Configure the analytics cookie domain

Abstract

How to configure the Sitecore Content Delivery analytics cookie domain.

Applies to

Content Delivery (CD)

Configuration file

\App_Config\Sitecore\Marketing.Tracking\Sitecore.Analytics.Tracking.config

The Analytics.CookieDomain setting determines the domain of the tracking cookie (SC_ANALYTICS_GLOBAL_COOKIE). The default value is empty, which makes the current domain the default cookie 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:

  • Insert the domain name in the value attribute of the Analytics.CookieDomain tag.
