FAQ: Protecting Clients' Statistics

Can Sawmill be configured to limit access to statistics, so that a customer can only see the statistics associated with their section of my web site?

Short Answer

Yes, you can password protect statistics in several ways.

Long Answer

Yes. Sawmill provides several ways to do this. In general, you will create a separate user for each client, and a separate profile for each client. Then you will configure their user to be non-administrative, and to have permission to access only their own profile. Finally, you will set up their profile to show only their data, either by pointing it only at their files, or (if their data is interleaved with other clients' data), by using log filters to discard all events from the log which don't belong to them.
