Hi There,


Want to inquire something about the Adobe analytics dimension ‘Cookie Support

Dimension items

Dimension items include Enabled , Disabled , and Unknown .

  • Enabled : The browser supports cookies, and has them enabled.
  • Disabled : The browser does not support cookies, or the visitor disabled them.
  • Unknown : AppMeasurement could not determine cookie support. The k query string was not present in the image request.

Sorry that I couldn't fully understanding the meaning above,

I would like to know in which case the value is collected as ‘Enabled, Disabled or Unknown’(Any Examples) ?

 

Also, as in website, there would be different types of cookies like -- Performance(Functional), Analytics, and Advertising cookies

Is this dimension specifically referring to any type of them?

Hi @panj75843567 ,

 

The 'Cookie support' dimension reports if the browser supports cookies for a hit. It is useful to determine the ratio of visitors who use browsers that support cookies, and those who have disabled the cookies.

This dimension collects data from the 'k' parameter in image requests. AppMeasurement tries to set a cookie named s_cc , then detects if the cookie exists.

So, if your browser is configured to accept the cookies then this parameter will set to 'Y' as shown below.

However, if you configure your browser not to accept the cookies then the 'k' parameter will set to N.

But, if the s_cc cookie is not set in your browser or 'k' parameter is not set in the server call then this dimension will be set to 'Unknown' line item.

Hope this helps.
