trackExternalLinks

Adobe offers the ability to track outbound links without manually setting the tl() method for each exit link. Enable this variable if you would like to use automatic link tracking for exit links.

When enabled, AppMeasurement compares any clicked link URL to values in linkInternalFilters and linkExternalFilters. If there is a match, an exit link tracking call automatically fires.

Track outbound links is a checkbox under the Link Tracking accordion when configuring the Adobe Analytics extension.

  1. Log in to launch.adobe.com using your AdobeID credentials.
  2. Click the desired property.
  3. Go to the Extensions tab, then click the Configure button under Adobe Analytics.
  4. Expand the Link Tracking accordion, which reveals the Track outbound links checkbox.

Click the checkbox to enable automatic exit link tracking.

The s.trackExternalLinks is a boolean that enables or disables automatic exit link tracking. If you do not want to track outbound links, or would prefer to manually call the tl() method to track exit links, set this variable to false.

s.trackExternalLinks = true;
