Google Analytics gtag custom dimensions and metrics mappings fail scoped to page_view

Hi 

We have custom dimensions and metrics mappings that we need to be scoped only to tealium event view.

With analytics.js tag we had this mapping pageview-dimension70 and it worked well, but with gtag.js the mapping is not sending the data, we tried as this cdm.dimension70-dimension70-pageview

Thanks in advance

Hi @ofernandezg ,

With GTAG some of the events mapping change slightly

In your case, you would use: cdm.dimension70-dimension70-page_view

If you try to add a new mapping, you can see the events that can be used in the Event Type dropdown

@oscar_fernandez, did you manage to resolve this?

We are seeing the same thing with a new implementation of gtag.

We're looking at bundling the gtag global snippet with utag.js, then having child events fire for both Doubleclick and Analytics. 

Custom dimensions are failing in GA.
