Configuring Urchin 6 Profiles

Step 1 - Profile Information
To create a new profile, first navigate to the profile list by clicking Configuration in the top-right part of the screen. Next, on the left menu, choose Urchin Profiles >> Profiles. On this screen, click the add button.

Profile Manager Toolbar


After clicking the Add button, Urchin will prompt you with a profile setup wizard. The first screen is shown to the right. Complete the form:

  1. If datacenter mode is enabled, choose which account to add this profile under. Selecting "(NONE)" will create the profile under the default account.
  2. Enter the name by which you want to identify this new profile. Note: this name must be unique.
  3. Choose whether or not ecommerce will be tracked for this profile.
  4. Choose the tracking method: IP+User Agent or UTM (see Tracking Basics for more information).
  5. For basic scenarios, leave the UTM domain field blank. There are better ways to implement this using an include filter.

Step 2 - General Settings
Upon continuing, you will be presented with a screen to edit the new profile's general settings.

  1. The Website URL and Site Domains fields may be left blank (there are better ways to implement these features by using filters).
  2. You may set your site's default (or home) page in the Default Page field. Depending on the site setup, the default page may come across as just a slash (/) in the reports. Other times, the actual page may be shown. By specifying the default page, this tells Urchin to track pageviews for this file and "/" as the same page.
  3. We recommend leaving Parallel Log Processing off, as no major difference is seen in the processing stage.
  4. Congratulations, a new profile has been created! You will then be prompted to add a log source to this profile. Click here to learn how to set these up.
