Overview

Page filtering is a powerful feature in the ObservePoint reporting tools. All Audit reports now have new page-level filters that allow you to filter by initial, final URLs with their corresponding status codes. These filters allow for more flexibility and give you the ability to filter out any unwanted items such as redirects and any page status codes. We also now support regex filters as well.

Initial and Final URL Filters

You have the option to select both the Initial and Final URLs in the search bar. If you deselect both, ObservePoint will automatically re-enable the Initial URL filter. Additionally, you can utilize regular expressions (Regex) for custom page filtering, allowing you to search for specific status codes and more.

When applying Initial or Final URL filters, you'll notice 1 or 2 toggles at the top of each Audit report. Clicking on these toggles will reveal either "contains" or "does not contain" filters.

Page Filters

You have the ability to filter pages based on their load time.

You can filter pages by their status codes, encompassing both initial and final status codes. These filters offer the choice to filter by Successful status codes (200s), Redirects (300s), and Broken status codes (0, 400s, and 500s). Furthermore, an additional filter for Broken/Successful pages is available, allowing you to easily distinguish between successful and broken pages.

You can search for specific Initial and/or Final status codes in the search field under each type.

You can apply a searchable filter based on the Page Title.

You can use a filter to search by Page Size.

When you choose the Page Size filter, a modal will appear, allowing you to specify the page size in megabytes (MB).

You can use a filter to search by Number of Redirects. It will populate a modal where you specify the minimum and maximum number of redirects. The modal is in the same format as the Page Size filter.

You can use a single filter to include or exclude items from your audit setup by selecting the "Not/Match URLs from Audit Setup" option in all relevant reports. This feature allows you to focus solely on the Final URLs defined in the audit setup and ignore those that redirect outside of the specified criteria.

You can simply choose "Pages with Broken Links" to filter for pages that have broken links.

Regex Filtering

Filter for a Word in a URL:

If you want to find a specific word (e.g., "example") in a URL:

example

This pattern will match the word "example" anywhere in the URL.

Filter for Specific Path:

To filter for a specific path in a URL (e.g., "/products/123"):

/products/123

This pattern will match the exact path "/products/123" in the URL.

Filter for URLs with Specific Domains:

To filter for URLs that belong to specific domains (e.g., "example.com"):

https://(www\.)?(example\.com)

Explanation:

https://: Matches the "https://" protocol.

(www.)?: Matches an optional "www." subdomain.

This regex pattern will match URLs that belong to "example.com"
