Creating a Scenario for SmartView

  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Web Analysis > Report Configuration > Scenario Analysis.
  2. Click New.
  3. Type a unique name that identifies this scenario in the list of Scenario Analysis definitions in the Name text box.
  4. If you want to use SmartSource tags to configure your website for Scenario Analysis, type the value of the WT.si_n parameter in the SmartSource Identification String text box. Webtrends identifies the web pages having this value with this Scenario Analysis definition. Otherwise, leave this text box blank.
  5. Type an informative description for the Scenario in the Short Description text box.
  6. Provide explanatory information for report users in the Help Card text box.
  7. If you want Webtrends to use only SmartSource tags to identify scenarios, select the Use SmartSource tags exclusively check box.
  8. If you want Webtrends to identify scenarios by the URLs that you specify (either as the primary method or as an alternative to SmartSource tags), clear the Use SmartSource tags exclusively check box.
  9. Click Add to configure each step in the Scenario.
    1. Type a unique name for the step in the Name text box. The name identifies the step in the Webtrends user interface.
    2. Type the Webtrends query parameter that identifies the step in the SmartSource Identification String text box. To identify the step by name, use the value of the WT.si_p parameter. For example, specify CartView. To identify the step by position, specify the value of the WT.si_x parameter.
    3. After you configure all the steps for this scenario, arrange the steps in the Ordered List of Steps list box to specify each step’s position.
    4. Type a name that identifies the step in reports in the Report Name text box.
    5. Provide explanatory information for this step in the Help Card text box. This information is included in the Help Card section of the report.
    6. Click Next.
    7. If you selected the Use SmartSource tags exclusively check box, do not specify settings in the When to Measure dialog. Otherwise, type the URL of the page to track for this step in the Page Expression text box. Webtrends looks for SmartSource data first, and if there is none, it identifies scenario data using the URLs you specify in the Page Expression text box.
    8. If you want to treat the Page Expression as a regular expression, select the Regular Expression check box. Otherwise, leave the check box clear.
    9. Click New URL Parameter to specify the parameters that define this step.
    10. Click Save.
  10. Repeat Step 9 for each step in your Scenario.
  11. Use the arrows in the Ordered List of Steps list box to arrange the steps in the order that visitors encounter them.
