CREATE 

Description
Use this API to create instances for mediated ad sources. This API allows you to create multiple instances with a single API call. Keep in mind that when creating instances via the API, you are limited to the number of instances the platform allows.

Use the “groups” parameter to determine each waterfall group to include/exclude instance. The “groups” ID value is reachable using the Mediation API.

Note:

  1. Instances created without a ‘status’ parameter set will be automatically set as ‘active’
  2. Instances created for apps that are not live at the store will be automatically set as ‘inactive’
  3. To create instances for mediated ad networks, refer to this article for naming convention.
  4. Application configuration must have the same value for instances with the same ad network

Create Instances

Description
Use this API to create instances for both ironSource network and mediated ad sources. This API allows you to create multiple instances with a single API call.

Notes:

  1. Instances created without a ‘status’ parameter set will be automatically set as ‘active’
  2. Instances created for apps that are not live at the store will be automatically set as ‘inactive’
  3. For Mediation users – each newly created instance will be included in all of the app’s mediation groups.
  4. Each app is limited up to 10 instances per ad unit. In order to extend this limitation Contact Us or reach out to your Account Manager.
  5. To create instances for mediated ad sources, please refer to this article for naming convention.
  6. To create bidder networks Contact Us or reach out to your Account Manager.

CPM pricing:

General –

  1. CPM Pricing allows you the control and flexibility to define expected CPM rates from ironSource’s network.  Read more here.
  2. CPM pricing is available for specific accounts only, to activate CPM pricing Contact Us or reach out to your Account Manager.
  3. For best practices on using instances with pricing go to our Best Practices article.

Notes –

  1. In order to set global pricing for an instance, populate the instance’s country field with asterisk character ‘*’.
  2. Instances created without pricing and countries without defined pricing will be set to use optimized pricing.
  3. Countries are defined based on 2 letter country code, as per ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2.
