Optional: Add your first-party tracking domain to Vidyard players
Important: this step is significant for users who have established first-party cookie tracking with Oracle Eloqua
By default, visitors to Eloqua-tracked webpages are assigned a third-party
eloqua.com cookie that tracks their interaction with your content. The
eloqua.com cookie is known as a third-party cookie because it was created on a domain that is different from the page where the cookie was requested.
Oracle Eloqua provides with you the option to enable first-party cookie tracking. This means that visitors to your page are assigned an Eloqua cookie created from your domain, rather than from
Web browsers tend to block first-party cookies less frequently and generally allow you to track visitors to your webpage more successfully than cookies generated from third-party domains.
What does this mean for your integration with Vidyard? With the Vidyard for Oracle Eloqua integration, the Eloqua tracking script is automatically added to the embed code on Vidyard players.
If you've set up first-party cookie tracking with Oracle Eloqua, it is important that the domain name associated with your tracking cookies is also used by the Vidyard player embed code.
- From the Vidyard dashboard, select Group > Integrations > Oracle Eloqua
- Enter the domain name of your webpage
vidyard.com(this would also influence any subdomains, such as knowledge.vidyard.com)
- Click Update Cookie Domain
Optional: Whitelist Vidyard traffic to Oracle Eloqua
Your company may restrict access to Oracle Eloqua through use of an IP address whitelist. Any user who attempts to sign in from a computer with an IP address not included in the whitelist will be prevented access.
IP whitelists also extend to traffic from third-party applications that interact with Oracle Eloqua. If necessary, add the following IP addresses to your Oracle Eloqua IP whitelist so that the Vidyard integration may successfully perform API requests:
