About

Features are optional WSP (Windows SharePoint) files that can be installed in the SharePoint servers to provide additional functionality. These often provide custom web parts or other desirable customizations.

The Webtrends Advanced Analytics WSP Feature provides the ability to add the tracking JavaScript files to the environment via server-side scripting. The code is primarily responsible for adding a <script> block to the pages that pulls in the webtrends.load.js file which provides the tag configuration, and then loads the additional Webtrends related scripts.

This can be scoped at the Farm, Web Application, Site Collection, or Web scope.

Note:

The original Features were created using SharePoint 2013 and contain references to 2013 file names. This is inconsequential, and the same package is supported on SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 (classic view) environments.

Farm Scope

When using the Farm scope, the feature is available in the Central Administration > System Settings > Manage farm features page, and when enabled, code inserted into the entire Farm.

Web Application Scope

When using the Web Application scope, the feature is available in theCentral Administration > Application Management > Manage web applications > Manage Features page, and when enabled, inserted into the fully qualified domain for the specified web application.

Site Collection Scope

When using the Site Collection scope, the feature is available in theSite Collection > Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features page, and when enabled, inserted into the Site Collection and any sub sites associated with the collection.

Web Scope

When using the Site scope, the feature is available in theSite > Site Settings > Site Actions > Manage site features page, and when enabled, inserted into the just the specified Site. If the site is a Site Collection, sub sites are not automatically tagged.


Note:

WSP Features utilize the same set of JavaScript files regardless of the scoping chosen. As such, any required custom configurations for some sites, such as unique DCSIDs on a dev web application, must accomplished using JavaScript code in the webtrends.load.js file.
