Adding a New Site and Domain on the Control Panel for SiteSpect Edge clients

This is a general guidance on how to add a new site and a new domain on a section control panel.

Configuring New Site

Location: Click "New" at the top right of the site list page when you log in to the admin. 

Tab "General"

  • Customer Name: Fill in company name
  • Type: Select the type of the site based on your understanding or client advice
  • Default URL for Preview: put in the default landing page url, usually "/".
  • Domain: i.e. www.sitespect.com

Tab "Implementation"

  • Implementation Diagram Upload: If the traffic flow diagram is complicated, upload the diagram from here. If traffic flow is simple, put it in the implementation notes such as "End user=> SiteSpect => Web Origin".
  • Content Delivery Network: If the client uses any CDN, please select the CDN vendor.
  • Implementation Notes: Anything you think necessary can be noted here.    

Tab "User Tracking":

Most of the default setting can remain the same, the below ones need modification.

  • Default Cookie Domain: typically this would be the second level domain. for example: .example.com
  • Cookie Names: for each different domain that you don’t want to track together, add appendix to the cookie name, for example for test.example.com, use cookie domain .example.com but adds “T” to its cookie name, such as SSID_T, where T stands for “test”.
  • Automatic Robot Detection:  Select "Append to  bottom of page" AND select "ajax()" option.

Tab "Communication and Pass Through"

  • Ensure front-end sites set up in site identities are in the whitelist to enable VE. Example: https://www.adorama.com

Tab "Features"

  • Leave as default.

Tab “Security”

Enable 2fa or GDPR per client’ requests, otherwise keep as default.
