Configure the analytics cookie domain


How to configure the Sitecore Content Delivery analytics cookie domain.

Applies to

Content Delivery (CD)

Configuration file


You can configure the domain of the tracking cookie (SC_ANALYTICS_GLOBAL_COOKIE) if you do not want it to be the default domain.

Configuring the analytics cookie domain can be useful in several scenarios, for example:

  • You have configured a proxy or special load balancer that changes the domain of the requests.

  • You want to track analytic statistics for several CD servers separately.

  • You want all the sites in a multisite scenario to use the same domain in their analytics cookie.

To configure the cookie domain:

  1. Open the \App_Config\Sitecore\Marketing.Tracking\Sitecore.Analytics.Tracking.config file.

  2. Insert the Analytics.CookieDomain tag with the value set to the domain of your choice.

      <sitecore role:require="Standalone or ContentDelivery or ContentManagement">
          <setting name="Analytics.CookieDomain" value="YOUR DOMAIN" />
  3. Save your changes.
