What is a limited system?

Every new system is created as trial by default with the ability to expand working with WalkMe on further apps. Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager or WalkMe contact for more information.

Click Manage columns to add more columns if you do not see them on the page.

The search bar in the Admin Center allows you to find systems by:

  1. System name
  2. URL: Enter a URL to find systems that are configured to load on it

Search example:

To locate the system with the configurations below, you can search for “” or “


When searching by URL, results will only be shown if a system is configured to load on the exact URL that was searched for and the toggle “Load WalkMe from extension” is turned on.

  • Turning on the toggle allows you to configure what URLs the system should load on
  • Turning off the toggle will disable the current configuration on the extension level

Note: This setting has no impact on snippet implementation.The snippet code will work whether the toggle is turned on or off. Read more about snippet implementation.


  • List of URL patterns dedicated to match your application
  • The following syntax is supported:
    • Start with: https:// or http://
      • Note: If both are required, create two separate patterns
    • Followed by:
    • End with:
      •  /path to specify the exact path to the pages where WalkMe should load
      • /some*path to specify the static and reliable part of the path, but also account for dynamic part of the path with a wildcard asterisk (*) which can be added anywhere in the path name

Extension configuration

  • Load WalkMe on this environment toggle: Should be turned on for WalkMe content to be active and available on this environment
  • If you have an active WalkMe Extension and snippet: Allows you to control the loading order and logic for each setting
    • Load the snippet first: If your website contains a snippet embedded in the HTML and this system is also configured on the extension, turning on this toggle will prioritize WalkMe content to load using the snippet over the extension
    • If the snippet doesn't load, load the extension: Available only if Load the snippet first is turned on, turning on this toggle acts as a fallback setting, allowing the extension to load the system on the page only when the snippet doesn't load WalkMe within 1 second
    • Load WalkMe on cross domain iFrames: Allows the extension to load on cross domain iFrames if such exist in the application and extension configuration matches the iFrame URLs
  • Top domain validation: Allows you to configure the extension to load in certain scenarios 
    • On all domains: Recommended and selected by default, this will allow you to load the extension on any top domain as configured in the initial URL settings
    • On specific domains: Displays the URL match pattern input field dedicated to match the top domain URLs

Top domain is the main URL you see in the address bar of the browser tab

Snippet configuration

  1. Choose Snippet
  2. Copy the snippet code and embed it in your website's HTML
    • Make sure to copy the correct snippet for each environment (Test, Production, etc.)


There is currently a limitation where some of the WalkMe Admin Center data is restricted for users with a snippet implementation. Specifically "Total Users" data.
