Labels help you identify tags, load rules, and extensions in Tealium iQ for your own organization and filtering. This article will show you how to create, manage, search, and filter by labels, how to use labels as Resource Locks, and why you might want to use labels in the first place.
In this article:
A label is a tool in Tealium iQ for uniquely identifying an element such as a Tag, load rule, or extension. You specify what the label says and apply it to any element of your choice. You may apply as many labels as you need to a particular element.
Labels are especially useful for identifying large groups of elements that may be mostly similar but have a few important differences. For example, you might have numerous instances of the Floodlight tag for different regions of the world and you need to be able to differentiate them at a glance. In that case, you could apply labels to Tags depending on whether they serve the US, the UK, Europe, or Mexico.
Creating a label in your profile requires the Save Existing Versions permission. If you don't have this permission, please contact your Account Admin or Tealium Account Manager.
There are a couple of ways to create a label:
Label names can only contain unaccented letters (A–Z), numbers, and the underscore character.
If you have created a label with accented letters or punctuation marks prior to August 2017, rename the label without those characters before you can save any changes or add any users to it.
The new label automatically receives a color.
Resource Locks allow you to restrict access to elements such as variables, load rules, tags, and extensions. Any label can be converted to a Resource Lock, and only the users you specify will be able to change any elements the label has been applied to. Learn more about Resource Locks.
You can search through Tealium iQ based on labels. Enter the label you wish to search by into the search bar. The search bar will show results for labels applied to tags, load rules, and extensions. Selecting a particular label from the search bar will navigate you to that tab and filter the view of the console by that label.
