i am trying to setup a reports that shows all the URL that were used within the URL Category "Media Sharing" - the issue is that CSR offers 4 different Fields for the Category Information - i never know if the Category "Media Sharing" will appear in Category Information 1 or Category Information 2, 3 or 4. It´s also not possible to build a relation between those Filter Groups - so i can´t work with "or contains"
do you have an idea how to solve this issue ?
I had contacted an colleague from development team and got a reply. He forwarded me a mail thread which includes a support ticket with almost identical description. So I guess it was you.
Also if you have received the reply in a ticket, I will answer here for documentation purpose.
Would be nice if you can mark this as resolved/closed afterwards.
Regarding the question, there is NO "OR/AND" filter available when doing the filtering for queries.
The ONLY option for now is to use a "negate" but this is absolutely not recommended!!
Example: if you have 10 categories, you need to add 9 negate to each category, i.e. "does not contain" and so on. This will definitively have an impact on performance.
You should be able to run the CSR report with Category 1 = "Media Sharing" or Category = 2 "Media Sharing", etc. The reason for this, as I understand it due to the multiple categories a url could be in.
docs.google.com is categorized as follows (as of today):
- Personal Network Storage
- Interactive Web Applications
Category 2 = Interactive Web Applications in this case, so running the report looking for category 1 as interactive web applications would fail.
Is that what you were looking for?
my first response is already the information from engineering team.
"OR" operator in this case is not available, means you cannot build this logic which the OP wishes to have. Since you never know on which of the 4 positions the needed category is, it is not possible to create a query like this.
