Labels help you identify data sources, event feeds, event specs, and attributes for your own organization and filtering. This article provides information on labels and how they are useful, and also shows you how to create, manage, search, and filter by labels.

What is a Label?

A label is a tool for uniquely identifying an element such as a data source, event feed, event spec, or attribute. You specify what the label says and apply it to any element of your choice. You may apply as many labels as you need to a particular element.

Why Use Labels?

Labels are especially useful for identifying large groups of elements that may be mostly similar but have a few important differences. For example, you might have several instances of the AudienceStream badge attribute "VIP – Past Purchases" for different users and need to differentiate between iOS and Android users. You can apply labels to AudienceStream attributes depending on the user's device and filter attributes using these labels.

How to Create a Label

Creating a label in your profile requires the Save Existing Versions permission. If you do not have this permission, contact your Account Admin or Tealium Account Manager.

The following sections describe how to create, edit, or delete a label.

Creating a Label

  1. Click one of the following to create a label for the item type:
    • Data Sources
    • Live Events > Event Feed
    • Event Specs
    • Event Attributes
    • Visitor/Visit Attributes
    • Audiences
  2. Click an item to expand the details.
  3. Expand the Add Label menu.add_label.png
  4. To add an existing label, select the label and click Apply.
  5. To add a new label, click Manage Labels.
    The Manage Labels dialog displays.
    • Click + Add Label.
    • In the Color field, select a color from the drop-down list.
    • In the Label Name field, enter a name for the label.
    • Click Save.

Label names can only contain unaccented letters (A–Z), numbers, and the underscore character. If you created a label with accented letters or punctuation marks prior to August 2017, you need to rename the label without those characters before you can save changes or add users to it.

    The label is now removed.
