I'm using Sitecore 9 update 2.

I'm trying to see if hitting a jss endpoint (layout service endpoint specifically) captures analytics data just by virtue of hitting the endpoint or not.

I also have a custom endpoint that I'm trying to use Sitecore's tracker in (`Sitecore.Analytics.Tracker.Current`). I planned on using the `experience profile` in order to view the results however I'm seeing a delay to get user data to show up in there (~30 minutes) even when I force a session to end which should start collecting the user's session data.

Is there some kind of dev/local mode I can configure experience profile to use that can show visitor data in real time? If there isn't is there a way to see real time analytic data in my xconnect site as it happens?

    I believe that rebuilding of XConnect Search index could do the trick for you. Please try to follow this guideline doc.sitecore.net/developers/xp/xconnect/xconnect-search-indexer/…. You see data only when they are indexed. I will post more detailed answer once you confirm that it is working for you. – Peter Procházka Jul 26 '18 at 18:00
  • Another option would be to decrease interval which XConnect Search Indexer is indexing data. I don't know whether there is setting like this as I couldn't find any mention of this quickly in documentation. You could check in config files. Maybe you find something – Peter Procházka Jul 26 '18 at 18:21
  • By default the indexer will show the data within seconds. It is only in an unhealthy system that this wouldn’t be the case. – eglasius Jul 26 '18 at 18:24

    @PeterProchazka I'm not sure why but after doing that it looks like data is showing up as soon as I abandon my session after navigating through a few normal pages. Assuming updates are coming through it looks like hitting JSS's layout endpoint does not cause analytics to be captured though. – Teeknow Jul 26 '18 at 19:39

    @Teeknow Gladly. I will post detailed answer tomorrow. – Peter Procházka Jul 26 '18 at 19:48
