What are the options for grouping by different URL properties?

When building a Metric, Funnel or Dimensionality Card in FullStory, there is an option to group results by properties such as browser, country, URL, and others. If you choose to group by URL, you have a few options for grouping including URL, URL Fragment, URL Host, URL Path, and URL Query.

Depending on which property you choose, FullStory will automatically group results for your visualization to match the selected property. 

URL

If you choose to group by URL, FullStory will look for exact matches for the entire URL. Each unique URL will be grouped separately and only exact matches will be grouped together.

URL Fragment

A URL fragment, sometimes called an anchor, usually appears at the end of a URL and has a hash (#) before the fragment. 

Example URL: https://help.fullstory.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020623574#code-first

In this example, "code-first" would be the URL fragment. 

If you choose to group by URL Fragment, FullStory will group by common URL fragments.

URL Host

A URL Host includes the top-level domain, domain name, and any sub domains. 

Example URL: https://help.fullstory.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020623574#code-first

In this example, "help.fullstory.com" would be the URL host. 

If you choose to group by URL Host, FullStory will group by common URL hosts.

URL Path

A URL Path starts right after the first slash (/) after the host name in the URL. All paths start with a slash.

Example URL: https://www.fullstory.com/digital-experience-intelligence-platform/

In this example, "/digital-experience-intelligence-platform" would be the URL path. 

If you choose to group by URL Path, FullStory will group by common URL paths. It will also exclude any fragments or queries included in the URL.

URL Query

A URL Query is a piece of information appended to your URL. All queries start with a question mark.

Example URL: https://www.fullstory.com/digital-experience-intelligence-platform/?utm_source=google

In this example, "utm_source=google" would be the URL query. 

If you choose to group by URL Query, FullStory will group by common URL queries.
