How to reproduce

The following example assumes a URL like http://www.foo.com/payment/EF123-233444df.
We want to strip away the EF123-233444df parameter, which is the payment ID.

  1. In the "Excluded Parameters" section of site settings, add an exclusion line.
    [^payment/]+$

(this reg expression does test out fine - see image:

  1. Navigate to the URL, and then observe the log result. It will still contain the filtered parameter.

screenshot_3

Note: The payment parameters says "3". That is only because my test is different than my example URL stated above. The actual testing URL looks like this: /payment/3

This function handles only get parameters.

"Excluded Paramters" only applies to URL parameters (as in GET paramters). If you want to modify the URL the best way is to use _paq.push(['setCustomUrl', 'theurl']); to set a custom URL JS-side or write a tracking plugin that applies the change during tracking.
