Apply the following best practices in your implementation:
u.visitor_service_override = "https://visitor-service.example.co.uk";
The best practice is to use the All Pages load rule to load this tag on all pages.
If you use a more restrictive load rule, and you've noticed that you can't end a session in the trace tool, then a custom load rule is needed to allow the special event triggered by trace.
Create the following load rule and assign it to the Tealium Collect tag using the Match Any Rule option.
ut.event equals (ignore case) kill_visitor_session
