    Applies to:

  • Version Affected:  9.1 and Higher


    This article explains how changing the weightings on Device Recognition(Digital Fingerprints) Profile Components affects their score and how the total score is calculated.



    When changing then the Profile Components it it not clear how changing the radio buttons as shown below actually affects the overall score




    High has a value of 100

    Low has a value of 25

    Off is 0

    All the values are summed, then each individual component's score is calculated as a percentage of the total. For example If total is 550, then divide each component by 5.5, if total is 475, then divide each by 4.75.


    The attached Excel spreadsheet is preset with the default values and shows how altering each component affects the overall score.
