This article covers how to track usage for a web application e.g. google.co.uk
Before configuring the web applicaiton tracking there are a few prerequisites:
- The usage tracking agent needs to be installed
- The usage tracking agent needs to be enabled by setting the string "Disabled=False" in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Usage Agent\CurrentVersion]
- Also in the same key ensure that "UseManualMapper=True"
- In the browser e.g. Internet Explorer / Firefox ensure that the Web Application Tracker BHO add in is enabled
Once the above steps are completed you need to create a key for the application, in this example the application is for any of the Google sites:
Create the registry key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Usage Agent\CurrentVersion\Web Applications\Google]
This should then start creating usage entries in $(CommonAppData)\ManageSoft Corp\ManageSoft\Usage Agent\UsageData each time the browser session is ended.
On the server the usage will now appear in Deployment Manager reports under the Application Usage section.
You should now have usage tracked against the web application (once it's all imported / updated).
There are several variations of the URL string in the registry, please review the Discovery Guide for more examples.
The "Priority" in the registry is a Hexidecimal DWORD whereas all the others are registry strings.
