Reference Guide

Views enable users to customize the data processed and displayed by AFS-BO. They are used by several applications inside the Back Office. The following description uses the Analytics application to explain the behavior of the Views.

When configured for a statistical report in AFS-BO, it delineates the scope of the query logs recorded for a search service. With a view, an AFS-BO user can display accurate specific analytics per data type, keyword, etc. Specializing the performance analytics of the AFS Query Engine relies on one or more specific keywords, AFS filters in place, AFS-QE logs, or other custom parameters.

Views can be created and configured from the Setup menu of each service.
