I am running a website that every customer has a different query string attached to the url plus one random guid attached at the end:


I would like to measure how many page views I have using only the cust query string parameter discarding the random part of the string.

The regex for this job would be cust=(.*?)& but I don't know how to apply this in google analytics

You can implement that in Google Analytics with a "search and replace view filter".

Basically you want to implement a view filter that removes the random guid. You would have to write a regular expression to match the guid and replace it with nothing.
