Launch Rule Stack




Ideally Launch would include the same functionality to mimic the _satellite.dtmRuleStackArray functionality that is in DTM.  Doing so provides a great audit mechanism, as well as a way to perform a gap analysis for rules that are not in use.

mea culpa?

I think that at some point in the past, I wrote a monkey patch on top of _satellite.notify that would create and maintain _satellite.dtmRuleStackArray...   I'm pretty sure that what you're looking at is a custom artifact and is not part of vanilla DTM.

I found that since _satellite.notify is called regardless when any rule is fired, it was a convenient intercept to grab the rule name and apply it to an array.

Anyway, the good news is that you don't need to rely on a hack to get the rule name anymore.

You can grab it like so:

//This is a rule condition (type = core : custom code)""Rule Name Is : ",event.$;

return true;

Also, you can just use data element syntax in the UI if you prefer... %event.$

The _bad?_ news is that if you wanted to do this automagically on every rule (from within the property), I think you'd be out of luck.

The _good_ news is that there is now a set of monitoring hooks for Launch that you could use to good effect with a little bit of coding.  See Aaron Hardy's post on this topic.
