Multiple Global Mboxes

Hi, hope someone can help me with this.

Our Target account is set across multiple domains, and activities on some of these domains are entirely separate from activity on others.

We want to pass parameters in to the global mbox only for the domains where those parameters can be put to use. Is it therefore possible to define different global mboxes for each of these domains? I haven't been able to find any info explicitly stating this.

That is, when adding mbox.js tag on to each domain, could I edit the settings for "Global mbox name" to 'domainA-global-mbox' for domain A, and then separately use 'domainB-global-mbox' for domain B, all within the same Target account?

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks,

Chris

Oh interesting, it's not actually specific to at.js. Looks like we have it documented in 2 places. You can use it with an mbox.js implementation. Here is the more generic documentation for targetPageParams(): https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/target/ov/c_pass_parameters_to_global_mbox.html

Thanks, Kimen.

I see that targetPageParams() sits under at.js documentation. Can it also be used with the mbox.js script?

If not, is the alternative mboxUpdate(), using the global mbox name?

Thanks,

Hi Chris,

Only 1 global mbox is supported across your account. You can limit where your activities run by adding URL rules to your activities: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/target/target/t_temtest.html 

You could also pass a parameter on the page using targetPageParams() (https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/target/ov2/r_target-atjs-targetpageparams.html) and then select those parameters in that "configure URL" section in the Visual Experience Composer, or by adding the parameters as "refinements" in the form based composer.

Hope that helps!
