How do I search for URLs?

URLs consist of multiple distinct parts. Understanding the components of URLs will make searching with OmniSearch easier.

OmniSearch gives the option to search for very specific things by allowing you to search for each of the pieces or the whole thing. FullStory will index each component of the URL (the host, all paths, and any queries), and then you can search for individual paths or query params. For example, if your URL has the path path/to/site, FullStory will index following paths:

  • /path/to/site
  • /to/site
  • /site

You can do a "Starts with" path search for each of the tokens above and it will match.

So, let’s say you’d like to create a search for the following URL: www.example.com/path/resource?id=123#section-id.

In OmniSearch, you have the option to search for the specific URL using Visited URL is www.example.com/path/resource?id=123#section-id, or you could search for one or more of the URL components:

  • Visited URL (host) is www.example.com
  • Visited URL (path) starts with /path/resource
  • Visited URL (query) is ?id=123
  • Visited URL (fragment) is #section-id
