If we’re using web analytics applications – like Google Analytics or Omniture – we may want to ensure Rigor’s automated tests don’t impact analytics data.
There are two main ways to exclude Rigor from analytics:
- Exclude Rigor’s IP Addresses from our third-party analytics with filter settings (e.g. Exclude internal traffic from Google Analytics with view filters, or
- Exclude analytics files from loading when Rigor runs Real Browser checks
We can select excluded files from Rigor’s preset options or add custom exclusion rules.
Note: If we’d like to see the impact of our web analytics service on our site’s performance we should use IP addresses to filter within our analytics settings instead of adding Excluded Files in the Rigor app.
