AFS identifies the web browser used for a query using the standard recovery of the User-Agent header in the HTTP request. It is very interesting to propagate this information to AFS. AFS use them for statistical purposes, particularly to automatically detect bots that could crawl the web site.

If this information is not propagated then:

  • bots associated statistics will not be displayed in the Back Office,
  • preventing bots from accessing to search domain will not be available.
