Web Analytics Solutions

Web Analytics is used for the purpose of identifying the way users interact with web pages. WSO2 Identity Server supports the integration of both Google Analytics and Mixpanel. Getting the Identity Service to fire events at different pages is easy enough. You can choose to enable either or both of the analytics services.

Setting up web analytics

  1. Download the samples-is repository and extract its content.

  2. Open the config.jsp file in the analytics-extensions directory and replace the relevant token string of the analytics service that needs to be enabled.

    1. Get a Google Analytics token.

      1. Create a Google Analytics project.
      2. Go to Admin > Tracking Info > Tracking Code.
      3. Look for the token of your project inside, gtag('config', '<TOKEN>');.
    2. Get a Mixpanel token.

      1. Create a Mixpanel project.
      2. Go to Settings > Set up Mixpanel.
      3. Look for the token of your project inside, mixpanel.init("<TOKEN>");.
  3. Replace the following files inside the <IS_HOME> directory with the respective files in the analytics-extensions directory.

    Original file File to replace

  4. Copy the analytics.jsp and config.jsp files inside the analytics-extensions directory to both the authenticationendpoint/include and accountrecoveryendpoint/include directories in the <IS_HOME> directory.
