Splunk App for Web Analytics: Why does the Generate Page Lookup fail and "http_request" field does not appear to exist?

Explorer

I have green checks on everything except page lookups. I have tried dissecting the WA_pages lookup generation and found that http_request does not exist.

Strangely, I get non-pageviews but no pageviews. So Analytics center works, audience works, Acquisition works, Behavior and Traffic are where it starts to break.

I have an eventype=pageview.

Is there something else I can try to get the http_request field?

Hi

I believe the problem is that the field extraction is not working for your log type. The app identifies what is a pageview (html, php etc.) vs a non-pageview (jpg, css, js). If that field is not extracted it will not work correctly.

Check using the field extractor or by manually doing a regex to get that field extracted correctly into the http_request field.

Have you had any luck with this? I'm having the same issue.

Still no luck.

I found that it was log-dependent. A different log I pulled in did have the http_request field. Since it was for a proof of concept, that worked well enough.
