HTTP referrer issues


#1

Hi all!
We’ve been getting some problematic HTTP referrers from our JS SDK and I am wondering if anyone encountered a similar situation or has ideas why this is happening:

  • We get events which have their referrer url equal to their page url.
  • We get events which are the first-ever of the user but with a referrer URL which is from our own site.

Seems familiar?
Have any insight?

I’d appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot,
Nir

Hi @nir.arazi

Did you set-up your referer_parser.json in enrichments? We’re on a managed service so not sure with a manual set-up but this should contain your domain. It would probably look something like this:

"schema": "iglu:com.snowplowanalytics.snowplow/referer_parser/jsonschema/1-0-0",

"data": {

    "name": "referer_parser",
    "vendor": "com.snowplowanalytics.snowplow",
    "enabled": true,
    "parameters": {
        "internalDomains": [
            "www.domain.com",
            "domain.com.au"
        ]
    }
}
