Virtual report suite component curation

Virtual report suites can be curated to include and exclude Analysis Workspace.

Here is a video on component curation:

Changes were made to which components administrators and non-administrators can see in curated Workspace projects and curated virtual reports suites. Previously, anyone could see non-curated components by clicking Show all Components. The updated curation experience allows for more fine-grained control over which components are visible.

To enable component curation,

  1. Go to Analytics > Components > Virtual report suites > Create new virtual report suite.

  2. After defining the Settings, click the Components tab.

  3. Select the checkbox Enable Customization of Virtual report suite components:

    note note
    If component customization is enabled, the virtual report suite is accessible only in Analysis Workspace and is not accessible in the following:
    • Data Warehouse
    • Report Builder
    • Activity Map
    • Analytics Reporting API

    Once checked, you can add the components you’d like to be included in the virtual report suite by dragging the applicable components from the “excluded components” column to the “included components” column. The components that can be included and excluded are:

    • Dimensions
    • Metrics
    • Segments
    • Date Ranges
    note note
    There is no need to share curated components (segments, calculated metrics, date ranges). They will always be visible in Analysis Workspace if they are curated for the virtual report suite, even if they are not shared.
  4. Additionally, you can filter or search the components and add the entire filtered selection to the included column by clicking Add All.

You can change the display names of included components specific to the virtual report suite. For example, if you want to include Page Name in the virtual report suite, but want to rename it to a more mobile friendly context, you can change it to App Screens. The new name is displayed in Analysis Workspace whenever this virtual report suite is used.

In Analysis Workspace, click the information icon for any included component to reveal the original name of the renamed component:

Component Groups section_483BEC76F49E46ADAAA03F0A12E48426

Use component groups to make bulk component additions to your virtual report suite. For example, if you’d like to import a default set of components specific to mobile app analysis, select the mobile app group. A corresponding set of dimensions and metrics (already renamed) are automatically added to the virtual report suite Included list.
