Real-time reports configuration

Administrative steps for setting up Real-Time reports.

Setting up real-time reports within Reports & Analytics consists of selecting the report suite and configuring up to 3 reports for it.

  1. Select the report suite for which you want to enable real-time reports.

    Navigate to Analytics > Reports > View All Reports > Site Metrics > Real-Time and select the report suite from the drop-down at the top:

    If you try to view real-time reports for a report suite that has not been set up for real-time reporting, a message displays that enables you to set up the report suite.

  2. Click Configure (gear icon) to run the Report Suite Manager.

    (Also available under Analytics > Admin > Report Suites > Edit Settings > Real-Time.)

  3. Turn on the Enable Real-Time setting.

  4. Set up real-time data collection for up to three reports, with one metric and three dimensions or classifications per report.

    For information on supported real-time metrics and dimensions, see Supported Metrics and Dimensions.

    If you have created classifications, they appear indented under the dimension for which they are defined:


    For a single Real-Time report, we do not currently support enabling duplicate dimensions, even if a different classification is selected for each dimension.

    For more information about classifications, see About Classifications.


    Some dimensions, such as “Search Keyword” or “Product”, do not persist in Real-Time like they do elsewhere in Adobe Analytics. When you select a non-persistent metric, this warning appears:

  5. Click Save or Save and View Report.

    After this initial report setup, it can take up to 20 minutes for the data to begin streaming. From then on, data is immediately available. For information on viewing Real-Time reports, see Run a Real-Time Report.

  6. By default, all users have access to Real-Time reports.
