non-default Index

How do I get the App for Web Analytics to look at data in a different index? I made sure to add all non-default indexes to my role and when I search for "index=blah and tag=web" I see all of the correct data with file, site etc fields populated but if I remove "index=blah" no data shows up so Web Analytics isn't seeing the other index.

Hi @sov_gwright,
you can have two different approach:

  • modify index search default path for the roles used in your App in [Settings -- Roles -- <your_role> -- Indexes -- Default];
  • modify eventtype web-traffic in your app: copying eventtypes.conf from default to local folder (if not present, create it) and modifying the first eventtype web-traffic adding the indexes to use.

I always prefer the second solution.

Ciao.

Thanks that worked perfectly - now I'm struggling with Pages and Page Views as it only seems to want to see GET when 99% of our traffic is not GET.
