We wish to track our own custom parameters.
In the case of a user entering the website for the first time through this url “test.com/home?utm_source=foo&ad_id=bar”
Amplitude would capture utm_source, which is “foo”, as his initial_utm_source. But wouldn’t capture ad_id=bar at all.
How can we setup Amplitude in a way that ad_id gets captured as well as initial_ad_id gets set.

Thanks for this question
@edwinsevlaraj. I found this thread with some additional details to help. Keep us posted as you make progress.
Here are the parameters which are supported via utm tracking
I’m not quite sure if you can map anyone of the above to your custom ad_id or use the Attribution API.
Another approach would be to extract this id using a derived property on your captured page url ( if you are capturing this one ) and use this for charting.
Hope this helps.
