Providing Permissions to Ad Networks

  • Advertisers
  • Agencies

Introduction

AppsFlyer provides you with the ability to grant permissions to specific ad networks to perform a number of tasks including accessing reports and configuring attribution links. These are found in the Permissions tab.

Use the Permissions tab of the Integrated Partners configuration window for granting the different permissions to the ad networks.

You can grant permission for the ad network to view the following:

  • Integration Parameter Configurations
  • In-App Event Configuration
  • Retention Reports
  • Protect360 Dashboard

Configuring Integrated Partner Permissions

You can grant permission for the ad network to configure the attribution link for you and map your in-app events so that they can receive the data.

 Important!

For an ad network to see your app in their dashboard and be able to view data related to the app, you must enable Ad Network Permissions. Additional permissions can be granted. These permissions are discussed below.
