Munchkin JavaScript version 159 & Associate Lead Deprecation

 

Beginning on 2020-05-07Marketo will start to roll out version 159 of the Munchkin JavaScript Client.  Subscriptions which have the Munchkin Beta flag enabled will see changes from this release first, after which deployment will begin on a rolling basis to subscriptions which do not have this flag enabled.  The most significant change in this release is the deprecation of Munchkin Associate Lead. 

 

 

Changes 

 

Deprecation of Associate Lead 

 

 

Beginning with this release, when the Associate Lead method is invoked, a warning will be issued to the browser console, indicating that the method will be removed in a future release.  For more details on what to expect from this deprecation process read this announcement. 

 

Reversion of Domain Selector V2 

 

 

Despite best efforts to offer an improved the selection of the domain for the munchkin cookie, the change proved disruptive in certain cases.  We will be reverting the mainlining of this change, and the functionality will be hidden behind a configuration flag as it was prior to version 158. 

 

Fixing Undefined Referrer when Calling Visits Web Page 

 

 

Previously when calling the Munchkin API to submit a Visits Web Page event, the referrer would be submitted with a value of ‘undefined’.  With version 159, the referrer will now be correctly recorded.  This bug did not affect normal web visit tracking. 

 

 

Rollout 

 

As with all Munchkin releases, this version will be a phased rollout, initiallity to customers who have enabled Munchkin Beta for their subscriptions, and later for all Marketo subscriptions.  This schedule is subject to change.  Customers who need early access to these features in their subscriptions should consider enabling Munchkin Beta.
