In Instagram Managed Data source I have:

Why in response I don’t have any information about likes / comments ?

Second thing

If I configure Resource Type as Popular Media I’m not getting any response even for such popular tag as “girl” ?

Third thing

Lets assume such a case. I wan’t to filter all data for tag #girl. So I’m creating simple filter

instagram.tag contains_any “girl”

And now is the problem. Is there any possibility to have “global search” managed data source ? Or should I create datasource per tag that I want to search for ?

First thing - Why no info about Likes/Comments?
What you’re looking at here is an Image interaction. By default we pass no Comment/Like information through with an Image or Video post, as we usually pull these posts fast enough for very few individuals to have had time to engage with the post.
Unfortunately individual Likes interactions are unsupported. We have a new version of Managed Sources which I’m happy to switch you over to which provides regular like_count and comment_count interactions for each post (Image/Video) you receive.
Please raise a support ticket at support.datasift.com if you’re interested in getting access to these new *_count interaction subtypes. We’re happy to spend some time talking through the new Managed Sources architecture if it will be helpful.

Second thing - Popular Media
The popular media feed was deprecated by Instagram recently (see Instagram changelog); this option is in the process of being removed from the DataSift UI.
The valid options are;

  • tag
  • user
  • location

Third thing - How to use #tags
The CSDL you have specified will work. This will filter for Instagram interactions containing #girl across all of your Instagram Managed Sources. You can limit to a specific source by using something like the following;

instagram.tag in "girl" AND
source.id == "6f2a267a00384c5093ce31f2dcac2ca1"

Please let me know if I’ve misunderstood your problem here in any way.
