How to Integrate Supply Partners (SSPs)
1. Issuing an Endpoint
To add a new SSP, please follow the steps below:
a) go to RTB tab in your admin panel and click on "Add RTB" button
b) provide RTB name (for SSP endpoint) and Display name (what name you want the SSP to be displayed in the UI)
1 - Status: choose Active if you'd like the SSP to be able to send requests and be visible in the UI, Inactive - if you'd like to pause requests from the SSP or hide it in the UI
2 - RTB Name: name of the SSP the endpoint will be based on
3 - RTB Display Name: name of the SSP that will be displayed in the UI
4 - Test Mode: Phase I - allows to chek the ping and bid format, Phase II - is used for stats comparison, Production - is used after a test is over in order to add live demand to the ednpoint
5 - Supply Type: choose Display/ Video or Native based on the inventory type the SSP provides to you
6 - Endpoint: the URL the SSP should send requests to, e.g: http://rtbsupplier.rtb.adx1.com
7 - User Sync URL: the URL the SSP should implement on its side for cookie sync, e.g.: http://rtbsupplier.rtb.adx1.com/users/sync
c) click "Save"
2. Test Campaign Setup
After an endpoint is created, a test campaign should be mapped to it:
a) go to "Campaigns" tab and click "Add campaign"
b) set up a campaign to Phase II for a test with SSP. You can refer to the image below as an example:
c) click "Save campaign"
NB: this campaign in phase II can be used for integration with as many SSPs as you want. You can simply create a new ad group (strategy) for each new SSP under this campaign
d) create an ad group (strategy) for the SSP you are going to integrate, specifying it in "Supply sources" tab. You can also set the GEO, OS, browser, device, etc.
e) let the ad group work for a day/ few days and then compare the stats on both your and SSP side (impressions, ad spend). The stats in the UI is povided in UTC
