Id' like to share with you a short article showing you how to "map" some custom text (i.e. Custom Username, ID, custom names etc.) to a Client IP Address or, more likely, to a list of Client IP Addresses.
It's really simple to achieve that, but this works only for versions > 12.4.10:
First thing you need to do is to create a file called "useripmap.properties" in the CAS_INSTALL_DIR/CAS/config inserting your mappings using the following rule:
An example of useripmap.properties would be:
10.10.10.1=ThisIDIsMuchBetter 10.10.10.2=ImthecoolestID 10.10.10.3=NoonecanbeatmyID 10.10.10.4=Easypeasy
And yes, you're done, you don't even need a CAS restart..Just wait a couple of monitoring intervals and your information should come up in the "User name" dimension ready to be used in your awesome reports.
Hope that helps.
PS: before creating the file and applying these rules, please check that the actual user name is matching and you don't have any aggregation in place like "Client from ..."
