I am implementing Google Analytics Test and I need to check if it works before we deploy it to live. But our staging server is behind a .htaccess security. So the Google check from Analytics does not work.
Is there another way to check it? What is the parameter that is send when a test case is send with pageview call?
You can test it with checking your pageview request. When you see such data in your request to Google Analytics, then you know it works.
xid: b6dd_g1VSjKKbcyYsNXw2A //test ID xvar: 0 // test variant
But: this does not say that your Goal is working. It just says that your implementation of your check is correct and will be send to Google Analytics.
