I have a question regarding a requirement for a client of ours. The client has a number of offices around the world. Traffic coming from these offices (specific IP addresses/ranges) should not be excluded from analytics (so no easy ExcludeRobots configuration).
However, in the Experience Analytics reporting, internal traffic coming from these offices should be excluded by default. A specific (custom?) report needs to be available to view analytics details for all internal traffic.
I'm thinking of creating a specific "Channel type" "Internal traffic" for this, with the different offices around the world as "Channels" below the "Channel Type". Did anyone ever implement something like this? Any other (better) ideas to meet the requirements mentioned above?
What would the technical implementation look like? Probably some pipelines that need to be customized? Can someone elaborate on this?
On the reporting side:
How can I filter out all visits from a "Channel type" or specific "Channel" for all default reports in Experience Analytics?
How can I create a custom report that only shows the visits from the newly created Channel type "Internal traffic" and underlying offices (as channels)? Is creating such a custom report straightforward?
Any other things I need to do (for example related to excluding internal traffic from the Path Analyzer)?
Thanks in advance!
