Setting up a new SSP connection with API

Relevant Yield collects data from the API sources on a daily basis. Depending on where your geographical location, it will vary slightly during the day, but we aim to always have fresh data when you meet in for work.

This article is about API connection. You should always use the API if possible, but If for some reason the SSP doesn't provide API connection, you may consider the csv import option described in this article: Set up a new SSP connection through a scheduled daily CSV file 

How to setup a new SSP connection in Relevant Yield:

1. Create an API User

Your Relevant Digital Technical Account Manager will provide you with an email address that you should use to create a new API user in the SSP. Depending on the SSP, the API user may be different than a normal user.

The most important thing is that the user has access to API features of the SSP. This might require you to inform them about the frequency of the API calls, and the answer for this would be roughly 5 calls per day. Most SSPs/Adservers do not charge anything extra for the API access, so it is usually very easy to get this access.

2. Add a new SSP connection in Relevant Yield

To add a new SSP connection, go to Configuration -> Integrations and click "+ New SSP"

In the settings popup you need to specify a type (which SSP) and a name for the connection. You can also define how you want to manage the imported data. If you have any questions regarding the settings, please don't hesitate to contact our support. The settings may vary depending on the SSP.

You will add credentials (the newly created API user) in the bottom of the settings popup.

After your credentials are added, the system should populate with Data, either automatically, if you wait until the next day, or if you trigger a manual import.

Once you can see data coming in, you can always use the Admin - Missing SSP traffic, to see the name of the placements imported, and then go on to map the new SSP Ids, to the websites.
