Https and regular expression

Hi guys.

I have a problem.

 

Recently we made the migration of our Home (that has a login and password field) to Https. Google wants it. Google gets it. lol

 

In that migration we "created" a problem. Now we are not able to receive data in some dashboards filters we had before.

In those dashboards we knew al the trafic that came from our Home (landing page).

FYI our Home was our only trackable page that became https.

 

We had some regular expressions to create the filters of those dashboards.
Could that be the problem?

 

In those regular expression we had over there we did not use http:// before the URL. So, I don't see the need to change to https://.

 

Thanks guys.
Guilherme Kawasaki. (from Brazil).

Hi, Guilherme.

Does only your dashbords were affected? Can you see "Home" page data in regular reports?

I'd suggest to check your new home page https implementation, especially http headers since it could have raise issues such as rewriting trailing slashes or http peremeters that could affect your filters.

Hi there.

 

Yes, only my dashboards were affected.

When I use regular filters such as those that generates my real time or behavior insights are normal.

 

Actually that's an old GA account. There are partners that share the same account. In those dashboards I wanna know about the users that come from my Home and go to their websites. That's an important dashboard because my partners know how many visitors come from my Homepage.

 

In our new account everything is working fine. 
I think maybe the problem could be with the reg expressions that build the filter in the dashboards.

But I don't know how could that be, since we do not use http:// or https:// in filters or expressions in general.

 

What do you think?

(And yes, I changed the protocol standard to https://).

 

Another thing is that the only page that is https:// is our homepage. Maybe that could influence?

wouldn't you mind to share the exact filter and dimensions that you use in the dashboard?

I think I may've discovered. But not solved yet.

Since we migrated our home to https half of our traffic (in that dashboard filter) is coming as (not set). 

In someway, somehow as we migrated our Home to https does that impacted the way I collect my data or my dashboard filter? I think it's just a dashboard's filter problem...
