When WURFL is integrated, Experience Analytics adds the WURFL data into a self-pruning cache of reference information that Experience Analytics can be configured to reference.
As data passes through the Windows™ pipeline, the Experience Analytics Reference session agent captures user agent strings and performs a lookup against the available public standards, including WURFL. When matches are found in WURFL, data is populated in the request and might later be evaluated by the Event Engine. This information is available for searching.
Without more information, Experience Analytics provides the event objects to store captured mobile device data for search and reporting purposes.
Using dimensions, you can configure remappings of captured data values as identified through WURFL to values consistent with your enterprise practices. For example, you can create mappings to identify versions of browsers so that you can track browser type at any level of granularity.

Traffic Type dimension to segment your reporting for sessions
that are initiated from mobile web browsers. In the Report Builder, you add the

Mobile native application traffic Type
For sessions initiated from mobile native applications, the Experience Analytics client frameworks submit user agent information, which is interpreted by the Experience Analytics Reference session agent.
If the user agent information identifies the session as a mobile native application session, the traffic type value is populated in the request:
This value is recorded for the
Traffic Type dimension.
