Method: properties.audienceLists.create

Creates an audience list for later retrieval. This method quickly returns the audience list's resource name and initiates a long running asynchronous request to form an audience list. To list the users in an audience list, first create the audience list through this method and then send the audience resource name to the audienceLists.query method.

See Creating an Audience List for an introduction to Audience Lists with examples.

An audience list is a snapshot of the users currently in the audience at the time of audience list creation. Creating audience lists for one audience on different days will return different results as users enter and exit the audience.

Audiences in Google Analytics 4 allow you to segment your users in the ways that are important to your business. To learn more, see Audience lists contain the users in each audience.

This method is available at beta stability at audienceExports.create. To give your feedback on this API, complete the Google Analytics Audience Export API Feedback form.
