Navigating around the Threat Report

Key

1. Filters

Filters give the ability to drill down and reveal additional levels of detail of your data. It is a great way to gain a deep understanding of what contributed to fraudulent traffic. You can filter on multiple values for all filtering options which are:

  • Property
  • Campaign
  • Partner
  • Sub-partner
  • Site ID
  • Country
  • Transaction status reason

Applied filters remain persistent across all dashboards and help you navigate easily through your activity.

2. Types of Transaction Status Tab

Selecting one of these tabs will show data related to each tab:

  • Invalid tab: Displays fraudulent or invalid activity
  • Filtered tab: Displays activity that is outside your target audience

3. Time Zones and Date Time Ranges

By default, the timezone is set to UTC and the range is set to the last 7 days. You can choose your preferred time zone and date-time range.

4. Data Field for Plotting

The All Traffic report shows you different dimensions for impressions, clicks, events, installs and conversions. You can compare them by choosing two data fields in the drop-down which includes:

  • Invalid transaction
  • Filtered transaction
  • Percentage of invalid transactions
  • Percentage of filtered transactions

The selection of two data fields will automatically plot a corresponding chart for you.

5. Plotting Area

When the filters, timezone and other required fields are selected, the plotting area is updated to reflect the chosen data. If no data is present, then the plotting area will show a flat chart.

6. Data Table

Data Table shows the numerical values of impressions, clicks, installs, events and conversions. You can scroll to the right to see every available column. By default, each transaction category shows:

  • Invalid transaction
  • Percentage of invalid transactions

In addition to the default columns, you can choose to include or exclude any column by clicking on the three vertical dot icon located on the top right-hand side of the data table (9).

7. Plot Rows

You may want to see more granular data (e.g. by invalid reasons) on a chart. This can be achieved by selecting one or multiple reasons (up to five reasons) then and then clicking on 'Plot Rows' button. The plotting area will be updated accordingly.

8. Invalid Reason Explanation

Hovering over a question mark icon will give you a detailed explanation of each invalid reason. You can also check out our list of Invalid Reasons here for more detail. If you don't find the invalid reasons you're looking for, contact our team.
