Please note that only data that is tracked with Analytics.js directly on the website will be available in FullStory. FullStory isn't able to ingest customer data from Segment if the data comes from a source other than Analytics.js (e.g. FullStory can't track Segment data from Segment's Mobile, Server, Cloud App, or their generic HTTP sources).
