getMarketingCloudVisitorID

getMarketingCloudVisitorID returns the Experience Cloud visitor ID.
Syntax:
var *
variable name
* = visitor.getMarketingCloudVisitorID()
This method typically used with custom solutions that require reading the visitor ID. It is not used by a standard implementation.
getMarketingCloudVisitorID
also works with callback functions to read Analytics IDs and bring them in to your system or application.
//callback function var useMarketingCloudID = function(id){ //whatever your function does with the Experience Cloud ID }; //get the Experience Cloud ID and pass it to the function var mcID = visitor.getMarketingCloudVisitorID(useMarketingCloudID)
If you're an Analytics customer, also check for and send the Analytics ID to your function. For example, you would want both identifiers when passing the visitor ID in a hidden form element to a server-side application that uses the data insertion API. In this case, you should collect and return the Experience Cloud and Analytics visitor IDs. See Get Analytics Visitor ID .
