The Sessions section of Gravity allows you to browse the recorded sessions and have a first glimpse into how your application is used.
By default, all the sessions ever collected are displayed and grouped by environments (user/test).
Filters are the first way to make sense of these data:
You can easily find sessions containing a specific page or a sequence of pages. It helps you focus your exploration of a workflow.
You can only filter on pages recorded by the collector. Free-form filters are not (yet) possible.
How about URLs with a dynamic segment?
When you need to filter on a "type" of pages rather than a "specific" page, you can replace the flexible part of the URL with a wildcard character ("*").
A common example would be filtering on generic "product pages" (
/products/<any product>) rather than "a specific product page" (
You may want to give more business context to your sessions. For example, you would like to work only on sessions coming from a specific type of users (like "paying users" or "connected users", ...). Gravity allows you to add traits to your sessions so you can easily retrieve data for a given context.
To learn about how to add those traits, please see the gravity-data-collector documentation
Once you have collected a few sessions with traits set, this area will appear in the filter section:
Select a trait and a value to display only sessions matching the filter.
A trait value can only be a number, a string or a boolean (
true/false). You can not give a complex value to a trait, like an object or an array.
Note that the value is limited to 255 characters.
On a session page, you will find every information to reproduce the journey of a user of your application.
The pages they visited are displayed in chronological order. For each page visit, the list of user actions is displayed. You can expand a user action to display its metadata (see Getting Started - Metadata).
