Sometimes an organization would like to remove an implementation due to contract expiration or to reduce the number of server calls. Rather than editing each page and removing any Adobe Analytics code, you can replace the entire contents of the s_code.js file with this single line:
var s=new object();
This method is recommended as opposed to other inefficient methods, such as the following:
- Changing the report suite ID to an invalid report suite: It is not recommended to change the report suite ID to another value, as it causes unnecessary load on Adobe's servers.
- Changing s.trackingServer to point away from Adobe: As long as the s.t() function exists, an image request goes somewhere. Changing s.trackingServer to another location other than Adobe's servers is not recommended, as it causes unnecessary load to whatever location you define the variable to. Also, all image requests return with a status of 404, since no other location is equipped to handle and return image requests in Adobe's format.
