Cross Domain Filtering

Good morning everyone. I have set up cross domain tracking. With one of my views I have a filter to exclude domainb.com. But my question is with this filter on should I still see users on the sites with the real time reporting? Currently I am seeing in real time users on site b. Filter was applied over 24 hours ago. Will I still see the real time but it won't make it to the data or did I mess up my filter?

Hi Matt,

 

Create a filter of type "custom" then filter on the hostname field.  If you can, it's better to use an include for the data you'd like to receive.

 

Set this in a testing view, make sure the data is what you expect; then you can use the filter settings from the Admin account tree to add it to your analysis view(s).

 

Best,

Hi Theo, thanks for the response. So with using that would I still see the users on domainb in real time?

Hi Matt,

 

It takes a few hours for filters to propagate, eventually, real-time will respect the filter.

 

Best,
