Exclude URL Query Parameters

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've got the following settings in Google Analytics' "View Settings" for Exclude URL Query Parameters:

 

mkt_tok,p,campaignid,__jvst,p,network,crtag,_bk,_bt,_bm,__jvsd,nl

 

And it works great in Google Analytics. However, a similar report I've created in Google Data Studio is still showing pages with separate entries just because they have different values in query strings. For example

 

/company/careers/?p=job/oH8L4fwo&__jvst=Job Board&__jvsd=Indeed&nl=1

/company/careers/?p=job/o3cI4fwL&__jvst=Job Board&__jvsd=IndeedSponsored&nl=1
 
Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Patrick,

 

Did you ever get a reply to this, because this issue has been bugging me for some time and I don't know what we are supposed to do about it. It feels like a bug in DataStudio as it doesn't reflect the GA Profile View.

Are you using the same view? I'm not seing this at all with my reports and I'm using "Exclude Query Parameters" option for all my reports.

Hi Samuel,

 

Yes, I am definitely using the same view. A view I called '01. Main Profile' and it has about 26 different query parameters excluded - the same list is applied across all other profile views except for a Raw Data profile I maintain just for best practice. 

 

Coincidentally, there are some other filters from Google Analytics that Data Studio seems to ignore, such as a subdomain append transformation.

 

Cheers
