How to introduce New Extension and Tag?

Hello,
i see there are many extentions available. But unable to find the way to create a New Extention.
Actually we want to create our own extension named "Ekomi Integration". Which should have some configuration fields.

1. Is there a way to create own extention. which will collect the Orders data whenever an order is placed or its status is changed and send the order's data to eKomi System by hitting an API?

2. Is thing can be achieved by Adding a New Tag? If yes then please let me know how can i introduce new tag called "Ekomi Integration", which should have vender configuration fields and sends the orders data to eKomi System by hitting an eKomi API?

Re: How to introduce New Extension and Tag?

Hi @namir,

What you are describing would be a new Tag in the Tealium Tag Marketplace. To get your tag added, I recommend starting here: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Become-a-Technology-Partner/bd-p/become-a-technology-partner

In the meantime, you can get started by creating a Tealium Custom Container: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/iQ-Tag-Management/Tealium-Custom-Container/ta-p/14015

In Tealium iQ, we distinguish between Tags and Extensions as follows:

* A Tag is a Tealium wrapper around a 3rd party vendor's JavaScript API, which allows data from the Tealium Data Layer to be sent to any 3rd party API endpoint. This would fit with the Ekomi use case

* An extension is a tool to help transform data from the data layer into different formats, so that a single data variable in the Data Layer is able to be used by multiple different vendors. For example, an array of product IDs may be required in array format by 1 vendor, but a comma-separated string by another. An extension allows this source data to be transformed into either format before being sent to a vendor. Extensions are very powerful, and can also do much more than just transforming data, but this is the main use case. See here for more details: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/iQ-Tag-Management/Extensions/ta-p/13649

I look forward to seeing the Ekomi tag in the Tealium Marketplace soon :-)

Craig.

Thanks for your reply. 

We are eKomi, we have partnership with tealium and Miki is our point of contact.

As i see there is vendor configuration, I have to create configuration and sends eCommerce extension variables data to eKomi api.

Please let me know how to add new tag in Tealium, What is the documentation link or sample to add/edit the configuration and capture the eCommerce extension variable values..?

Share me the documentation link or send me the sample?

Re: How to introduce New Extension and Tag?

@namir you should start by using the Tealium Custom Container tag: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/iQ-Tag-Management/Tealium-Custom-Container/ta-p/14015

The master link to all the Tealium iQ documentation, including extensions and tags, is here: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/iQ-Tag-Management/tkb-p/tealium-iq-documentation

Alternatively, if you submit all the documentation in the partnership form, our integrations team will be able to create the tag template as an officially-supported tag, and deploy it to the tag marketplace.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
