To get started using Liferay Analytics Cloud, the first thing you need is an invitation. Liferay invites the Analytics Cloud owner (the person who purchased the product) to your company’s Analytics Cloud project. If you’re not the owner but still need access to the project, ask an Analytics Cloud system administrator to invite you.
Your invitation links you to the Analytics Cloud sign in page, which prompts you for your Liferay credentials.
First time users are directed to the Workspace creation page. On this page, name your workspace, select a server location for hosting your data, and review the terms and conditions. After agreeing to the terms and conditions, create the workspace. A page appears with a message stating that your Analytics Cloud environment is being set up. Next your project home page appears.
Subsequent visits to https://analytics.liferay.com/ direct you to the Workspace welcome page, where you can select your workspace or any other accessible workspaces for working on projects.
The project home page describes and links to each key component page:
Segments: Aggregate customers into Segments based on similar profiles and behavior data. Track Segment growth, discover patterns of interest, and improve their level of engagement with your brand. Discover your target audience.
Individuals: Learn how individual customers interact with your Sites. View holistic profiles that combine customer’s profile data with their page and asset interactions for deep insight into their level of engagement.
Pages: Combine path analytics and traditional page analytics to understand how customers interact with your content. Measure individual web page performance to improve digital experiences.
Assets: Track and visualize engagement levels of digital assets such as forms, blogs, web content, documents, and media to ensure that assets are driving conversions.
Data Sources: Integrate your customer profile and behavior data from multiple Liferay DXP sites and custom data sources.
Additional shortcuts and overviews are displayed on the right:
Add Data Source: Quick access to adding data sources for customer profiles and behavior data.
Usage: Compares the number of Individuals and Pages you’re analyzing to your Liferay Analytics Cloud Plan.
User Management: Invite users and assign permissions.
The Liferay Analytics Cloud icon () at the top of the navigation panel takes you to the home page from wherever you are in the application. Beneath it are several other links:
People: Learn more about your customers by analyzing them individually as Individuals or aggregated as Segments.
Touchpoints: Analyze page and asset performance and view paths users take to your pages.
User icon: Switch projects or sign out.
Settings: Provides options for managing data sources, users, and updating your Analytics Cloud usage.
If no data sources are connected, a message near the top of the main area tells you so and links you to the page for adding data sources. Adding data sources is next.
