This guide describes how you can use Tealium Tag Manager (TTM) to set up and deploy your Native & Search Dot tag. Using TTM, you can create a custom script for your native feed ads across your webpages.

  1. Look for this code snippet:
if (u.data.ev) {
    u.data.qstrings.ev = u.data.ev;
}

And add the following code snippet below it:

 if (u.data.product_id) {
       if (u.typeOf(u.data.product_id) === "array") {
           u.data.qstrings.product_id = u.data.product_id.join(",");
       }else{
            u.data.qstrings.product_id = u.data.product_id;
       }
}

The code snippet above allows the template to handle product_id in either String or Array formats. If there are multiple product ids, Oath accepts the comma-delimited product id string. (For example: ‘prod1,prod2,prod3’) The code snippet above will convert arrays into comma-separated strings.
