Populating a tag with a js alert in DTM is very simple. You just need to place the js alert into a third party tag in the 'Javascript / Third Party Tags' section of a rule. If you just want to test the tag, it's likely best to set this up in a page load rule so no on-page action is needed to trigger the rule fire.

Here's a few links that may provide some additional context if needed:

In case the console is not open, you can use the built-in DTM function _satellite.notify('message',1) as well. It provides the additional capability of handling multiple error levels.

Using console.log() for testing can be a more efficient method, since you don't have to worry about any the code being interrupted while the browser waits on the alert popup.
