Creating a new Project
Creating a Project is your first step. All your Zones exist within a Project. More information on adding and managing Bluedot Canvas project can be found here.
Adding a Zone
You’ll need to create a Zone before you can start adding in specific Geofeatures. Each Zone can have one or many Geofeatures – that’s up to you and your use-case. More information on adding and managing Zones can be found here.
From Tealium’s server-side dashboard, add a new Data Source.
Add HTTP API Data Source
- Select the HTTP API data source, give it a name and press continue
- The Event Specifications are optional, you can skip this step for now
Data Source values
- From the Get Code tab we’ll use the following parameters:

Adding custom data through the SDK’s Custom Event Meta Data
The Custom Event Meta Data allows you to set additional event-specific data for the Bluedot SDK’s events. This is the method used to include additional information about the end-user, for example, the
For more information about the Custom Event Meta Data check this documentation.
The following list of fields are reserved for the Bluedot events. If you include one of these fields either in the Custom Event Meta Data, Zone Custom Data or the Webhook’s body fields they will be ignored.
If one of your fields clashes with the reserved keywords we recommend adding it a prefix to differentiate it from the Bluedot fields. For example
