AppNexus Plugin Integration

Important Notes

  • If you want to enable banner refresh, you should only do so with one SDK. Having refresh on both SDKs will result in duplicate requests. We recommend that you enable it for AppNexus and disable it for AerServ.

 

 

 

Step 1: Download iOS SDK and Required Adapter Files


Download latest AerServ iOS SDK here. The downloaded ZIP file contains both the SDK library and adapter files.

 

Step 2: Configure Your Project


      1. Follow AppNexus’s instructions on setting up their SDK for your project.
      2. Unzip the downloaded SDK package file and copy the AerServSDK.framework found at the path target/aerserv-ios-sdk/lib/ into your Xcode project.
      3. Add both the header and implementation file for AerServCustomEventBanner, AerServCustomEventInterstitial and AerServUtils into your project.
      4. In the General tab inside your project’s settingl, add the following to Linked Frameworks and Libraries.
          • AerServSDK.framework
          • WebKit.framework
          • libxml2.2.tbd
      5. Next go to Build Settings and add the following configuration:
          • Add the linker flag -ObjC to the "Other Linker Flags" field inside the Linking section.
          • Add the directory path to the AerServSDK.framework to “Framework Search Paths" inside the Search Paths section; select it as recursive.
      6. In your AppDelegate, add #import <AerSerSDK/AerSerSDK.h>. Initialize the AerServSDK inside application:didiFinishLaunchingWithOptions.

        [AerservSDK initializeWithAppID:@"YOUR APPID"]

 

Step 3: Configure Ad Settings on AerServ Web Interface


    1. Follow instruction to set up AerServ Placements and Ad Sources.
    2. For banner ads, please set refresh interval to Never. If you want banner refresh, enable it with AppNexus instead.

 

Step 4: Configure Ad Settings on AppNexus Web Interface


    1. If you have not done so already, follow instructions from AppNexus and add your app and ad units.
    2. Create a “Custom Mobile Network Bid” with the following information:
      • Device Class Name: AerServCustomEventBanner for banner and AerServCustomEventInterstitial for interstitial.
      • Network Id: This is equivalent to “placement” on the AerServ Ad network.
      • Network Parameter: AerServ ad parameters, in JSON format. This field will take any additional parameter for the AerServ SDK. Refer to Advance Topics - Server Parameters for more information.

 

Step 5: Configure Ad Settings on AppNexus Web Interface


Follow AppNexus instructions to request banner or interstitial, but using ad units that you created in Step 3 above. There are no different or special API calls to fetch AerMarket ads, as all mediation is done automatically for you by the adapters.

 

 

Advanced Topics


Server Parameters

AerServ server ad parameters must be in JSON format.  Currently we support these parameters:

NAME

TYPE

REQUIRED

DEFAULT

DESCRIPTION

timeoutMillis

Number

No

15000

Here is an sample value:

{ 
"timeoutMillis":10000
}

 

Event Mapping

AerServ banner events are mapped to AppNexus’s CustomEventBannerListener events, as follows:

adViewDidLoadAddidLoadBannerAd

adViewDidFailToLoadAddidFailToLoadAd

willPresentModalViewForAdwillPresentAd

willLeaveApplicatonFromAdwillLeaveApplication

adWasClickedadWasClicked

didDismissModalViewForAddidCloseAd

 

AerServ interstitial events are mapped to AppNexus’s CustomEventInterstitialListener events, as follows:

interstitialViewControllerDidPreloadAddidLoadInterstitialAd

interstitialViewControllerAdFailedToLoaddidFailToLoadAd

interstitialViewControllerDidDisappeardidCloseAd

interstitialViewControllerWillAppearwillPresentAd

interstitialViewControllerDidAppeardidPresentAd

Error Codes

AerServ adapter will fire the following AppNexus errors using their AdRequest error enum:

ADREQUEST ENUM

CONDITION

ANAdResponseInvalidRequest

  • Invalid server parameter JSON
  • Missing placement value
  • Context passed into adapter is not of type Activity

ANAdResponseUnableToFill

AerServ SDK fired AD_FAILED event.  See AerServ SDK documentation for more details.

  

 

Step 1: Download Android SDK and Required Adapter Files


Download latest AerServ Android SDK here. The downloaded ZIP file contains both the SDK library and adapter files.

 

Step 2: Configure Your Project


  1. Follow AppNexus's instructions on setting up their SDK for your project.
  2. Unzip AerServ SDK ZIP file, and copy aerserv-android-sdk/lib/aerserv-sdk.jar into your project's libs folder.
  3. Copy all Java files from aerserv-android-sdk/network-support/AppNexus into your project's source folder. These adapter files have com.aerserv.appnexus as package name. You can either put them in the corresponding destination folder, or you can change the package name at the top of each adapter file.
  4. You must initialize our SDK.  We recommend that you invoke this initialization routine at least 10 seconds before you intend to show your first ad (a good location would be your main activity's onCreate() method).

     

    • To initialize the SDK, invoke the following:
    AerServSdk.init(MainActivity.this, MY_APP_ID);
    • How to obtain the app ID:
      1. Log on to the AerServ platform.
      2. Go to the 'Inventory' tab in the top navigation bar.
      3. Click the 'Edit' icon next to the app whose ID you wish to obtain.
      4. You will find the app ID at the very top of the page.
      • Add the following permissions AndroidManifest.xml: 
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
      • Add the following activities AndroidManifest.xml:
        
        <activity
               android:name="com.aerserv.sdk.view.AerServFullScreenAdActivity"
               android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent"
               android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize" />
                
        <activity
               android:name="com.aerserv.sdk.view.ASVastInterstitialActivity"
               android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent"
               android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize" />
                
        <activity 
               android:name="com.aerserv.sdk.view.ASWebviewInterstitialActivity" 
               android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize" />
                
        <activity 
               android:name="com.aerserv.sdk.view.ASVpaidInterstitalActivity"
               android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenLayout|uiMode|screenSize|smallestScreenSize" 
               android:hardwareAccelerated="true" />

        1. Follow instruction to set up AerServ Placements and Ad Sources.
        2. For banner ads, please set refresh interval to Never. If you want banner refresh, enable it with AppNexus instead.

 

Step 4: Configure Ad Settings on AppNexus Web Interface


        1. If you have not done so already, follow instructions from AppNexus and add your app and ad units.
        2. Create a “Custom Mobile Network Bid” with the following information:
