Modify Tracking URL

We have a requirement to modify the tracking URL that is generated in the system. We are integrating in with Branch.io and iOS requires that we be able to mask out "web only" tracked URLs somehow. The only way we can do this is modifying the auto-generated tracking URL to show a different path in the tracked URL

e.g. currently the tracking URL generates something like:

https://[tracking_host]/r/?id=h458d142,3fdc02a,36d17c3&cid=...

What we would like to do is for certain URL parameters, change the URL to:

https://[tracking_host]/web/?id=h11b2848,a69a2ad,9ff689e&cid=...

I can see the script where the tracking URL is generated, but how do we modify the tracking scripts to process the new /web/ path?

We are also on an Adobe-hosted server model if that changes things

Any guidance would be appreciated!

Hi,

 

You can change your tracking URL in options:

1) Go to Administration > Platform > Options.

2) Search for 'NmsTracking_ClickFormula' and 'NmsTracking_OpenFormula'

3) Either create new trackingWebURL or Change the URL in these options according to your requirement. In your case, change highlighted 'r' with 'web'.

4) In the delivery use the tracking URL which you have changed.

Thanks.
