Affiliate Window Tag trying to implementing the conversion tracking for this tag, but find it is very much tied up with ecommerce extension, and did not find where I could change the channel AWIN.Tracking.Sale.channel = 'aw'; should I touch template?

Hey Gang,

 

You don't need to edit the template to set the channel parameter because the template is flexible enough to let you map to custom destinations. So, even though the channel parameter isn't explicitly listed, you can manually map a data source that contains "aw" and enter "channel" into the text field for that mapping. You can read a little more on manual mapping here: (https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Tealium-iQ/Data-Source-Types/ta-p/10645#mapping_custom I tried this myself and I was able to set the channel parameter to aw. To do this:

 

  1. I Set up a data source to contain the value "aw". You can create a Set Data Values extension to do this, if you don't already have one. I created a data source called aw_channel_parameter and set it to the text "aw". Here's our article on the Set Data Values extension: https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Tealium-iQ/Set-Data-Values-Extension/ta-p/13645
  2. I went into the tag's configurations and mapped aw_channel_parameter to the custom destination of "channel".
  3. I saved and published. I was then able to see that channel had a value of aw in the AWIN.Tracking.Sale object. Try this out and let us know if it works or not.

 

Thanks, Seth
