Retrieve your UUID


Describes different ways to retrieve your personal UUID for testing purposes.

You might want to retrieve your own Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) to use as an input for the Event Monitor or the AI Monitor in the Developer Resources tab of the Customer Engagement Console (CEC).

There are three ways to retrieve your own UUID:

  • By using the Get my UUID button in the CEC.

  • By using the rfk.uid() function.

  • By examining your browser cookies.

To retrieve your UUID using the Get my UUID button:

  1. In the CEC, navigate to Developer Resources.

  2. Click Event Monitor.

  3. Click Get my UUID. This will open your website in a new browser window.

  4. Navigate back to the CEC. The UUID field will be auto-populated with your UUID.

To retrieve your UUID using the rfk.uid() function:

  1. In your browser, open the developer console.

  2. Type rfk.uid() in the console and press Enter.

  3. Copy the UUID returned by the rfk.uid() function.

To retrieve your UUID by examining your browser cookies:

  1. In your browser, open the developer console and go to the Application tab.

  2. In the cookies section of your browser, select your site.

  3. Find and copy the cookie entry for __ruid.
