In /misc/generateVisits.php : 74
$idSite = Piwik_Common::getRequestVar('idSite', $idSite, 'int');
is used as a mechanism to allow users to specify the id of the site for which visits will be generated.
In /misc/generateVisits.php : 67
<a href='?choice=yes&token_auth=".Piwik::getCurrentUserTokenAuth()."'><b>YES</b>, I want to generate fake visits</a>
there is no mechanism no let the user choose a site and set the parameter idSite. Therefore, the idSite always defaults to 1. Cf. /misc/generateVisits.php : 16
$idSite = 1;
This mechanism do work when the user specifies herself the parameter in the URL of the browser.
I found this bug because on my installation I have deleted site number 1 and only have site number 2. The following error is sent back to the requester :
You can't access this resource as it requires a 'view' access for the website id = 1.
Add a drop down menu with the list of available sites and set the idSite parameter with it.
See #1374. I added a VisitorGenerator plugin that provides you with a website selector.
