Exclude API URLs from Entry Pages in Journey Reports and Metrics

When I run a journey report for a funnel in the entry page section I see APIs are the considered entry page often.  This is inaccurate, and based on the UBX connection should allow some flexibility to the type of connection or data being sent over. I don't know if this is because we are a CXA customer who uses Tealeaf with the Akamai Connector or if it's by design.  I'm thinking that only SDK screenviews that are seen from the Tealeaf SDK should come into play here and an exclusion of Akamai page URLs is needed.  An api call should never be considered an entry point url.

How will this idea be used?

The business wants to use CXA and pull a journey report on a funnel from Sprint, VMU, or Boost web or native apps.  The events that are being sent over are page level events for a funnel.  The journey report works fine and pulls the right mappings and mindsets, and the business looked at the first journey report with me and was wondering why an API would show under the entry page section.  We would expect to see the entry page into the flow when a journey report is setup where the first touch point is emtpy and the last touch point is the confirmation page, with a report that is set to pull top paths.

    Thank you for your feedback! It sounds like this affects the data that flows to CXA journey and mindsets through UBX, mainly from Tealeaf. If so, we will want to work across capabilities. I will start that conversation.
