This guide shows you how to use the Google Mobile Ads SDK to load and display ads from DT Exchange using mediation, covering waterfall integrations. It covers how to add DT Exchange to an ad unit's mediation configuration and how to integrate the DT Exchange SDK and adapter into an iOS app.

Requirements

  • iOS deployment target of 10.0 or higher
  • Latest Google Mobile Ads SDK

Step 1: Set up DT Exchange

Add new app and ad placement

Sign up or log in to DT Exchange Console.

Click on the Add App button to add your app.

Manage Apps

Select iOS under Platform, fill out the rest of the form, and click Add Placements.

Enter a name for the new placement in the field labeled Name your Placement and select your desired Placement Type from the dropdown list. Finally, click Save Placement.

Setup

App ID and Placement ID

Open the left navigation bar by hovering your mouse over it. Then click Apps from the left menu.

Menu

On the App Management page, take note of the App ID next to your app.

App ID

Select your app, navigate to the Placements tab, and click on the copy icon next to Placement Name. Take note of the Placement ID.

Placement ID

Publisher ID, Consumer Key and Consumer Secret

Click on your username from the left menu and select User Profile.

User Profile Menu

User Profile

Step 2: Configure mediation settings for your Ad Manager ad unit

Sign in to your Ad Manager account. Navigate to Delivery > Yield groups and click the New yield group button.

Enter a unique Name for your yield group, set the Status to Active, select your Ad Format, and set the Inventory type to Mobile App. Under the Targeting > Inventory section, select the Ad Unit to which you want to add mediation.

Next, click the Add yield partner button.

If you already have a Yield partner for the DT Exchange, you can simply select it. Otherwise, select Create a new yield partner.

Select DT Exchange as the Ad network and enter a unique Name. Enable Mediation and turn on Automatic data collection. Enter the Publisher ID, Consumer Secret, and Consumer Key obtained in the previous section. Click Save when done.

Once the Yield partner is selected, choose Mobile SDK Mediation as the Integration type, iOS as the Platform, and Active as the Status. Enter the Application ID and Placement ID obtained in the previous section and a Default CPM value.

Click Save at the bottom of the page when done.

Rewarded ads

In the settings for your rewarded ad unit, provide values for the reward amount and reward type. To provide the same reward to the user no matter which ad network is served, select the Apply to all networks in Mediation groups box.

Rewarded

If you don't apply this setting, the DT Exchange adapter passes back the reward specified in the DT Exchange dashboard when creating the placement.

For more information on setting reward values for AdMob ad units, see Create an ad unit.

Step 3: Import the DT Exchange SDK and adapter

Add the following line to your project's Podfile:

pod 'GoogleMobileAdsMediationFyber'

From the command line run:

pod install --repo-update

Manual integration

  • Download the latest version of the DT Exchange SDK for iOS and link the following frameworks to your project:
    • IASDKCore.framework
    • IASDKMRAID.framework
    • IASDKVideo.framework
  • Download the latest version of the DT Exchange adapter from the download link in Changelog and link FyberAdapter.framework in your project.
  • Add the following frameworks to your project:
    • libxml2.2.tbd

Optional steps

Under the Google EU User Consent Policy, you must ensure that certain disclosures are given to, and consents obtained from, users in the European Economic Area (EEA) regarding the use of device identifiers and personal data. This policy reflects the requirements of the EU ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When seeking consent, you must identify each ad network in your mediation chain that may collect, receive, or use personal data and provide information about each network's use. Google currently is unable to pass the user's consent choice to such networks automatically.

DT Exchange contains an API that lets you forward user consent to their SDK. The following sample code shows how to pass consent information to the DT Exchange SDK manually. Should you choose to pass consent information to the DT Exchange SDK manually, it is recommended that this code is called prior to requesting ads through the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

Swift

import IASDKCore
// ...

IASDKCore.sharedInstance().gdprConsent = IAGDPRConsentType.given
IASDKCore.sharedInstance().gdprConsentString = "myGdprConsentString"

Objective-C

#import <IASDKCore/IASDKCore.h>
// ...

[IASDKCore.sharedInstance setGDPRConsent:YES];
[IASDKCore.sharedInstance setGDPRConsentString:@"myGdprConsentString"];

Visit DT Exchange's GDPR Resource Page and their GDPR implementation guide for more details and the values that may be provided in the method.

Add DT Exchange to GDPR ad partners list

Follow the steps in GDPR settings to add DT Exchange to the GDPR ad partners list in the Ad Manager UI.

CCPA

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) requires giving California state residents the right to opt out of the "sale" of their "personal information" (as the law defines those terms), with the opt-out offered via a prominent "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" link on the "selling" party's homepage. The CCPA preparation guide offers the ability to enable restricted data processing for Google ad serving, but Google is unable to apply this setting to each ad network in your mediation chain. Therefore, you must identify each ad network in your mediation chain that may participate in the sale of personal information and follow guidance from each of those networks to ensure compliance with CCPA.

DT Exchange contains an API that lets you forward user consent to their SDK. The following sample code shows how to pass consent information to the DT Exchange SDK manually. Should you choose to pass consent information to the DT Exchange SDK manually, it is recommended that this code is called prior to requesting ads through the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

Swift

import IASDKCore
// ...

IASDKCore.sharedInstance().ccpaString = "myCCPAConsentString"

Objective-C

#import <IASDKCore/IASDKCore.h>
// ...

[IASDKCore.sharedInstance setCCPAString:@"myCCPAConsentString"];

Visit DT Exchange's CCPA Resource Page and their CCPA implementation guide for more details and the values that may be provided in the method.

Network-specific parameters

The DT Exchange adapter supports an additional parameter to pass the user data as an IAUserData object to the DT Exchange SDK.

Here's a code example of how to set this parameter:

Swift

let userData = IAUserData.build({ builder in
  builder.age = 23
  builder.gender = IAUserGenderType.male
  builder.zipCode = "1234"
}];

let request = GADRequest()
let extras = GADMAdapterFyberExtras()
extras.userData = userData
request.register(extras)

Objective-C

IAUserData *userData = [IAUserData build:^(id<IAUserDataBuilder> _Nonnull builder) {
    builder.age = 23;
    builder.gender = IAUserGenderTypeMale;
    builder.zipCode = @"1234";
}];

GADRequest *request = [GADRequest request];
GADMAdapterFyberExtras *extras = [[GADMAdapterFyberExtras alloc] init];
extras.userData = userData;
[request registerAdNetworkExtras:extras];

Consult the DT Exchange integration guide for more information.

Error codes

If the adapter fails to receive an ad from DT Exchange, you can check the underlying error from the ad response using GADResponseInfo.adNetworkInfoArray under the following class:

GADMediationAdapterFyber

Here are the codes and accompanying messages thrown by the DT Exchange adapter when an ad fails to load:

Error code Reason

101 DT Exchange server parameters configured in the Ad Manager UI are missing/invalid.
