Parameter with or without 'no cut'?

If i want to filter out some parameters and include some parameters, what is the best way, 'no cut' or some other way?

We always choose the "cut after" option and put in a monitored URL with defining the parameters in focus as miscalleanous parameters.

Best regards,

No cut approach will give you URLs with all parameters and make you write regular expressions to filter some of them out that would bring high load to your AMD.

In this case (Am i right @Johan G. ?) There is a finite number of parameters but they are unknown (5-20) but also one that we do not want to track so basically we want "no cut - but drop XYZ".

Any suggestion on how to approach this?

Thank you for the answers and now "cut after" option is on again.

We have the cut after ? and then it comes crap and then after that a = and after that the parameter that we want to filter on comes.

Thanks

Normally parameters will show up like http://something.com/page.html?parametername=Para...


With the "cut after ?" you will only get http://something.com/page.html as a operation name.


If you want to get the parameter as well you will switch to the "Dimensions, Metrics and Attributes" (hope I got it correct) tap in the Software Service and define a rule for a miscalleanous parameter. This can be by "searching for parametername" or "searching for parametername and value", after defining this the URI should show up as http://something.com/page.html?parametername=Parametervalue
again (depending a little bit what you defined in the miscalleanous parameter).
