Issue embeding a Live view widget with segment argument

I have a Live:Real Time Visitor Count embeded on another server, I wanted to be able to have a live view of the sessions in a specific portion of the page - but the “&segment=pageUrl=@subsite” only works for the initial count.

When the page updates after a few seconds seconds it reverts back to showing the “all visits”.

I am using version 1.12 and I’m not sure if I am doing something wrong or this is a bug ?

I can replicate it on the live demo site using the following URL:



I cant find any open bug that this may relate to but there was one that was closed last year: Embed dashboard should forward the &segment parameter · Issue #3301 · matomo-org/matomo · GitHub
