I suppose you can configure the eVar for "Original Value (First)" attribution, and have it expire on Visit.

Then in your processing rules, you can map PageURL to that eVar.

In theory, the first PageURL value encountered in a visit will be stored and persisted in that eVar until the visit expires

Thanks for your reply.

I have followed the exact same steps.

But, what should be next steps?
How to make that eVar as part of the page view beacon?

Hi @VinayC that is a nice part about using the Processing Rule I described. You don't have to add the eVar into your front end code. Page URL is automatically sent on every beacon, so you can copy that value into an eVar in a new Processing Rule. Here is an example where an eVar (eVar54) called "Page URL" is populated with the value of "Page URL" under Hit Attributes

Thanks for your reply @jgrubbs 

I was stuck and was wondering if the eVar should be appearing in the beacon.
But I have checked in the workspace, the data is available since the day I had created the processing rule.

Thanks for all the help!!

If you want to see a dimension called Entry Page URL (and also Exit Page URL), then you need to setup a prop called "Page URL" and enable Pathing on it. AA will then automatically create the Entry Page URL (and Exit Page URL) dimensions.

Follow @jgrubbs's instructions to populate the prop's value.
