How do I create a group based on a URL/title match?

Sean Needham avatar


Groups help you to manage your content within the Siteimprove platform. Groups can be created in the Content suite (QA, SEO, Accessibility) and/or Analytics. For more information on types of groups see "What is a group?".

Note: Only Administrators, Account Owners or a custom role with the "manage groups" permission can create/edit groups.

Groups are most often created using a simple match based on page titles or URLs.

If your website URL/titles are not suitable for a simple group match, you can also use an HTML content match. For more information on that see "How do I create a group based on an HTML content match".

Creating a group based on a URL/title match

  1. With the site selected, go to Settings > Groups from the main menu.
  2. Click on "Create Group".
  3. Give the group a name.
  4. Select the service that the group should be available (default is Content and Analytics).
  5. Click on "Add group match" under Matches.
  6. Select the Match type.
  7. Select how the match should be treated, i.e. included or excluded. You need to include pages in a group before you can exclude pages from a group.
  8. Enter the match conditions, e.g. contains /news/.
