Remove IP addresses from raw beacon logs

This option is generally used to preserve the privacy of users whose clients send beacon data.

mPulse gets your end users’ IP addresses from the TCP/IP headers between the browser and the CDN, for example, the Akamai edge server. From this point, mPulse uses the IP address to identify your end user’s Internet service provider and to determine their network connection type such as cable or dial-up. Once mPulse has this information, the IP address is written to the raw beacon log in Amazon S3.

How to

  1. In mPulse, click Central.
  2. In the left pane, click Apps, then double-click the app that you want to apply this option to.
  3. Click Beacons.
  4. Select the Strip IP Address From Raw Beacon Logs checkbox, then click OK to save the configuration.
