Please see the report below. It seems that Adobe Analytics data is captured only when Cookie Support is enabled ? Is this standard or can be changed ?

If yes - where can i change this ?

Hi Chetan,

Adobe analytics hit is captured irrespective of the cookie support.

The "k" query parameter in server call indicates cookie support. Reference: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/sc/implement/query_parameters.html

Its standard. System checks to see if the session cookie (s_cc) is set before the request is sent. It has 3 values Y'=yes(Enabled) ,'N'=no(Disabled) , 'U'=unknown

Okay. Thanks for sharing this.

However, my question is still not answered.

If Adobe has captured the page views even when cookie are disabled, shouldnt my report give at least 5% (which is reasonable) count where cookie support is disabled ?

This may be related to report suite setting - Inferred Optout Nonmobile. When this is enabled, workspace reporting will not show the server call data with k=N.

This setting can be found in Report Suite -> General Settings -> Privacy Settings.

The answer is Yes, the data is captured even if the cookies are disabled.
