Can anyone help us how to qualify for segments which are using rule based behavior created traits. We might have bigger combination within segment, so we don't want to navigate to all the pages and qualify.We have used demdex pixel URL's to run it in the browser in a new tab to qualify for segments, but at this point we are seeing it is not loading for us.
Yes, using the DCS API to send a call to AAM with the d_sid=<trait ID> will still realize the device making the call into said trait. If your segments are configured with a profile merge rule that contains device options, and contains the traits in the segment rule, it should only take a second or so to get both trait and segment qualified on the device.
Also, I would suggest to get it checked with the Audience Manager Support Team whether d_cts flag is enabled for your AAM Organization or not. Otherwise using d_cts=2 flag in DCS API will not return Traits & Segments to you.
