The following Oracle Infinity Tag enhancements have been added:

Cross-Domain Tracking: The Oracle Infinity Tag is enhanced with new cross-domain tracking functionality.  If enabled, the Cross-Domain Tracking Plugin will embed a visitor ID hash either as a query string hash of a parameter and value pair, or as a new query parameter that persists visitor IDs across domains as a user navigates from one site to another site.  As a user transitions to a new site, the visitor ID mirrors the session information from the old domain to the new one, and allows Oracle Infinity to continue tracking the user session.

If enabled on the Oracle Infinity Tag, no additional configuration is necessary in Infinity reports to track visitors across domains, the process is seamless from a reporting standpoint.

The following configuration options exist for the plugin:

    • Ability to specify a ‘guard character’ to separate the visitor hash from other hash values that may be present on the source or destination sites.
    • Ability to ‘white list’ the domains that visitors traverse across.
    • Ability to ‘black list’, or not track, the domains that visitors traverse across.
    • Ability to force the plugin to use query parameters instead of hash tag parameters to pass a visitor ID across domains (this option is useful if using a hash tag value is incompatible with other technologies used on your website).

Note: This new method of cross-domain tracking replaces older third party cookie technology, which was deprecated in the Oracle Infinity Tag.

The following Oracle Infinity Analytics defects have been resolved:

  • When configuring Collections in Analytics, the list of groups are not sorted alphabetically.  (INF-26366)
  • In some cases, when a cell is selected in the report table, the chart does not show trended data over time.  (INF-25424)
  • The "Last Modified" date as seen in the library shows a date and time in the future depending on a user's time zone offset.  (INF-13672)
