For a Piwik installation with a lot of websites, it is inconvenient that only super-admins can edit the settings for enable_all_users, enable_only_idsite and auto_archive in the segment editor
The normal admins can not use those features (they don't even know they exist), so there are double and triple segments with more or less the same content and often complaints about slow segments, because they are processed in real time.
I would be useful, if the admins could set these settings themselves.
I have a similar issue in my environment. "View" level users cannot create segments that are pre-processed as part of a regularly scheduled archive run. We do not want any reports created in real-time due to the unpredictable load & php memory constraints we enforce through the web server. So it would be very helpful to have the option for "View" level users to be able to set this. Alternatively, if an admin could change the global default setting so that all segments were pre-processed that would work too.
My current workaround is to edit a segment directly in the database so the following are set which seems to work:
It appears all 3 options need to be set and the ts_last_edit field needs to be updated in order for archive.php to pick up on it.
Thank you for the suggestion!
Can you try with latest Piwik beta 2.8.0-b3 ? we fixed #6373 which may help?
Thank you, I will set up a testserver asap and come back to you.
