Inside my analytics profile, I have to aggregate data from URLs when they are on separate rows because
example.com/path is different from
example.com/path/. This is a huge usability headache, so I figured there would be many solutions to this issue already. I followed what this guy did here and created a filter to rename the URI.
He creates a regex
^(/[a-z0-9/_\-]*[^/])$ that matches alphanumeric, underscore, and dash characters and doesn't match those that end with a slash. The URI is output as the same value with a slash, assuming it matches the regex. I have tried both this regex, and the same regex with the slashes escaped
^(\/[a-z0-9\/_\-]*[^\/])$ as this online regex tester instructed me to do, but my reports are not updating with the new filter.
When I send traffic to
example.com/path/ with the new filter saved, it is still showing up as two records.
Did I miss a step?
