The Reference session agent manages the detection and population of user agent information extracted from the request buffer. When a user submits a request to the web application, information about the visitor's browser, operating system, and type of application (mobile, desktop, BOT) is included in the request.
By default, user agent parsing is enabled for new installs and upgrades. Legacy Mode must be enabled separately.
Legacy Mode enables the capabilities of the initial implementation of extended user agent parsing.
Legacy Mode features include:
- Use of a self-pruning cache for quick access to the most frequently detected user agents. This cache is also used in the new implementation.
- Configuration files in use:
BrowsCap.csv- Public standard for fixed and bot user agents.
UserCap.csv- User-defined configuration file of user agents not available in
WURFL.csv- If the CX Mobile module is licensed, the WURFL standard must be downloaded and converted to CSV format, which contains the public WURFL standard for use by Experience Analytics in identifying mobile user agents.
- Log messages sent to the Windows™ Event Log.
