Exclude traffic

I know of the feature in settings to completely ignore certain traffic. But what if I need that traffic for testing purposes (to see sonething is working), but do not need it afterwards? A custom filter to apply, for instance, to comb out one or several IP address(es) when you watch your data, a filter you can then remove when you need to see everything.

I was to ask this as a feature. :slight_smile:

OK, I put it over there now. Thanks! :slight_smile:

well, you can already remove IP filtering from settings or Delete ignore cookie… ?

matt I guess he means things like, exclude a certain ip or even a country (or anything else) from visible stats no mater if it exists in database. this way you can do many things with the stats.

it is the feature requst: Segmentation in Piwik, phase 2: UI · Issue #2092 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub

nice. it points to this one I think Segmentation: implement UI for adding/editing segments, and switching segments · Issue #2135 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
is there any forum related topic to reply there with ideas on this or just use the above page ?
truth is u speak very technical there :slight_smile:
