  • GA4 Filters not working as expected

    Posted by Akanksha on 2 April 2024 at 7:32 am

    So, I had to create subproperty for multiple geographies. Like Australia, India for the website. One subproperty I had to create which shows cumulative pages for APAC Region. So I used the filter for the subproperty “Page path matches regex (?:en_au|ja_jp|zh_cn|en_in|en_apc)\/ “. I can in pages that it is giving the views but only for 1 subdirectory

    Hi Akansha,

    Let me rephrase the requirement again for clarity.

    You want to use regular expression filter that includes cumulative page views for regions as specified by strings in


    And you want it page wise . e.g.

    • “/en_au/3213/page1”
    • “/ja_jp/3123/page2”
    • “/zh_cn/512/page3”
    • “/en_in/4141/page4”
    • “/en_apc/144/page5”

      And so on ..

    If my above understanding is correct for the requirement , please try the following Regex :


    .*: Matches any character (.) zero or more times (*). This part of the regex ensures that the rest of the page path is captured after the specified string.

      Yes. I want when I see all pages report, it should come with full URLs like:








      1,471(2.73%) – like this full url

      And also, the same thing we have applied in GA-U, it was successfully implemented. The only difference was that we used filter as “URI pattern matches” but in GA4 we don’t have URI option in filter

        Path component is just a subset of the URI, therefore, theoretically the regex you applied would serve the same purpose.

        To further investigate the issue, Please send a screenshot of both :
        1. The urls you’re getting in the GA4 interface

        2. The regex you have applied from subproperty.

        Also , the actual url of the website will be helpful in understanding the issue.

    Thanks for the reply!

    This is the way I want the URLs to come for APAC region, same way we have done it Universal GA, it worked with URI filter : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v0DIAsWCIJ4Nx6uo1DiFTz-XD9bqjMwg/view?usp=sharing

    This how I am getting in GA4. Only cumulative values for all the regions not pagewise. https://drive.google.com/file/d/151c_yfnz1SOfAIuG-pP2U5QPuQwreIyB/view?usp=sharing

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DTAlauUspNLUVtjyYtrQTbI99c0cOBIR/view?usp=sharing This is the filter that I have put and I am getting the above result. The regex suggestion you gave I tried that too, it didn’t work
