I have a problem with tracking Google Analytics on localhost with Google Tag Manager. I can see on the API for Analytics (, all i need to do is to set cookieDomain to none. I do not find this option in Google Tag Manager. Does anyone know how to do this?

The documentation referenced it is about the Universal Analytics (new GA API version).

To solve this problem, you have two options:

1) Using the traditional tag "Google Analytics", in 'More settings' > 'Domains and Directories' > 'Domain Name':


2) Or switch to the "Universal Analytics" tag in Tag Google Manager, configure the required fields and in 'More settings' > 'Cookie Configuration' > 'Cookie Domain':


In both cases, this option should be turned off before the launch of the site.


We already upgraded to Universal. So, Fabio's solution 2) worked for us just fine.
