Tracking Intranet Activity

If you use Webtrends Analytics 9 software, you can use the Intranet Domains feature to track usage of your corporate intranet and to identify the activity on your website generated by internal users.

Typically within large organizations, certain subnets or ranges of IP addresses represent a department, area, or location within an organization. Using intranet domains, you can define the domains that identify an area of your organization by country, state, city, department, or even individual workstation. Webtrends includes this information in geographic reports and in the Organizations and Domains reports.

Use the following procedure to configure intranet domains.

  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Web Analysis > Report Configuration > Intranet Domains.
  2. Click New.
  3. In the Domain Name text box, specify a name to identify this intranet domain definition in reports.
  4. In the Description text box, provide a description to identify this intranet domain definition in WebtrendsAdministration.
  5. Select the location of the domain using City, State/Province, and Country lists.
  6. In the IP Address/Pattern/Subnet text box, specify all or a portion of the IP address that identifies this domain. You can specify a DNS name space or range of IP addresses using wildcards or CIDR notation.
  7. If you want to use this intranet domain definition in all profiles, click the Global: Include in all profiles check box.
  8. Click Save.
  9. If you did not configure the intranet domain definition for inclusion in all profiles, you can enable it in individual profiles:
    1. In the left pane, click Web Analysis > Reports & Profiles, mouse over a profile and click Edit on the Action menu.
    2. Click Advanced > Intranet Domains.
    3. Select the check box for each intranet domain you want to track or select the Always use all Intranet Domain definitions check box to track all intranet domains, including domains that are defined after you enable this setting.
    4. Click Save.
