This article is about Universal Analytics, which is going away. It's critical that you migrate your Universal Analytics property settings to Google Analytics 4, or you will begin to lose data on July 1, 2023 (July 1, 2024 for Analytics 360 properties). Learn how to migrate your settings.

View Full Page URL In Reports

By default, the data in your reports includes only the Request URI and not the domain name:

URL of page:
Request URI: /foldername/page.html
Domain name:

If you'd like to see the domain name as well as the Request URI in your reports, create an Advanced filter for your view with the following settings:

Filter Type: Custom filter > Advanced
Field A: Hostname
Extract A: (.*)
Field B: Request URI
Extract B: (.*)
Output To: Request URI
Constructor: $A1$B1

Note that creating URL rewrite filters like the one described above can affect Analytics' ability to match your goals properly.

If you're using Analytics filters to rewrite your URLs, you need to make sure that your goal settings reflect these changes. Like all filters, URL-rewrite filters are applied to the raw data coming into your account, before goals are processed. As a result, your goal and funnel URLs should reflect the final, rewritten format of the URL. For example:

If your site's URL:


is rewritten by a filter to look like:


then your goal should match

/download/file and not /directory/download/file.html

If you use filters to rewrite the URLs that appear in your reports (e.g., in the All Pages report), the links in your reports based on the rewritten URLs may not work.
