Dear Meghana,

To pass the information from one page to another, we use cookies.

Adobe uses a First Party cookie to set the previous page name and retrieve it back on the landing page.

If you are navigating from one domain to another, because cross domains cannot accept first-party cookies, the previous page name will not be set using the plugin.

However, the visitor ID is continued if your browser didn't block the third-party cookie and thus you can extract the report using Next Page and Previous Page reports in AA.

As @PratheepArunRaj mentioned, the getPreviousValue plugin won't work for you because you're crossing domains.

You can, however, use the Flow or Fallout visualisations to visualise how your users are moving between the specific pages. This assumes that you're tracking the pages from both domains to the same report suite and that you're using the ECID setup that Pratheep had mentioned.
