Metadata Tracer

This Metadata tracer tool traces metadata for a URL configured in Property Manager. You can use it for the current property version active either on staging or production.

With this tool you can trace metadata tags applied to a request and visually confirm if the appropriate metadata tags got applied in the right moment.
