Advanced reporting functionality is provided through integration of a Magento instance with the Magento Business Intelligence (MBI). Magento collects data and sends this information to the MBI for analytics.
Magento Admin > Dashboard > “Go to Advanced Reporting” button opens reports in
https://advancedreporting.rjmetrics.com/report with corresponding authorization.
Learn more about:
- A Magento store website has a real domain name.
- The website works using HTTPS with a valid certificate.
- Successful subscription to the Advanced reporting.
The first synchronization of a Magento instance and the MBI can take up to a day to complete after the successful subscription.
To avoid system overload during its prime time, you can set the preferable time of a day for a data collection.
Magento Admin > Stores > Settings > Configuration > General > Advanced Reporting
Though the Analytics module provides API, it is used specifically to interchange data with the MBI. We do not recommend to extend the advanced reporting functionality in this version.
