Requirements

  • Android API level 19 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 Android 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

Take note of the Publisher ID, Consumer Key, and Consumer Secret as these are needed in the next step.

User Profile

Step 2: Configure mediation settings for your AdMob ad unit

You need to add DT Exchange to the mediation configuration for your ad unit.

First, sign in to your AdMob account. Next, navigate to the Mediation tab. If you have an existing mediation group you'd like to modify, click the name of that mediation group to edit it and skip ahead to Add DT Exchange as an ad source.

To create a new mediation group, select Create Mediation Group.

AdMob mediation tab

Enter your ad format and platform, then click Continue.

Give your mediation group a name, and select locations to target. Next, set the mediation group status to Enabled and click Add Ad Units.

Associate this mediation group with one or more of your existing AdMob ad units. Then click Done.

You should now see the ad units card populated with the ad units you selected.

Add DT Exchange as an ad source

In the Waterfall card, select Add Ad Source.

Select DT Exchange and it should take you to Add ad source: DT Exchange

Ad source

Enable the Optimize switch. Then, enter the Publisher ID, Consumer Key, and Consumer Secret obtained in the previous section.

Review and check the Authorization checkbox to set up ad source optimization for DT Exchange. Enter an eCPM value for DT Exchange and click Continue.

Ad source

Enter the Application ID and Placement ID obtained in the previous section and click 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 implementation dependency with the latest version of the DT Exchange SDK and adapter in the app-level build.gradle file:

repositories {
    google()
    mavenCentral()
}

...
dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:21.2.0'
    implementation 'com.google.ads.mediation:DT Exchange:8.2.0.0'
}
...

Manual integration

  • Download the latest version of the DT Exchange SDK for Android and add the following files to your project:

    • ia-mraid-kit-release-x.y.z.aar
    • ia-sdk-core-release-x.y.z.aar
    • ia-video-kit-release-x.y.z.aar
  • Navigate to the DT Exchange adapter artifacts on Google's Maven Repository. Select the latest version, download the DT Exchange adapter's .aar file, and add it to your project.

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.

Java

import com.fyber.inneractive.sdk.external.InneractiveAdManager;
// ...

InneractiveAdManager.setGdprConsent(true);
InneractiveAdManager.setGdprConsentString("myGdprConsentString");

Kotlin

import com.fyber.inneractive.sdk.external.InneractiveAdManager
// ...

InneractiveAdManager.setGdprConsent(true)
InneractiveAdManager.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 AdMob 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.

Java

import com.fyber.inneractive.sdk.external.InneractiveAdManager;
// ...

InneractiveAdManager.setUSPrivacyString("myUSPrivacyString");

Kotlin

import com.fyber.inneractive.sdk.external.InneractiveAdManager
// ...

InneractiveAdManager.setUSPrivacyString("myUSPrivacyString")

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's age to the DT Exchange SDK.

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

Java

Bundle extras = new Bundle();
extras.putInt(InneractiveMediationDefs.KEY_AGE, 10);

AdRequest request = new AdRequest.Builder()
       .addNetworkExtrasBundle(FyberMediationAdapter.class, extras)
       .build();

Kotlin

var extras = Bundle()
extras.putInt(InneractiveMediationDefs.KEY_AGE, 10)

var adrequest = AdRequest.Builder()
       .addNetworkExtrasBundle(FyberMediationAdapter::class.java, extras)
       .build()

Error codes

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

com.google.ads.mediation.fyber.FyberMediationAdapter

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 AdMob UI are missing/invalid.
103 The requested ad size does not match a DT Exchange supported banner size.
105 DT Exchange SDK loaded an ad but returned an unexpected controller.
106 Ad is not ready to display.
200-399 DT Exchange SDK returned an error. See code for more details.
