Products Variable

The products variable cannot be set using processing rules. In the mobile SDK, you must use a special syntax within the context data parameter to set products directly on the server call.

To set the products variable, set a context data key to "&&products", and set the value using the syntax defined for the products variable:

cdata["&&products"] = "Category;Product;Quantity;Price[,Category;Product;Quantity;Price]";

For example:

//create a context data dictionary
var cdata = new Windows.Foundation.Collections.PropertySet();

// add products, a purchase id, a purchase context data key, and any other data you want to collect.
// Note the special syntax for products
cdata["&&products"] = ";Running Shoes;1;69.95,;Running Socks;10;29.99";
cdata["m.purchaseid"] = "1234567890";
cdata["m.purchase"] = "1";

var ADB = ADBMobile;
// send the tracking call - use either a trackAction or TrackState call.
// trackAction example:
ADB.Analytics.trackAction("purchase", cdata);
// trackState example:
ADB.Analytics.trackState("Order Confirmation", cdata);

Note that products is set directly on the image request, and the other variables are set as context data:


All context data variables must be mapped using processing rules:


You do not need to map the products variable using processing rules since it is set directly on the image request by the SDK.
