How to correctly specify macros in a tracking-link

Ad link for mobile apps should contain the following macros (valuetrack parameters, URL parameters):
    • {{advertiser_id}} – advertiser's id;
    • {{campaign_id}} – advertising campaign id;
    • {{campaign_name}} – advertising campaign name;
    • {{banner_id}} – banner id;
    • {{geo}} – region id where user came from.
    Correspondence table: id - name of the region
    • {{gender}} – sex of the user who clicked the link;
    • {{age}} – age of the user who clicked the link;
    • {{random}} – random number. It is often used in the links (audit pixels) for more accurate impressions counting. Assumed values: number. Example: https://tag.com?utm_campaign=abc&rnd={{random}}
    • {{impression_weekday}} – day of the week in which the banner impression took place. Used in the reference mark. Example: mon, tue, sat;
    • {{impression_hour}} – hour at which the impression took place at Moscow time in the 24-hour format. Example: 01, 11, 22;
    • {{user_timezone}} – time zone of the user who received impressions. Example: +3
    • {{search_phrase}} – search phrase of the user.
    These parameters will allow for receiving sufficient data to optimize advertising campaigns. To transfer other parameters see your tracker reference.
