Set up AmberAds

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

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

Basic setup

To turn on Adjust’s integration with AmberAds, 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 AmberAds
  4. Turn on Enabled
  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 AmberAds to launch your campaign.

AmberAds will receive callbacks for these activities:

  • click
  • event
  • install
  • reattribution
  • session

Advanced setup

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

Forward clicks

Adjust does not automatically send click callbacks due to the high volume of clicks.

To forward click data to AmberAds, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > AmberAds
  3. Turn on Send Clicks

Now AmberAds will receive all of your app’s click data.

 

Forward in-app revenue

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

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

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

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

 

Note: Link at least one revenue event to AmberAds 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 AmberAds, follow these steps.

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

Now AmberAds 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 AmberAds.

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 AmberAds, 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 > AmberAds
  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 AmberAds name.
  7. Select Save

Now AmberAds 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 AmberAds receive app event data. You can link every app event in Adjust to a preset AmberAds name or a custom event name.

To forward app events to AmberAds, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup >AmberAds > Event Linking
  3. Find the event you want to link and update the field with a AmberAds event or your own custom name
