Upgrading causes Parameter Analysis reports to stop generating data


Webtrends Analytics 8.5


You upgrade to Webtrends 8.5 and some of your parameter analysis reports stop generating data.


There was a change to the analysis engine that affects the way the engine reads the wild card expressions for the parameter analysis definitions. To match: \folder\file.html you must specify: *\folder\file.html*

The primary difference being, that as a best practice, specify *target* with both leading and trailing asterisks (*).

Alternately, use a Regular Expression to match your values. You will have to update your parameter analysis definitions to reflect this change if you wish to see new data.
