Using Cloud-Based Instances with Target

Information about issues customers face when using cloud-based instances to test Adobe Target.

Target customers sometimes use cloud-based instances with Target for testing or simple proof-of-concept purposes. These instances might include the following domains:

azurewebsites.net

cloudapp.net

amazonaws.com

cloudfront.net

herokuapp.com

firebaseapp.com

These domains, and many others, are part of the Public Suffix List.

Issue: Modern browsers won't save cookies if you are using these domains.

The at.js and mbox.js JavaScript libraries use cookies to track users to ensure that Target always presents a consistent experience. If the Target JavaScript libraries can't save cookies, Target requests are disabled.

Solution: As best practice, if you intend to use cloud-based instances with domains included on the Public Suffix List, make sure that you customize the cookieDomain setting. For more information, see targetGlobalSettings().
