Creating a Data Source for Webtrends Analytics 9 On Demand

When you set up a Webtrends Analytics 9 On Demand account, you need to specify a data source in Analytics 9 Administration and associate it with your profile to collect information about your website activity.

When you create a data source, Webtrends generates a Webtrends JavaScript tag containing the unique DCSID for your site. If you have multiple domains and you want to report traffic for those sites separately, create a data source for each domain.

  1. Log in to your Webtrends Analytics 9 account at http://ondemand.webtrends.com using your Webtrends user name and password. If you don’t know your login information, see the email you received when you registered for your account or contact your Webtrends administrator.
  2. If you are in Webtrends Accounts, click Administration to open the WebtrendsAdministration menu.
  3. In the left pane, go to Administration > Application Settings > Data Sources.
  4. Click New Data Source.
  5. In the General dialog, type a name for the data source in the Data Source Name text box. Specify a meaningful name for this data source.
  6. Select the time zone that you want to associate with this data source. Webtrends uses the time zone to translate date and time fields in your web activity data to local time. It is also used to determine when to run the Log file Delivery Service, if it is enabled.
  7. If your organization has signed up for Log File Delivery service and you have user rights to this feature, you can enable Webtrends to store logs for this data source. Select the check box to enable this feature.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Read the Summary to ensure your settings are correct, and save the data source.
  10. To configure and download JavaScript tracking code associated with this data source, return to the Data Sources list and click Build Tag (Tracking Code). You can use this code to tag your website.
  11. To continue to set up your account, you need to create a profile. For more information about creating a profile, see the Analytics 9 On Demand Accounts User's Guide .
