This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

How does the integration work?

  1. User opens statistik module for a specific page → TYPO3 checks access → Module inserts access records to Matomo tables automatically (admin as superuser, normal user with view rights)
  2. load Matomo in iframe / object tag
  3. Authenticate user against TYPO3 be_users table with the user of the be cookie. For that step the plugin TYPO3Login is needed in Matomo.
  4. That's all.
