Page Load Rule and s.clearvars Question

scottt23929401

I have a rule that sets variables for adobe analytics on my global page load rule on page top. then I set the s.t() beacon on windows loaded because I have Dun and Bradstreet firing data API collection in between. What would happen if I remove the s.clearvars after the s.t() beacon fires on windows loaded? 

 

The reason I ask is because another extension (Qualitrics) needs access to the global variables here: s_c_il[1].eVar1 but since I clearvars they are undefined after windows loaded.

 

Questions:

  1. Do I even need clearvars after I send a beacon for page load collection? wont the values get overwritten on the next page with the new values anyway? I dont have SPA pages so that is not a concern.
  2. Can I set clearvars at the beginning of the next page instead of clearing vars after the beacon?

 

I just want to better understand the potential impacts before making changes.

No need.

Clearvars are generally used when the data element is none, and you need to actively clear it to avoid using the previous value, so generally do not choose the type of none when setting the data element.

Qualitrics uses global variables, which can be placed in the same rule, and Actions can be side by side.

No need to set clearvars on Page Loads (Before or After)
