Changing the property which identifies an installation in reports

Changing the property which identifies an installation in reports

Dashboard Reports

By default, reports use the Client ID property as an identifier for an installation / user. This may be changed in some reports to use a different property as the identifier. When doing so, multiple installations sharing the same value of the selected property will be grouped as a single installation. For example, if I choose to group by the License Key property, two installations using the same license key will be counted as one installation in the reports.

To change the identifier property, click on the “Group By” tab in the report toolbar, and select a property from the list.

 The properties available for grouping are:

  • Client ID (default)
  • Machine ID
  • License Key
  • Custom properties of type 3

If an installation does not have a value set for the selected identifier property, that installation will not be included in the report. 

NOTE: The Machine ID property was introduced in version 5 of the Usage Intelligence SDK. When grouping by Machine ID, clients using an older version of the SDK will therefore not be included in the report.

The following is a list of reports that support the 'Group By' functionality:

  • Distribution Reports
    • Product Metrics
    • OS & Platform
    • Hardware Architecture
    • Java Environment
    • Geography
  • Lifetime Event Usage
  • Custom Report Builder
  • Custom Timeline Builder
