Navigate vendor trace report

   Permission: Diagnose Dashboard

In this article, we will cover the available tools that you can utilize to navigate a vendor trace report. 


View vendors by consent action

Depending on how your property has been configured, you may see multiple tabs for your vendor trace report. Each tab is a consent action that corresponds with a specific vendor chain that is triggered for that particular consent status.

Filter by metrics

Vendor trace comes with four metric filters that you can use to visually isolate the vendors in the vendor chain who satisfy the metric description. Use the Select a filter dropdown menu to select a metric filter to apply to your vendor trace report.

Non-disclosed vendors Possible fingerprinting Prior to consent Storage and information

When the non-disclosed vendors filter is applied to your vendor trace report, the visualization will highlight the following vendors and relationships within the vendor chain:

  • Disclosed vendors
  • Disclosed vendors who trigger non-disclosed vendors
  • Non-disclosed vendors

Use the provided toolbox to toggle the various traces on/off within the visualization.

Filter by prevalence range

The prevalence of a vendor refers to the percentage of scans where Sourcepoint has detected the vendor across all scans configured for the scan URL. For example, a vendor with a prevalence of 25% means that Sourcepoint only detected the vendor in 25% of all scans for the scan URL. 

Use the provided prevalence range filter to select the start of the range. Vendors with prevalences that are greater than or equal to the start of the prevalence range will be included in your visualization. For example, if you set the prevalence range filter to 50% then the visualization will only show vendors in the vendor chain whose prevalences are between 50%-100%.

Expand/collapse single vendor

Vendors who trigger downstream vendors in the vendor chain can have all trace lines that originate from it collapsed by clicking the minus symbol to the right of the vendor name within the vendor trace visualization

  Note: If expanding the trace line for a single vendor in the vendor chain, the vendor trace visualization will only expand the vendors in the layer immediately after the originating vendor.

Navigate across layers

If a vendor chain exceeds the viewable area in the vendor trace visualization (either due to a long a vendor chain or zooming in) you can navigate across the layers via the provided arrows in the upper-right hand corner of the visualization

Vendor search

Use the vendor search function to highlight a specific vendor in the vendor chain. When a vendor is searched for, you will have access to an additional tool in the view toolbox that allows you to toggle on/off an overlay that only shows the trace line for the searched vendor.
