Step 4. Add the DT Exchange Adapter to Your Build

Integrate DT Exchange Adapter with Cocoapods

To integrate the DT Exchange SDK with Cocoapods, enter the following line in your podfile and you’re good to go!

 pod 'IronSourceFyberAdapter','4.3.34.4'

Download the DT Exchange Adapter Manually

  1. Download the DT Exchange Adapter and SDK:
    Add the DT Exchange Adapter and SDK to your build. You can find the latest DT Exchange files here.
  2. Add the DT Exchange frameworks to your Project:
    After you download and unzip the adapter and SDK, drop the framework files into your Xcode Project.
  3. Open Target ➣ Build Settings ➣ Architectures and confirm that your Xcode Project uses Base SDK version 7.0 or greater and that it does not use armv6 architecture.

Step 5. DT Exchange Additional Settings

User-level COPPA

Unity LevelPlay lets publishers communicate DT Exchange User-level COPPA settings directly to the DT Exchange network. This feature is enabled using ironSource SDK 7.3.0+, DT Exchange iOS Adapter 4.3.30+.

Use the following syntax, to update COPPA with the parameter “YES”:

 [IronSource setMetaDataWithKey:@"DT_COPPA" value:@"YES"];

Verify Your Ad-Network Integration

  • Verify your ad network integration with our Integration Helper. The ironSource SDK provides a tool to ensure you’ve successfully integrated our SDK as well as any additional network adapters.
  • Manage the debug logs for your integrated mediation ad networks with this boolean
    [IronSource setAdaptersDebug:YES];

    When set to YES, this line of code will enable debug logs to help you troubleshoot issues with all of your mediation ad networks. Remove this code before your app goes live with our ad units! 

Done!
You are now all set to deliver DT Exchange Ads within your application!
