Previous page tracking

Hi, 

I am working on the tracking of the previous page. 

I am not getting the tracking of it. How can I check in the web developpers if the Adobe cookies related to this tracking are in place ?

 

Thanks

Sophie

Just to clarify, are you using:

 

1. getPreviousValue plugin to store the pageName value in a cookie like gpv_Page? (https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/implementation/vars/plugins/getpreviousvalue.html?...)

 

2. Are you trying to see Activity Map's information for "previous page" (context variable a.activitymap.page)

 

 

For 1, you should can check all the cookies in Chrome using the "Application" tab in the Web Developer toolbar. On the left side, you will see different storage types: Local Storage, Session Storage, Cookies, etc. 

 

Click on Cookies, then here you will see a list of domains (you will likely have values for your ad servers), choose your domain... the getPreviousPage should be setting values using first party behaviour. 

 

You will see a list of all your cookies, but you can filter these down by typing in expected  name or value information.
