This article will explain you one way to get access to the full details available in GMS for a particular user. Other methods may exist to obtain similar result.It also explain how to filter reports to obtain only the information that you need.
In this example we will follow the user Prasad and get details for a particular website he browsed: www.visitor-track.com. We will be able to see when he visited this website and what URLs he visited.
- We will start from the Top sites report, under Web Activity.First, we will filter the report by user by adding a filter ("plus" button on the top left corner) on user name in the format "domain\user", in this case: user=sv\prasad.
NOTE: Using the floppy disk button on the left of the filter will let you save this particular report configuration for later use.Saved reports can be found under the Custom Reports category and can also be used to configure Scheduled Reports which are sent by email.
- Now that our report is filtered by user, we want to have more information on the browsing activity that was made onto the website www.visitor-track.com.For this, we can simply click on the website name and the report will be filtered to show details for this particular site only.
- The report we now have does not provide enough information. To access all details (raw syslogs), right-click on the website name and then click Drilldown.You will now see all information sent by the unit to GMS/Analyzer regarding this particular user and website.
- From this report, it is easy to view details for all users or all websites, a click on the small cross after a filter will remove it. a click on the red cross at the end of the filter bar will remove all filters. Click on the arrow to submit your new filter.
As always with GMS/Analyzer, the report data is updated up-to-the-second. The capture below would show you all browsing activity for the user sv\prasad in near real-time.
NOTE:CFS enforcement is Mandatory for these reports . For CFS 4.0 please visit : CFS 4.0 Overview, For Cfs 3.0 , please visit: CFS 3.0 Overview .
