This tab is not applicable for Yahoo Gemini.

 Note

 Notes

  • When you enable attribution for the first time, it takes up to 4 hours to be reflected in the Yahoo Gemini UI.
  • Agencies are not able to run campaigns on Yahoo via AppsFlyer.

Permissions Tab

In this tab, you can select the permissions to grant Yahoo Gemini, whether the partner acts as an ad network, agency or even both. Note that even if attribution is disabled for Yahoo Gemini, the permissions tab is active and you can grant control to Yahoo Gemini.

Use these toggles to give the ad network permissions to handle its own configuration for your app:Ad Network Permissions

  • Allow to configure integration - permit the partner to setup the integration tab (except in-app event postbacks)
  • Allow to configure in-app event postbacks - permit the partner to setup in-app event postbacks mapping to itself on the integration tab
  • Allow access to your retention report - only to the partner's own retention data 
  • Allow access to your Protect360 dashboard - only to the partner's own Protect360 data, and providing the feature is enabled for the advertiser
