Deployment Options

Webtrends Advanced Analytics WSP Feature

Webtrends offers a WSP Feature to deploy the tracking JavaScript to your environment. This can be scoped to the Farm, Web Application, Site Collection, or Individual Sites as needed. The configuration of the code is typically handled by consulting prior to delivery, but can be altered on the servers directly after deployment if necessary.

Note:

This method is most commonly used for SharePoint On-Premises environments.

Note:

WSP Features appear to be the only method of adding the tracking JavaScript to My Sites.

Tag Administrator

The Webtrends Legacy SharePoint Tag Administrator is a precreate IIS Website that allows you to bulk deploy and configure tracking across your environment with a single UI. This tool retreives a list of your site collections and deploys the Webtrends SharePoint Tag Installer App/Add-in to the desired collections and apply app configurations in bulk.

Note:

This method recommended if use of a WSP Feature is not desired.

App Catalog

The App Catalog method involves uploading the Webtrends SharePoint Tag Installer App/Add-in to the tenant app catalog and then either deploying via managed paths directly to a site collection in the Add an app page.

Note:

Due to the inability of an Add-in to apply the user custom action directly to the site collection during deployment, this method requires an additional enable step on each site collection after deployment. For this reason, the Webtrends Legacy SharePoint Tag Administrator was created.

Manual Tagging

In rare occasions customers wish to apply the tracking code to their master pages. With this method you edit the host the tracking JavaScript files in a desired location and then point to the files with a <script> line within the desired master pages.

Note:

This is generally not recommended.
