If we have two GA tags and the requirement is to send a collect event to one specific GA tag using utag.link() method (javascript extension). what will be the syntax?

Note: The mapped variables names (event category, event action, and event label) are same in the both GA tags. How to differentiate using utag.link syntax or any other extension.

Hi @kunal_s ,

You could use the syntax of utag.link(data_object, callback, [uid_array]); You can reference the tag specific uid in [uid_array] for firing the particular GA tag.

Reference to the link:

https://docs.tealium.com/platforms/javascript/api/tracking-functions/#utag-link

Example:

considering your Tag id as 12,

utag.link({....} , [12]);

 

Thanks

An alternative solution, though the previous repliers is ideal and if you don't have dev resources, would be to use load rules based on the the values you are passing. So only allow the GA tag to fire if the utag.link() call has specific variable values for each of your GA tag.
