How to remove an event?


(Tim Bernhard) #1

I accidently tracked the wrong events which are now spaming my statistics. How can I remove certain events from the list of tracked events?

This is a great question, Tim. I, too, would like to know the answer. Have you discovered it?

Dear Roddy

Unfortunately not exactly; I have the feeling the consensus is either: these mistakes don’t happen in production, or: the events will disappear automatically when you stop tracking them, as soon as they are not in the analyzed daterange anymore (but yeah, by increasing the range they will be there again… :stuck_out_tongue: ).

I did try to find my way through the database, but did not invest enough time to find a way to manually delete the entries.

Best regards

Yes, my guess is that the answer can be found here

https://developer.matomo.org/guides/persistence-and-the-mysql-backend

coupled with a few simple MySQL statements.

Unfortunatelly, I still have a backlog of other unresolved problems that I need to resolve first.
