Basic Report Configuration

Set up and generate a Webtrends Analytics 9 report.

  1. In the left pane, click Administration > Application Settings > Data Sources and create a new data source. Data sources identify the web activity data, Visitor Data Mart data, or SmartSource data files that Webtrends analyzes to create your report.
  2. In the left pane, click Web Analysis > Reports & Profiles and create a new Webtrends Analytics 9 profile. A profile captures the analysis settings for your report, for example the type of analysis, the data source, the home page of your site, DNS resolution settings, and when and how often Webtrends analyzes your site data.
    Note: If you want other users to be able to access the reports you generate, make sure they have View rights to both the profile and the template associated with the reports. To set profile access, use the Profile Access dialog in the profile settings. To set template access, click Report Designer > Templates and use the Template Access dialog in the template settings.
  3. Save your profile. Webtrends automatically begins analyzing your data, and you can refresh the Profiles panel to see the current status of the analysis. (For detailed status information, click Scheduler > Scheduled Jobs mouse over a job and click View Job Detail on the Action menu.) When your report is complete, the Profiles list shows a green check mark next to your profile.
  4. Click the name of the profile to view report data.
