Numeric events in Adobe Analytics

Hi,

 

I'm wondering how to set numeric events in an Adobe Analytics tag. Normally, you'd set event50=1234, and then include event50 in the event list. But how do we do it in Tealium iQ?

 

Thanks

Thanks Steve. Unfortunately there is not enough information in that post about Numeric Events specifically.

 

For anyone else looking for a solution, we got this back from Tealium support. Let's say that the source of the number you want to record is a JS variable called "sourceNumber" and the numeric event you want to set is event1. Leave the event unmapped in the Adobe Analytics tag and just add this in a JavaScript Code extension:

 

if (sourceNumber !== undefined) {
u.addEvent("event1","" + sourceNumber);
}

 

Remember to scope the JavaScript Code extension to the Adobe Analytics / SiteCatalyst tag.

I see a small typepo in your code:

Just want to update in case anyone else is using your code as a reference.

 

 

if (typeof sourceNumber !== 'undefined') {
  u.addEvent("event1","" + sourceNumber);
}

//also this will work
if (typeof sourceNumber !== 'undefined') {
u.addEvent("event1=" + sourceNumber);
}

// you can also pass in an array of strings
u.addEvent(["event1=10.50", "event2", "event3"]);
