Set up ironSource

ironSource is a network and Adjust module partner. Our integration lets ironSource receive attribution and app event data through automated callbacks.

Use our basic setup instructions to turn on Adjust’s integration and send callbacks to ironSource. Then, use our advanced setup instructions to customize what information ironSource receives.

Basic setup

To turn on Adjust’s integration with ironSource, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ADD PARTNERS
  3. Select Add (+icon) next to ironSource
  4. Enter your ADVERTISER ID and PASSWORD (contact your ironSource representative for help finding these)
  5. Optional: see advanced setup to customize your callbacks
  6. Select Save

Well done! Basic setup is complete. Now you can create an Adjust tracker URL and submit it to ironSource to launch your campaign.

ironSource will receive callbacks for these activities:

  • install
  • rejected install
  • session
  • event

Advanced setup

Choose which data ironSource receives from Adjust by customizing your setup.

Only forward data attributed to ironSource

Adjust sends ironSource your installs and reattributions across all ad platforms.

To stop ironSource from receiving data attributed to other ad platforms, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ironSource
  3. Turn on Attributed Only

Now ironSource will only receive data attributed to their own platform.

 

Forward in-app revenue

Revenue forwarding lets ironSource receive revenue amounts along with your revenue event data.

To forward in-app revenue to ironSource, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ironSource
  3. Turn on In-App Revenue Forwarding

Now ironSource will receive the revenue amount for every tracked transaction.

 

Note: Link at least one revenue event to ironSource before turning on Revenue Forwarding

 

Forward sessions

Adjust does not automatically send session callbacks due to the high volume of sessions.

To forward in-app sessions to ironSource, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ironSource
  3. Turn on Session Forwarding

Now ironSource will receive your app’s session activity.

 

Forward custom data

Partner parameters (available in Adjust SDK version 4.0+) let Adjust collect custom data points from your app and send them to ironSource.

Note: Before adding new partner parameters to the Adjust SDK, make sure no pre-existing partner parameters already fit your requirements.

To forward partner parameters to ironSource, follow these steps.

  1. Set up partner parameters within the Adjust SDK (instructions for iOS and Android)
  2. In the Adjust dashboard, find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  3. Select Partner Setup > ironSource
  4. Turn on Parameter Forwarding
  5. Select Partner Parameter Mapping
  6. In the FROM APP field, enter the name of your Adjust parameter (as written into the Adjust SDK). In the TO PARTNER field, enter your corresponding ironSource name.
  7. Select Save

Now ironSource will receive custom event details for each of your linked events.

 

Note: If you set up partner parameters within the Adjust SDK without turning on Partner Parameter Mapping, Adjust forwards the parameters as named in the Adjust SDK.

 

Forward app events

Event linking lets ironSource receive app event data. You can link every app event in Adjust to a preset ironSource name or a custom event name.

To forward app events to ironSource, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup >ironSource > Event Linking
  3. Find the event you want to link and update the field with a ironSource event or your own custom name
  4. When you finish linking events, select OK
  5. Select Save

Now ironSource will receive app event data for each of your linked events.
