We have set up the cross-domain tracking following the instructions of this link:
cross-tracking domains: example.com,another-example.com
cross-domain tracking: on
But we have noticed that the links are being decorated also when the URL goes to another subdomain:
www.example.com to booking.example.com.
I think this is not necessary with Google Universal Analytics.
Are we missing anything in our configuration?

@vicente_peris, as I understand it, it depends on the site security policy on that website - some will accept 1st party cookies for the parent domain, some will only accept 1st party cookies for that exact server.
You have the subdomain
example.com added to your list.
This covers all your subdomains so any domain that is
*.example.com will be covered and also linked up.
Hopefully that helps explain what is going on.
From my understanding you do not need to include the
example.com in the list as the cookie will do the matching for you.
As that will be set on the domain
example.com. You only need to add domains that are explictily different e.g.
If you are still having this issue, can I suggest raising a support request, and one of the support team can walk through this with you.
