Wrapping DTM Code in a Try/Catch



Our developers have indicated in several tests that conflicts have occasionally caused issues with the loading of the DTM header library, so that when the footer runs, it generated a JavaScript error due to the _satellite.pageBottom() function not being found.

Are there any circumstances where wrapping the pageBottom function in a try/catch might cause issues?

Hi ,

We have not observed any circumstances where wrapping the pageBottom function in a try/catch block caused any issue. We have also tested the same on our test environment and the results were positive.Please find below try/catch block script being used.

To verify that our dynamic tag management header library is loading properly on our site, we used the command  _satellite.settings.notifications = true;  in  try block  and If the code was not properly installed, we will get the reference error: _satellite is not defined  and the same will caught by catch block  and  flag is set to 1 . 

Ultimately the  finally block runs and if flag is not 1 i.e. Header library is properly loaded, call the _satellite.pageBottom(); function.

<script> try{ _satellite.settings.notifications = true; } catch(err) { flag=1; console.log(err); } finally { if(flag!=1) { _satellite.pageBottom(); } else { alert("DTM Header Library not properly Loaded"); } } </script> </body> </html>

Please make sure to initialize the flag to 0 at the start of the head tag , like below :

<head> <script> var flag=0; </script> <script src="//assets.adobedtm.com/satelli4b6f12d-staging.js"></script>


Please let us know if you have any questions or queries.

Thanks & Regards
