Google Analytics of "school" sub-domain is reflecting its own traffic as well as other sub-domain

Hi All,

 

This is to bring to your notice that we just migrated our website and sub-domains from http to https, however in case of school Sub-domain the Google Analytics data is reflecting incorrect result, while rest of the other sub-domains are reflecting correct data.

 

While we checking GA, the "school" sub-domain is reflecting its own traffic as well as that of "bschool" sub-domain. 

 

So just wanted to bring this concern to everyone's notice so that we can address it at the earliest.

 

As per the view filters mentioned below, it may happen that due to the exact condition (except the word "b") the traffic "bschool" sub-domains is getting merged in "school" sub-domain.

 

school\.example\.com$

bschool\.example\.com$

 

See below the different conditions applied during migration;

 

Before migration home page URL

http://www.example.com         

 

After

https://www.example.com

 

Before migration Subdomain URL

http://www.abc.example.com

 

After

https://abc.example.com

 

Kindly look into this and resolve the problem.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Praveen K :-)

this is a public user to user community.

You likely just need to adjust your filter configurations to reflect the change in domain name

 

Are you able to provide a screenshot of the relevant filter configuration?
So can see what exactly needs to be changed.

Hi :-)

Keep in mind, filters are not retroactive and will not change past, historical data already collected in a View


Make sure on the School View, there is only one filter applied and you can use either a predefined filter

or 

custom filter but be sure to use a ^ at the beginning so bschool and school do not get combined into being the same.

You can use ^ it at the beginning of any domain filter.

It ensures that is where the string begins matching
