Using Google Analytics to collect and analyze usage data

You can use Google Analytics to collect and analyze usage data. Google Analytics enables BMC customers to track their activity in BMC Helix Digital Workplace without sharing it with third parties.  The following data is currently available for analytics:

  • Technology data such as browser, operating system, and devices used.
  • User-specific data such as location, visited pages, traffic by time of day, source of traffic, and search keywords.

Custom tags in Google Analytics are not supported.

Before you begin

To enable Google Analytics, you must specify the Tracking ID. For an overview on Google Analytics, and to get a tracking ID, see Get started with Analytics Open link .

To set up data collection by using your Google Analytics account

After you create your Google Analytics account, configure your account by clicking  on the Analytics page.


BMC recommends using separate Tracking IDs for your test and production environments. This will help segregate the data used for analytics.
