Question of activity reports

hi, all

I have read from the portal online help Link:[]

that there are two data collection type for portal objects

Monitor Hits: If set to true, data is collected about the number of people who viewed this page/iVIews, default true

Monitor Users (pages only): If set to true, data about the users who visited this page is collected, default false.

I am not very sure about the second one, is this mean the information of "which user visit which iView" will not not be collected, but only "which page visit by which user" will be collected?

If so, how the activity report of the total impression of each user come out?

Can any expert explain to me ?

    the activity report offers the following possible reports:

    - how many anonymous/authorized users were logged in in the specified timeframe

    - who were the most active users in the specified timeframe

    - how often a page/iView was visitied i the specified timeframe

    Another option for usage reporting is the activity data collector. It provides a file that you can use in Excel or SAP BI to create your own reports.

    There is no standard report for 'who visited which iView/page and when'. This is because of privacy security.

    Portal activity reports help you which page or iview the users visited.

    There may be many content in the portal. But the monitoring people mainly wants what content people are mostly visiting. This can help them to update that content frequently. Not only that the content people are not visiting can be made more attractive or it can be removed also.

    using portal activity you will not get what content the user is accessed, but you can get the what content(iview/page) most users are visiting.

    You can also get the what users accessed for a particulare iview/page.

    You can get minute level monitoring of portal using third party tools like google analytics etc..... .Just integrate them and get the results.

    • Hi,

      The Portal Activity Report collects the information about users only for pages, and not for iViews. The reason for not collecting the information also for iviews was due to the assumption that usually in correct content design, iViews are located inside pages, and thus once you have the page, you know what iViews are inside this page.

      Collecting less data at the end, helps for better performance (especially if it is considered duplicated data, and hence redundant).

      In case you would like to collect more data about the rendered content, that is not provided by the Portal Activity Report, you can use the Activity Data Collector instead, and configure by yourself all the data you would like to collect. This feature is flexible, and is written in order to provide customers the ability to decide themselves what they would like to collect.

      Thank you,
