With the latest OWOX BI update, the session data tables ‘owoxbi_sessions_‘ contain the new field,
device.isBot. The field can be found between the fields
Thanks to the
device.isBot field, you can filter out the bot-generated sessions in the table. Such sessions clutter the statistics of direct sessions by real users and affect your traffic measurement as a whole.
The field gets the ‘true’ value if OWOX BI defines the session’s device category (the
deviceCategory field) as ‘robot’ or ‘mobile robot’.
The device categories ‘robot’ and ‘mobile robot’ are defined based on the
userAgent data as listed by the links below:
If the device category isn’t defined as ‘robot’ or ‘mobile robot’, the field will get the ‘false’ value.
