If a value is not passed into dc_rdid or data-dcm-resettable-device-id, will it cause any problems?
Yes and no.
Yes, it may cause problems as omitting this identifier will mean that the advertiser will lack cross-device, conversion tracking, rotation, and reach reporting on any mobile app inventory (display and video).
No, omitting this field will not cause ad serving problems. It is an optional parameter. So, if the advertiser does not need the cross-device or mobile reporting, it is OK to leave this parameter in and leave it empty, or to remove the parameter altogether.
If you have additional questions, please contact the party that provided you with the tags.
