Send hit event twice with different tracking ID (tid)

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

When I send the same event parameters with a different "tid" twice, the second hit event is ignored (i.e. it doesn't show up GA Reporting dashboard).

 

Below is an example URL. Swapping the order of tids sent yields the same result. If I send "UA-aaa" first and then "UA-bbb", "UA-aaa" will have the event and not "UA-bbb". If "UA-bbb" is sent first, it will show up but not "UA-aaa".

Any tips? Is this a bug?

Hi Perry are you sending the events with measurement protocol or web collection analytics.js? If analytics.js is the case and you send 2 events to 2 different properties you should use multi tracker support - named trackers and send each event by explicitly A) create 2 tracker objects B) send events for each tracker referring to its name.
