First Party Cookie CNAME in test environments

joeyh8365667 23-03-2020

Hi, 

I have begun the process for the recommended first party cookie implementation using CNAME entries. Those are in place and Adobe has purchased the certificates. However, I'm wondering how this implementation will work correctly in test environments. For example, I test my implementation on  www.mywebsites.test  however the CNAME is setup with the domain  smetrics.mywebsites.com  so the first party cookies would not work because the domains are different, correct? 

Is there a recommended way to implement this for non-production environments?

Dear Joey,

For Production and Non-Production environments, the implementation is the same.

Check out my blog: https://terrynwinter.com/adobe-analytics-google-announcement-and-cross-domain-tracking/

It has the answer to track Cross Domains: Using appendVisitorIDsTo.

But by default cross domains work with Third-Party Cookie and through ID sync. Above is needed only if the browsers block third-party cookies.

Thank You, Arun.
