Filter: replacing Page for a custom dimension

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

We have created a new custom dimension that gets the full url (with the hostname). We would like to create a new View with a filter replacing the dimension Page that Analytics have as default for our custom dimension. For example, on the All Pages report we will see instead of the dimension Page the Full url. Is it possible? How could we do it?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

Consider using Advanced Filter. With it you can set a Page value based on your custom dimension value. Here is support pages

Thanks but, how will you do it?

Filter field: Request URI

Search String: ??

Replace String: ??

I don't know how to indicate the custom dimension. Shall I put the name of the CD on the Search string?

 

Could you give me more help?

 

Thanks!!

Thanks but doing a test on the real time the Active Page is not showing neither the Page, neither the custom dimension. It appears (not set). I don't know what is wrong. Do you have another possibility?

make sure that your custom dimension is set before your filter is applied

We have checked it and custom dimension is already running!
