Live Debugging

Live Debugging on Magic Pixel shows all the tags that are firing in real-time on a particular page. As the user moves across the page that is loaded with the tags, they get fired and the live data is shown on the live debugging page inside Magic Pixel.

Debugging happens for both the server-side tags and browser-side tags and the event data will be populated in the live debugging section. For all the tags that are fired, you can view its key information like the event's time stamp, the page from which it got fired, provider details, the tag details, the platform from which the page was accessed and the status of the tag fire wether it successfully got fired or not.

For server-side tags, you can additionally access its tag request details as well, where you can review the request details and its response. This helps you analyse your server-side tags' performance.

Debugging of Specific Sessions

On Magic Pixel, you can debug specific sessions as well based on your requirement. To conduct debugging of specific sessions:

Step 1: Open live debugging on Magic Pixel and click on "Start Debugging"

Step 2: You'll see a popup as seen in the image below. If you'd like to see events exclusively from your session on the website, you'll need to enter a Debug ID. Generating Debug ID is straightforward. Go to your brand's website. Open the developer console, enter the following command:


You'll see an ID as response printed on the console. Copy the Debug ID into the Live Debug text field and click on Start.

Once you enter the debug ID and start the debugging, all the tags (both server-side and browser-side tags) that are fired in that particular session will start populating. This way you can review all the tag fires of a specific session on Magic Pixel. If you'd like to listen to all the pixels fired across the site, ignore adding the debug ID in the popup and just click on "Start" button.

Filtering the events

Ạs all the events' data of the fired tags are populated in the live debugging page, you can apply filters as well to view only the events based on a particular field or type or parameter.

You can filter out events based on: "Tag Type", "Page Name", "Provider", "Device Type", "Language", "Domain" and "Status of the Tag"
