Configuring Page File Types for SmartView

If you are creating a profile to use with SmartView and your website is created using dynamic pages, Page File Types definitions determine which pages are included in the reports that SmartView uses.

Use the Page File Types dialog to specify the file extensions that identify pages on your website. For example, if your website is made up of mostly ASPX pages, the Page File Types definitions you use in your SmartView profile should include an ASPX definition. You should also configure your Page File Types definitions to show query string in reports. The Show query strings in reports setting is required in order for Webtrends report data to match the URLs on your website, making SmartView reports more meaningful.

If your global page file types definitions use the Show query string in reports setting, you can use the globally defined list. Otherwise, create your own list of page file types for your SmartView profile as described in the following procedure.

  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Web Analysis > Reports & Profiles.
  2. Mouse over a profile and click Edit from the Action menu.
  3. Click Analysis > Page File Types.
  4. Click Use page file types listed below.
  5. Click New.
  6. Type an extension that identifies one of the page file types your website uses in the File Extension text box, such as aspx.
  7. Click Show query string in reports and then click Done.
  8. Add all the file type extensions that identify pages on your website.
