Setting Up Cross Domain Tracking View

Hello Everyone! 


Have just begun expanding my website and I am having issues getting the information to display for my Subdomains. 


I have placed all the tracking snippets and set up my filter as follow:


  • Filter Type: Custom filter > Advanced
  • Field A: Hostname Extract A: (.*)
  • Field B: Request URI Extract: (.*)
  • Output To: Request URI Constructor: $A1$B1

But I am still unable to see the full URLs in the domain list. 


Any thoughts?

Hi :-)
Usually when tracking subdomains, they would have the same tracking snippet with same tracking id as the parent (main) domain.


Has the same tracking code snippet with the same tracking id been placed on all the subdomains?

Did you create a new View to apply the filter to?
Best practices recommends leaving the initial default View without any filters applied.
The new View with the filter applied, will track going forward from the time its created, usually takes around 24hrs to start displaying data in the Standard Reports.. 
And then you will be able to see the full URLs in the Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages report
