Technical skills needed to implement this solution: Familiarity with browser developer tools

What's the problem?

3rd party cookies are not present within the Resources tab of the browser developer tools.

Solution:

Instead of using the Resource tab within the browser developer tools, you'll have to look into the Network panel for a request sent as part of a goal conversion. 

  1. Open up the browser developer tools --> Network
  2. Fire off Optimizely request
  3. Click on the request --> Headers --> Request Headers --> Look for the strings bucket_map and end_user_id
  4. Alternatively, you can click on the Request --> Cookies and look for the strings bucket_map and end_user_id

Why is this information internal-only, and not customer facing?

This is not really information that needs to be digested by a large customer base. 3rd party cookies are more for cross-domain tracking (which works inconsistently), as well as reconciling user actions within our Backend.
