View data source and turn on data processing

Citrix Analytics automatically discovers the Content Collaboration data source associated with your Citrix Cloud account.

A site card for Content Collaboration appears on the Data Sources page. Click Turn On Data Processing to allow Analytics to begin processing data.

Content collaboration data source usage

View received events

The site card displays the number of events received from the data source for the last one hour, which is the default time selection. You can also select 1 week (1 W) and view the data.

After you have enabled data processing, the site card might display the No data received status. This status appears for two reasons:

  1. If you have turned on data processing for the first time, the events take some time to reach the event hub in Citrix Analytics. When Citrix Analytics receives the events, the status changes to Data processing on. If the status does not change after some time, refresh the Data Sources page.

  2. Analytics has not received any events from the data source in the last one hour.
