Filter to Exclude a User Agent

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to exclude sessions coming from a specific user agent using the standard filters?

As far as I know, we have only the browser version in GA.


Thanks

There's a Browser field as well under custom option. You could also use regex as well, i.e., firefox.* for all firefox browsers.

This is the User Agent:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Windows NT 6.1; XXXXXXXXXXXX) AppleWebKit/537.36(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/43.0.2357.81

I should match the XXXXXXXXXXXX part, is it possible?

Does it appear like this in the browser report in GA? if so, then you could use use regex - .*xxxxxx.*

In GA I have Chrome as Browser and 43.0.2357.81 as browser version. Is there any dimension containing the full user agent?
