Hi Tarun,

I'd do that with a session-scope data-layer delivered custom dimension in GTM [1].

Hi Tarun,

Keep in mind that if you're using Salesforce as your CRM the lead ID queried via API will carry an extra 3 characters at the end of the ID for a total of 18, causing it to get represented differently than the 15 character ID that would appear through the native UI reporting.
