Custom Reports - Flagged Words
Posted by Jim Giseburt, Last modified by Jim Giseburt on 12 April 2017 09:33 AM

Custom Reports are created on the Notifications page and can be automatically dispatched on either a daily or weekly basis.

Problem:  We would like an automatic report run daily listing searches with flagged words.


  1. On the Notifications page, select Add Report at the bottom of the page.

    An Add Custom Report window should be displayed.

  2. Enter the name of the report:  Flagged Words.

  3. Enter the description of the report:  Report of Searches with Flagged Words.

  4. Enter the following text for the report:

        users.username AS "Username",
        log_raw.ip AS "IP",
        log_raw.timestamp::timestamp with time zone AT TIME ZONE 'CST6CDT' AS "Time",
        substr(urls.url, 0, 30) AS "URL",
        regexp_matches(urls.url, '\y(?:p|q|search(?:_query)?|text)=([^&]+)') AS "Query"
        log_raw, users, urls, hosts
        log_raw.timestamp > NOW() - INTERVAL '1 day'
        AND log_raw.userid = users.userid
        AND = urls.urlid
        AND log_raw.status = 6
        AND (
            urls.url ~* '\y(?:p|q|search(_query)?|text)=bomb\y'
            OR urls.url ~* '\y(?:p|q|search(_query)?|text)=nude(.|%20)selfie\y'
        log_raw.timestamp::timestamp with time zone AT TIME ZONE 'CST6CDT'

    Flagged words report window


    1. Change the highlighted timezone based upon your location:  EST5EDT, CST6CDT, MST7MDT, PST8PDT, etc.

    2. Change the highlighted flagged words as desired.  For a single flagged word, use the syntax as specified in the bomb example.  For multiple words, separate the words with  (.|%20) as in the nude selfie example.  The characters (.|%20) are necessary to specify that the words are either separated by a space (%20) or another character (.).  Depending upon the search engine, individual words are separated by either spaces or another character like a plus sign (+).

  5. Click the Add Report button in the edit window to save the report.

  6. To dispatch this report:

    1. Select the appropriate e-mail address in the E-mail Addresses section of the page, and 

      E-mail address section

    2. Select the Daily option for this report in the Report Notifications section of the page.

  2. Select the Weekly option for this report in the Report Notifications section of the page.
