        Gradle

        1. Make sure the following Maven URL exists in your build.gradle script of your app module.
          repositories {
              mavenCentral()
              maven {url "https://android-sdk.is.com/"}
          }
          1. Add the adapter’s Maven name to your build.gradle script of your app module.

            dependencies {
            implementation 'com.ironsource.adapters:yandexadapter:4.3.0'
            implementation 'com.yandex.android:mobileads:7.0.1'
            }
            

            Done!
