I am designing Experience Analytics report via Sitecore Rocks.
Could anyone please explain to me the purpose of duplicated segments as shown in the following picture? Some can be used to display result while some can't.
The duplicated segment item is expected behavior in Sitecore 9 as it has introduced FlexibleDimension.
It is written at the improvement section in the release note of Sitecore 9 Initial Release.
“Flexible dimensions give Sitecore the ability to record domain specific metrics. The previous approach to dimensions is still available, but will be deprecated in a future version of Sitecore.”
In Content Editor, each item under Pages and Visits (under
/sitecore/system/Marketing Control Panel/Experience Analytics/Dimensions) is all “duplicated”, one is based on Dimension template and one is based on FlexibleDimension template.
This information can be easily identified in Sitecore Rocks by hovering mouse pointer over each Segment item.
