Default HTTP Request Data Collector

Default HTTP Request Data Collector


Can anyone please advise on the below.

I have amended the “Default HTTP Request Data Collector” to capture specific headers e.g. IP address and browser type.

Is there a way I can use this “Data Collector” functionality to capture the mentioned headers from ALL requests passing through the system and possibly produce a report or export to csv?

I can see the captured header details whilst looking viewing the ‘Periodic Snapshots’ which is only a small proportion of the overall calls.


Many thanks

It is possible to use the collector to collect headers from every request.  You would need the Transaction Analytics component of the platform to collect this data and allow you to analyse it.


Warm regards,

Hi Peter,

Thanks for getting back to me.
Was trying to find out if there was away of achieving the same objective without using the Transaction Analytics component.
Will try check if its possible to get the trial version of this component.

Kind regards
