Is there a feature/road map to support Visitors count reporting for Views and Catalogues.
Can you guys explain a workaround if not available?

Do note these portals are hosted with in premises access. There will not be calls allowed elsewhere. (like google analytics)
Ideally a Java Script injection approach might be possible?

You may try to install/use Matomo :

Just to follow up on John's comment. Matomo (formerly Piwik) is a robust analytics package you can install either on the same machine as Viewer or one within the same network. Matomo isn't too hard to set up though like all analytics software, it does require a database. Once you have your analytics setup, you can get the tracking script.

From Version 6 onwards, a new Meta Class was introduced which allows you to add and manage custom analytics (e.g. Google Analytics, PIWIK, Matomo) to Essential Viewer via the repository.

In your repository, browse to...

EA Class > EA Support > Essential Viewer > Report Configuration > Report Constant

Locate the instance called "Analytics"

In the slot called "Report Constant Value" paste in the tracking script for your analytics package. Be sure to paste in the entire block as provided by the package including the <script>...</script> tags

Publish your repository and your analytics code will be included on each page of Essential Viewer.

You can verify the analytics code is present by performing a "View Source" in your browser.

Let us know how you get on.
