  2. Find the latest version in the file location using your client, e.g. CyberDuck.

  2. Look for a state of PROCESSED for a successful ingest.

Add a Dashboard Report Looking at the File Definition

Use the following steps to add a dashboard report that looks at the file definition specified:

  1. From AudienceStream, add a report for the Omnichannel file definition you are checking.

  2. If successful, you should see the number of rows in the latest file definition reflected in the number shown in the report for the date when it was ingested/processed, as shown in the following example:
    Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 14.23.04.png
    The example shows that, on February 20th, 602,154 rows of data were processed for this file definition.

Check Audience Discovery for Enriched Data Values

Use the following steps to check Audience Discovery for enriched data values:

  1. Check the Discover > Audience Discovery report for attributes you are expecting values for.
    If you checked LIVE or HISTORIC reports, you should see some visitors with the values you are expecting for a particular attribute you are defining using Omnichannel.

    You will only see values for users who have visited the site since you ingested the Omnichannel file.

    If you are not using the legacy Omnichannel column mappings, you will need to ensure that you have mapped the Omnichannel data sources to AudienceStream attributes, as shown in the following example:

Log in as a Visitor on Your Site to Check Your Attributes

Use the following steps to log in as a visitor on your site to check your attributes:

Tealium iQ technical knowledge is required to perform this task. If you are in doubt, contact the Tealium Support Desk for assistance.

Though it is unlikely to be an issue, be aware that this step will cause AudienceStream to show that one of your visitors has revisited the site.

  1. Open a Chrome Incognito window and declare a data source that will ensure that you are identified as one of the users in your Omnichannel file.
    The following example checks a visitor with an ID of in a the column Email Addr.

  2. To locate the visitor attribute this relates to, check the File Definition.

  3. You now know that you are looking for the Customer Email
  4. Set a value for Customer Email, as follows:

  5. As shown in the previous example, if you set the customerEmail data source, you are "pretending" to be this visitor.
  6. The easiest way to call this function is to use the Google Chrome Console while on a page and performing this step:
    Your browser will now respond as if it is this visitor.
  7. Run a trace and check your attributes to see if any of the values from the Omnichannel file are present in your profile.

    You will need to have your Omnichannel columns mapped to attributes in order to see values here, as described in previous steps.

  8. Run a trace and check your attributes to see if any of the values from the Omnichannel file are present in your profile.

    Check the Trace me as a new visitor checkbox to ensure that the browser starts using a new visitor profile.
