Tools

On the Tools screen, you can enable or disable various tools for the installed solution. For example, you can turn on Target’s console debugging statements or use the DTM Staging Library. These tools are only available if Target and DTM are installed on your page.

You can dynamically insert Adobe Experience Platform Launch or DTM on any page to test something on a page that does not have Platform Launch or DTM installed. Click the Embed Code icon, then type your embed code and click Save.

Tool Description

Target Console Logging

This tool exposes Target-specific debugging statements to the browser console, all beginning with the AT: prefix, by adding a cookie called mboxDebug=true to your browser. At this time, the console statements do not appear within the Debugger Logs screen, but are visible in the browser's native debugging console.

This tool requires at.js 0.9.6+. If you are using an older version of at.js, you can add the ?mboxDebug=true query string parameter to your URL in order to turn on console logging. If you are using mbox.js, you can add the ?_AT_Debug=console parameter to turn on console logging limited to Visual Experience Composer activities.

Enable Mbox Traces

This tool adds detailed information to Target responses, which can be explored in the Target>Mbox Trace screen of the debugger.

You must have be logged into the Experience Cloud in one of your Chrome tabs to enable this tool.

Disable Target

This tool disables all Target requests by adding a cookie called mboxDisable=true to your browser.

This tool requires at.js 0.9.6+. If you are using an older version, you can add the ?mboxDisable=true query string parameter to your URL to disable mboxes.

Mbox Highlight

This tool draws a red box around legacy, wrapping-style mboxes.
