Customer sites

If you have multiple websites using the Acquia Lift service, you may want to separate your visitor events by website, rather than keeping all your websites' data together. Doing this can allow you to maintain a discrete list of events for each website, and also let you build separate visitor insights for keywords, content sections, content types, or other taxonomies for each website.

To organize your events by website, you will need to set up a customer site in Profile Manager for each of your websites.

Setting up a customer site

Use the following steps to set up a customer site:

  1. Sign into the Profile Manager interface, and then click the Admin tab.
  2. Click the Manage configuration data link.
  3. Click the Customer sites link.
  4. Click the Add new customer site link.
  5. Under Customer Site Details, enter values in the following fields for the new Customer Site:
    • Name - The name of the website.
    • External ID or Site ID - An identifier that you choose. Acquia Lift can create events for the corresponding customer website that you create in Profile Manager. When a visitor performs this action on a particular customer site, this External ID or Site ID is included with it.
    • URL - The URL of the website, entered as a regular expression. For example, ^http?://www.example.com/.* means any URL that begins with either http:///www.example.com/ or https://www.example.com/.

      You can also use regular expressions to map multiple URLs to the same customer site. For more information about regular expressions, you can use this regular expressions cheat sheet as a reference guide.

  6. Click Save.

Viewing customer sites

To view your customer sites, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Profile Manager interface, and then click the Admin tab.
  2. Click the Manage configuration data link.
  3. Click the Customer sites link.

Profile Manager displays a list of the customer sites that you have created.

Viewing insights by customer site

After you have created one or more customer sites, the fields that you have set up to rank in the Insights tab — such as content section, keywords, and content type — will be categorized by website. To display a visitor's actions organized by customer site, use the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Profile Manager interface, and then click the People tab.
  2. Click Show Results.
  3. Find the visitor profile that you want to examine, and then click anywhere on its entry in the table.
  4. On the Person Details page, click the Insights tab.
  5. People Insights tab

  6. Use the Customer Site list to display the rankings information across the different sites this particular visitor has accessed.

Deleting a customer site

To delete a customer site, use the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Profile Manager interface.
  2. Delete, or associate with another website, any goals belonging to this website.
  3. Delete, or associate with another website, any events belonging to this website.
  4. In the Profile Manager interface, click the Admin tab.
  5. Click the Manage configuration data link.
  6. Click the Customer sites link.
  7. In the table of customer sites, find the customer site that you want to delete, and in the Actions column, click its Delete link.

Sending customer site information with APIs

If you have multiple customer websites, you can pass data from each website to the Acquia Lift service by using the REST, File Import, and JavaScript APIs. For more information about using the APIs to do this, see the following pages:
