About automatic page groups

mPulse creates page groups automatically for new apps.

Automatic Page Groups (APG) make it easier to get up and running with mPulse by automatically defining page groups for newly created mPulse apps. After you’ve set up mPulse on your site and there’s a steady flow of beacons, mPulse scans the data to identify common performance characteristics and automatically creates page groups for your new web app based on traffic.

How are automated page groups defined?

Once mPulse has collected 250k beacons, it uses URL Regular Expressions to identify pages that logically belong together and automatically defines the page group for your web app configuration.

The automatic page group functionality is applied for an app when all of these conditions are met:
  • New app created after the release of APG
  • No page groups previously defined for the app
  • A minimum of 250,000 beacons received for the app
Note: This process runs only one time for a new app.

Where do they appear and how are they applied to my traffic?

All page groups, including the ones mPulse defines for you, appear in your web app configuration on the URLs tab. These page groups function just like manually created page groups. You can modify and delete these automatically created page groups, just as you would a page group that you defined yourself. mPulse doesn’t overwrite existing page groups.

How will I know when they’re ready?

Once mPulse creates your page groups, you’ll see a pop-up notification on your mPulse Home page.

Note: A particular URL path must receive at least 1.5% of the total app traffic in order for APG to create an associated page group.
