Exporting segments in the Amazon Pinpoint console

From the Segments page in the Amazon Pinpoint console, you can export an existing segment to a file on your computer. When you do, Amazon Pinpoint exports all of the information that's associated with the endpoints in the segment to a file.

This feature is useful if you want to share a list of segment members with somebody else in your organization who doesn't use Amazon Pinpoint. It's also helpful in situations where you want to modify the segment by using a different application.

  1. Open the Amazon Pinpoint console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/pinpoint/.

  2. On the All projects page, choose the project that contains the segment that you want to export.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Segments.

  4. In the list of segments, choose the segment that you want to export.

  5. At the top of the page, choose Export, as shown in the following image.

    The name of the segment, there are five buttons: Delete, Duplicate, Edit, Export, and Create a campaign.
  6. Amazon Pinpoint creates a new export job, and you see the Recent exports tab on the Segments page.

    Note the value in the Export status column for the segment that you exported. When you first create the export job, the status is In progress.

    Wait a few minutes, and then choose the refresh ( The refresh button. ) button. If the status is still In progress, wait another minute, and then repeat this step. Otherwise, if the status is Complete, proceed to the next step.


    If a segment requires more than 10 minutes to complete, the export process times out. If you need to export very large segments, you should use the CreateExportJob operation in the Amazon Pinpoint API.

  7. Choose Download to save the segment to your computer, as shown in the following image.

    The Recent exports table on the Segments page. In the column that's furthest to the right, there's a button labeled Download.
