    In my previous blog post, we were discussing on how to retrieve the existing Sitecore Analytics Interaction Details using the Mongo API or the Sitecore Analytics API.

  • Use MongoDB to store Sitecore log entries centrally!

    Posted 02/24/2015 by Akshay Sura

    The idea is to store a copy of the Sitecore logs in a central location such as a common MongoDB. Why? hmm why not?
