Lesson: Setting up Real User Monitoring

We’re changing our user interface. Some info may not yet be up to date. Please check From classic to new UI.

This lesson takes you through the steps of setting up your first RUM website which also begins your 30-day RUM trial. We have a detailed version of the instructions in our Knowledge Base if you find yourself needing more information. Before you begin, make sure you have a few things:

  1. Basic understanding of HTML
  2. Access to your website’s HTML
  3. A list of the pages you plan on monitoring (One script per domain and its subdomains).
  4. Ability to cut and paste (We think you’ve got this one!)

Now you’re ready to create your first RUM website.
