Hi there, this is more a question than an actual issue

Depending on the location of some of our company's users,
we encounter tracking issues when some network filtering devices explicitly reject the _pk_ses cookies due to the fact that its value is set to ''

It would appear that value is hard-coded inside piwik.js

Question is :

can we edit piwik.js and replace the '*' character by some string of our choice without impacting Matomo's tracking & reporting routines? (we are running Matomo 3.7.0)

You could overwrite it with _paq.push(['setSessionCookie'], '1', ...) and it shouldn't cause any issues as far as I can see. Maybe we just need to set it to 1 instead of a *. @mattab do you maybe know why it is a * currently in https://github.com/matomo-org/matomo/blob/3.8.0-b5/js/piwik.js#L4259 ?

@tsteur don't think there is a reason for it, sounds good to replace with 1 :ok:
