Custom Event Properties

Map your custom event properties by setting their field names in CJ property name and adding the field name holding the value in Your event property. E.g. if you inputsizein the CJ property name and items.0.product.size in Your event property, you'll have a custom event property in CJ calledsizewith a value based on the content of the field items.0.product.size [2].

[1] This feature allows you to set an event property holding a dynamic value by adding two open braces ({{) in front of your property name and two close braces (}}) at the end (E.g. {{myEventPropertyPathAndName}}). [2] Using "dots" (".") you can navigate deeper to the specific property you want to get the value of. See Events reference for more details on the standard field names by event. You can also freely set custom fields: there are no boundaries.

Field mappings

Most properties can be remapped using our "Smart Mapping" feature. Setting the configuration field CJ Event Cookie Name is not mandatory if the "Smart Mapping" field Click Id (cjevent) is set. The latter has precedence over the former.
