Pages by Static Properties

Sites with Static Content Generation installed can access the Pages by Static Properties report from the Reports menu. CommonSpot reports an error if your site is not licensed for this feature.

This report groups pages by their current static content generation setting (see What Makes Content Dynamic) and categorizes pages that cannot be made static with the primary reason they must be dynamic. You should initially run this from the root subsite, for a complete view of your site.

Use this report to identify those pages CommonSpot considers dynamic. Pages that are auto-detect dynamic are good candidates for further investigation. Why are they dynamic? Is anything that is inappropriately configured for dynamic page rendering? Pages listed under the different Required Dynamic settings have a more clearly identified cause for the Required Dynamic state.  Review these to make sure that pages are appropriately activated, have the proper security, and are not inappropriately expired.

To view items for which you are the owner, optionally set filtering and ordering criteria, including which subsite levels to include, date restrictions and static propertie.The defaults for these options are set through Site Administration - Properties and Settings - Report Settings. See Report Settings in the Administrator's Reference.

You can filter using these options. Click Filter to apply and display items that meet your criteria.
