We will show you how to enable the Permutive Browser Extension.
Permutive's Chrome extension allows you to validate your Permutive deployment. You can check what data is being collected if there are any schema errors, what cohorts you belong to, and if all ad requests are targeted.
Tip: Click here to download the browser extension
After installing the Permutive extension, please follow these steps to get full access: 1. Right-click on the extension icon and select 'Options'
2. Enter your organization ID and click 'Save'.
Note: You can find your Organization ID in the Permutive dashboard under 'Settings > Workspace'
3. To enable the popup, click on the icon, which will be black if Permutive is detected and you are allowed.
The Permutive extension currently has 3 views:
- You can see all events which have been collected on the current pageview
- By clicking on the event name you can see all of the properties of the event
- If an event is rejected, you will see an error message
Note: Generally there are 2 reasons why events can be rejected: The event is unknown or there might be schema rejections. The extension shows why an event has been rejected, and in the case of schema rejections, you'll see detailed error messages when inspecting the event properties.
- The Segments tab shows you all of the cohorts you currently fall into
- You’ll only see cohort codes, so you’ll need to look up the cohort names in the dashboard
- If you're using Google Ad Manager, this tab will give you an overview of all ad requests on the current page
- You can see whether the ad request was targeted by Permutive or not
- Click on an individual ad request to see more details, like targeting keys
- Ads triggered not using the 'googletag' object will not be shown.
Tip: A check indicates that the ad was targeted with Permutive cohorts from a previous page. A star indicates that the ad was targeted with real-time cohorts implemented on that page. This new feature was added as a visibility function to inform about ads related to your cohorts.
