Not able to use s.linkTrackVars & s.linkTrackEvents.

Level 2

Hi Team,

 

I am using "Third Party Tag" section of DTM for hosting my code but in this section I am facing couple of problems -

 

1. It doesn't recognize any reference of s object.

2. I was able to create a reference of s object (var s=new Appmeasurement();) but not it doesn't recognize any of the methods of s object like s.linkTrackVars & s.linkTrackEvents.

 

So for custom link tracking how do I solve the problem of using s.linkTrackVars & s.linkTrackEvents in Third Party Tag section? In general how do I use s object in Third Party Tag section of DTM?

 

Please help.

 

Regards,

~Partha.

Hi Partha,

The Adobe Analytics object from the tool is local to DTM web property and cannot be used as it is in the third party code section.

 

Use the following code:

var s = _satellite.getToolsByType('sc')[0].getS(); s.linkTrackVars="prop1,events"; s.linkTrackEvents="event1"; s.events="event1"; s.prop1="test"; s.tl(this,"o","test",null,"navigate");

All of the Adobe Analytics tool have a type of sc, so if you have more than one tool, make sure to select the right index.

Please confirm if it solves your issue.

 

Best regards.

Hi Alexis,

 

Thanks for responding and your are absolutely correct.

 

I had already implemented it last week and it is working fine - that is the only way to do it. 

 

Take care,
