Our customers spoke up and we've heard you loud and clear. As we are closely working with our customers and evaluating their feedback on Data Streams, we are happy to announce that we released extensions to the available data as well as some improvements on handling of that data in our processing pipeline.

Key Benefits

With this update, our customers that use Data Streams will have the following extensions and improvements in their data:

  • The “Action” request with the name “webtrekk_ignore” is used to avoid generating real action requests that are shown in the Analyses, but to pass relevant “Action” context related information (e.g. action parameters) to Mapp. Prior to this update, this information was missing in the data. It is now available.
  • Internal Search Phrases (page.internalSearchPhrase) are now available under Page related information.
  • External Search Phrases (page.externalSearchPhrase) are now available under Page related information.
  • A new field called (session.requestNumber) is now available under Session related information in order to properly detect begin of a session as well as the order of requests per session.
  • Prior to this update, User categories and/or CustomerId were not available in the stream in most cases. The reason was due to the internal handling logic that the final customer was determined at the end of the session only. This behavior is changed and this information is also currently available.
