Site Scan is a deprecated feature and is no longer offered or supported, but will remain functional for accounts that previously enabled it.

Using the Site Scan tool to crawl through your site and verify your Tealium tag implementation is a simple process.
To use the Site Scan tool, contact your Account Manager. We recommend that you perform an initial Site Scan to validate Tealium's code in your website. After that, only use Site Scan after a major site change.
To create a Scan:
You may specify either a site map or a site map index.
From the drop-down list, select the scan you wish to run and click Run.
Any user can view a scan's report but only users with Publish to Prod permissions can run a scan. You cannot halt a scan mid-process. To halt a scan, contact your account manager.
Tealium processes only one scan at a time. Adding scans while one is running adds those scans to a queue for processing later. Scans process in the order in which they are received. Contact your Tealium Account Manager to cancel a scan. The time it takes to finish the scan depends on the number of URLs included in the site map(s). Scans require at least one site map to run. You cannot run a site scan without uploading a site map.
Site Scan is only interested in two parameters from the the site map: the URL's location and the URL's priority. Site Scan will crawl through the URLs based on their assigned priority, starting with higher priority and moving to lower. Valid priority values range from 0.0 to 1.0, with 1.0 indicating the highest priority.
Tealium's best practices indicate that when you use the Site Scan tool, you should perform an initial Site Scan. Perform additional site scans when your site undergoes a significant change. After the scan finishes, the latest report displays in the Site Scans section of the Reports tab. Click on the latest report to view the summary.
The details for a report list the date you ran the scan, who received the notification email, the profile(s) the scan found, and the number of pages containing or missing Tealium's code.
The following table describes the report columns for each scan:
|DATE||The date the scan started.|
|STATUS||This column shows the status of a scan. The status displays as either 'Queued', the percentage of the scan completed, or 'Finished'.|
|TOTAL||The total number of URLs Site Scan found in the site maps you provided.|
|MANAGED||The number of pages that have the proper Tealium code included. The percent of total URLs is also included.|
|W/ UNMANAGED TAGS||The number of pages with yags that are not managed through Tealium iQ.|
|UNMANAGED||The number of pages that are missing Tealium's code. The percent of total URLs is also included.|
|ERRORS||The number of pages that returned a 404: Page Not Found error. The percent of total URLs is also included.|
|ADDED||The number of new URLs since the last time you ran the scan. The first time you run a scan, this value will be zero.|
|REMOVED||The number of URLs removed since the last time you ran the scan. The first time you run a scan, this value will be zero.|
You can view the specifics of a report by clicking on the Open Report button. You can optionally filter the view to see only the changes that occurred since the last scan.
Site Scan has the ability to detect unmanaged Tags and capture their configurations. To drop-down a list of unmanaged Tags, click the Tags not managed by Tealium iQ bar. If you want to manage any Tag from this list through Tealium iQ , click the Add button next to it.
To view a list of URLs for Pages not managed by Tealium iQ or Page could not be reached click the corresponding bar.
You can open the report for a scan that is still running, but be aware that not all of the data is available.
Site Scan cannot check pages that have a form gate, i.e. a form that must be filled out by the visitor before he or she can proceed. Check these pages manually.
If a page is using Tealium's code with a reference other than the standard utag.js file reference, that page will show up in the scan's report as missing the utag.js file.
Certain types of pages, particularly pages that are dynamically generated, such as thank you pages, may not show up on a site map. As a result, Site Scan does not check them. These pages require manual validation that Tealium's code is included. To check dynamic pages for unmanaged Tags, use the Scan Companion tool, available only for the Chrome browser.
