What is a session?

Une session est une suite d’évènements provenant d’un parcours d’un utilisateur.

It is a series of events of a user journey.

Events are visits to a webpage or a click on a specific item (buttons, links …).

What use is it to me?

This tab displays a list of sessions, each element itself contains a list of events, with the possibility to filter the list by date, by operating system, by browser, by URL …

This tab is used to analyze each event to analyze the origin of an anomaly (for example a too slow request).

For each element of the list we can see:

  • The date and time of the session
  • The duration of the session
  • The sponsor (direct access or url part of the website)
  • Geolocation coordinates
  • The browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari)
  • The operating system (Windows, Linux, MACOSX)
  • The size of the screen (width x height)
  • A Weasel icon if a bug has been reported on this website

First fill out the form at the top of the page and click the Apply button.

With the filters we have all sessions that have the following details:

  • Visits between 1 May 2018 (10 am) and 3 May 2018 (10 am)
  • the browser is Chrome
  • the system used is Linux 64-bit
  • each session contains at least one alert

Now that our number of sessions has decreased, we can find our course: for our example, this is the first of the list. So we click on it to get the details of this session.

A new page appears and there are two parts:

With the first one on top, we can check if it was our session (IP, country …). More information by clicking on the icon

The third tab is to view the user’s sessions and convert all steps of the session to a test.

We do not need steps click / visit / input . So we will filter everything with the buttons

From now on, only the requests are displayed and it is sufficient to go down until you find a alert.

Clicking on the icon , a pop-up window opens with various information about the alert.
