The Dashboard simply provides a quick overall impression of what is actually happening in your SAP Portal - currently and in the previous three months. From handy user stats to a fresh analysis of your SAP Portal page activity, it’s just like the gauges in your car. Here is what you will find:
User Statistics: Number of users vs logins and reach
At a quick glance, discover how many unique users have logged into your SAP Portal in the last three months, along with a projected trend.
- How many users log in per month?
- How often do they come back?
- What your forecast is for the current month?
- Is this user trend going up or down?
Content Details: Number of pageviews, total PCD vs active pages
- How many pageviews do you have per month?
- What is your forecast and where is the trend going?
- How many PCD pages you have in total?
- Total PCD pages vs pages that are actually being used?
If you are constantly adding pages to your portal but have no idea how many of these are actually getting used, the Active vs Total PCD pages graph is essential. The highest we have actually seen the number of pages being used vs the total number of pages in the portal was 25%. Typically this number is in the 5%-15% range! How would that affect your portal performance? Why not identify all the important pages, the ones actually being used - and maximize efficiency in your SAP Portal by focusing on content that really matters?
The Traffic Report illustrates pageviews in relation to the number of users and logins for a specific time frame. The broad filtering capabilities help you to identify the actual behavior of your audience.
24 hours view, weekdays
What is your portal traffic based on a 24 hours view? Use this feature to gain helpful insight into scheduling maintenance windows during off peak hours. Also combine this information with traffic per weekday to figure out how many users logged in last weekend?
Filter by traffic on specific content and users
Learn if a newly implemented "Area" has a significant impact on your overall user visitation. Apply the filter feature to illustrate traffic on a page or multiple pages.
Server Nodes Report
Does your load balancing work properly? Watch the capacity per server node based on users, logins and pageviews over a given time frame.
Quickly determine your peak loads
Need help to determine the sizing of your SAP Portal? The Peak Loads report helps your IT identify at a quick glance, the maximum number of concurrent users, logins, or pageviews per hour, minute, or even seconds. It simply just takes the Traffic report to the next level in granularity. And once your IT can establish the maximum user load, then sizing your portal accordingly becomes a breeze.
Traffic reports include:
- Traffic (hourly, daily, weekly, weekday, 24 hours)
- New Users
- Server Nodes
- Pageviews per Login
- Duration per Login
- Peak Load

Additional questions the Page Report will help you answer
The Page Report is extremely useful and gives you access to some of the most important pieces of information you need for a successful SAP Portal.
- What content should I be focusing or not focusing on for the absolute best use of my man hours?
- Are my users coming back to specific pages for a second or third time?
- Which pages are being clicked on at all and how much?
- How many pages you actually have in your SAP Portal vs how many are actually being used. (typically this is in the 5%-15% range)
- Which pages are being viewed and by which department, group, role, etc.
And armed with these questions above, you can then go back to your users and ask them why certain pages are hot or not. Then rinse and repeat.

Click Path Reports
Discover specifically where your users are coming from - and more importantly, where they were going.
Previous and Next Pages
Does a specific page in your portal interest you? How many users choose this page as their landing page? Or where did they enter the portal before they came to this page?
And when they left the above page, where did they go? Did they go to another page in the portal or log out? The Click Paths report shows the complete journey!
Click Paths reports include:
- Clicks Paths Overview
- Paths to Page
- Previous/Next Pages
User Activity Reports
Learn more about your community – Click Stream leverages the SAP Portal UME (User Management Engine) to gather information about users and their groups, roles, companies, countries, etc.
The SAP standard PAR (Portal Activity Report) does not use the UME to retrieve country information from LDAP. Instead, the PAR attempts to map countries based on IP addresses. This may work on a website as tracking IP addresses is potentially your best option. But within an intranet environment (such as the SAP Portal) where who knows how many users share the same local and/or internal IP addresses, the accuracy of user information can be highly distorted. Leveraging the UME from within the SAP Portal enables Click Stream absolute accuracy on portal statistics.
Top Users, Countries
Who are your top users? What are their favorite pages? Which country is the most active in your portal? How about a combination of all the above? Use the filter feature in any report to combine groups, roles and pages to really narrow down your search!
For European work council, keep in mind Click Stream has the option to anonymize user data. A simple check in a box records users nameless with no way to track back. And don't forget, Click Stream also stores your valuable company data in your own secure database, not the world wide web!
User Activity reports include:
- Last Logins
- Top Users
- Currently Active Users
- Top Roles
- Top Groups
- Countries History
- US States
- My Locale
- Plus any of your custom LDAP attributes

Real Time Reporting Applied
If you are like many of our clients, introducing new pages into the SAP Portal is a regular occurrence. But aren't you curious on your initial user experience after introducing one of these new pages?
Upon implementing a new page over the weekend, one client in particular would watch their users reaction to the new page first thing Monday morning when employees logged in. They were able to observe - in real time, users response to the latest changes. IT could not only physically watch what people were clicking on when they got in – but how they were clicking around within the newly implemented page.
The Real Time Report gave the IT department considerable insight into their user patterns and immediate feedback on content development projects.
Have you ever needed more granular information on your pages rather than just page views? Did you ever wonder which iViews your users are actively using? This desire to have a more in-depth analysis of exactly what is happening on every page within the SAP Portal is why Click Stream now monitors each users iView clicks – delivered on an easy to read report.
Data Collected & Recorded
The first click in an iView is recorded per page view. All subsequent clicks will be ignored until the next visit to this page. This smart report also supports Flash objects in recording.
Top iViews and All PCD Views Reports
The "Top iViews" report is a summary of the iViews which were clicked most often. The “All PCD iViews” report is a summary of all iViews from pages which are listed in your “All PCD Pages” report.
The iViews report includes:
- Top iViews
- All PCD iViews
