Hello--

Just wondering if anyone here has ideas on how to trace a web app call to determine source. I have a web app that takes in name, email address and service ID to add that new recipient to a service (an email newsletter subscription, in this case). We have removed the one web page that we know that's been using this web app (essentially a web form that's using an HTTP POST command), but for some reason, I keep seeing new signups every day. Our marketing team is not aware of any active acquisition channel for this newsletter at this time, so this is very bizarre.

Is there any way to figure out where these new signups are coming from?

Thanks in advance for any insights. I have a ticket open with Customer Care, but just wondering if anyone here had come across this situation before.

The log file approach seems promising. Worth asking Adobe Support, even if to enable logging for only a couple of hours (I can probably check to see if there's a pattern with previous signups to get the "most popular" time of the day that they're coming in).

Great idea with the JS code! Maybe something like document.referrer could work. Let me try this on a test web app and see what turns up. Thanks so much!
