Web applications built using Single Page Application (SPA) principles minimize network traffic by transferring to the browser itself much of the computing work for creating what the user sees. The initial page request downloads everything that is necessary for constructing all aspects of the application, with the possible exception of some data, including HTML partials and fragments, that may be fetched dynamically from the backend in response to user interaction.
The individual views that the user sees are known as virtual pages. Browser RUM supports virtual pages created using the AngularJS framework, sometimes known simply as Angular.
In AngularJS, a virtual page is an individual view, comprised of the rendered template of the current route in the context of the main layout file. You can configure how AngularJS virtual pages are referred to and sorted in UI lists and dashboards. For more information on using Browser RUM with virtual pages, see AngularJS Support.
Access Virtual Page Naming Rules
Open the browser application in which you are interested.
On the left navigation bar, click Configuration.
Click Instrumentation >.
- Select the Virtual Pages tab.
Virtual Page Naming Rules
The logic for naming virtual pages is identical to that for naming regular pages, with one exception. Because AngularJS pages can use anchors (the part of the URL after the #) to distinguish among virtual pages, in these cases, using the What part of anchor should be used in page name section allows you to specify which virtual page is being accessed correctly.
