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 Smartnews Ads.

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 Smartnews Ads, follow these steps.

  2. In the Adjust dashboard, find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  3. Select Partner Setup > Smartnews Ads

Now Smartnews Ads 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.
