Create a mobile profile

A mobile profile is used with an installation of one of the following mobile application platforms:

How it works

Profiles in your iQ Tag Management account are configured for use on a website by default. Any profile can be activated for use within a native mobile installation. You can activate an existing profile for mobile use or create a new profile. Using separate profiles for your mobile apps allows you to manage settings and vendor tracking deployed to each of your mobile apps.

Create a new profile for a mobile app

We recommend that you create a separate profile for each mobile application that you intend to install Tealium on. For example, the most common profile names for mobile apps are: mobile-ios and mobile-android.

Activate a mobile profile

Use the following steps to activate a profile for use on mobile:

  1. Log in and load the profile that you intend for use for your mobile application.

  6. Click Save.

This profile can now be referenced in your Tealium for Mobile application by referencing the account name, profile name, and publish environment.

Standard mobile variables are added to the profile and available to the data layer settings for use with tags and extensions.
