InMobi Mediation Integration Guide

This guide will instruct you step-by-step on how to set InMobi live as an Ad Network on the ironSource Mediation platform.

Before You Start

Make sure you have correctly integrated ironSource‘s Rewarded VideoInterstitial or Banner ads into your application.

Step 1. Create an InMobi Account

  1. Create an account with InMobi. You can do so here.
  2. Once your account has been verified you can login at their partner login here.

Step 2. Create an Application and Placement in InMobi

To configure your application on InMobi, complete the following steps:

  1. Create an Application

    1. After you login you will immediately see the ‘Add an App’ option:
      ironsource-inmobi-guide-1
      You can enter the URL of your app in the AppStore or Google Play and select ‘Look Up‘.
    2. Alternatively, if your app is not live yet, select ‘Have an app that isn’t yet published?
      You can then manually enter your application’s name and select its platform.
      Check the box if your app is specifically directed to children under the age of 13 for specific filtering and targeting reasons.

    3. Once finished select ‘Add App‘.
      Note: You will need a unique InMobi application per platform (iOS + Android) just like you do with your ironSource account.
  2. Create a Placement

    Once you have created an application, you must create a Placement. Placements are locations to which InMobi will deliver specific Ad-types. This will be the placement in your app where you have configured the ironSource Rewarded Video or Interstitial to trigger.

    1. For Video Ads, select ‘Rewarded Video’, and then ‘Create Placement‘:
      ironsource-inmobi-rewarded-video-placement
      For Interstitial Ads, select ‘Interstitial’, and then ‘Create Placement‘:
      ironsource-inmobi-interstitial-placement
      New! For Banner ads, select ‘Banner’, and then ‘Create Placement‘:ironsource-inmobi-guide-3
    2. After you create the Placement you will see the details about this placement. Select ‘Proceed to Integration‘:
      Supersonic Mediation Inmobi Integration
  3. Finalize the App Setting

    The final section in the app setup is ‘Integrate and Test‘. ironSource provides an Adapter for the InMobi SDK with all the code pre-written, so there isn’t any integration work you need to do at this stage.
    Select ‘ironSource‘ as your mediation platform and  ‘None‘ as your development platform and proceed with ‘Done‘.

Step 3. Activate InMobi in Your ironSource Network Setup Module

There are 5 pieces of Data from the InMobi account which need to be input into your ironSource Network Setup Module in order for InMobi to work correctly in connection with ironSource:

Username This is the username you use to login to your InMobi account. This is required for ironSource to access the InMobi reporting API for your account, which allows your ironSource Mediation Platform to import performance data from your InMobi account to use in reporting & optimization.
Password  This is the password you use to login to your InMobi account. This is required along with the username in order for ironSource to access reporting information for your account.
API Key This is the unique key to verify requests made for reporting info.
Account ID This is the unique identifier for your InMobi account.
Placement ID This is the unique Placement to which InMobi will deliver ads to.

Once you obtain this information, you must configure InMobi’s Parameters in your ironSource Account. By adding the above parameters correctly, you will be able to take full advantage of InMobi’s ad inventory and reporting data on ironSource‘s Mediation platform.

  1. Username

    This is the username you use to log in to your InMobi account.

  2. Password

    This is the password you use to log in to your InMobi account.

  3. API Key

    This is the unique key to verify requests made for reporting info. To receive this info, email InMobi at ‘helpdesk@inmobi.com‘ and they will provide this parameter for your account.

  4. Account ID

    This is the unique identifier for your InMobi account. To locate this parameter, hover over the Drop-down arrow in the top right-hand corner of your admin panel. You will then see your ‘Account ID‘ listed:
    Supersonic Mediation Integration Inmobi ID

  5. Placement ID

    To find your applications ‘Placement ID‘, select ‘Monetize‘ from the top navigation header ➣ select the relevant app from your list ➣ select the name of the relevant placement for this app. A pop-up dialog will open the listing of ‘Placement ID‘:

    2. Add the InMobi frameworks to your Project:
      After you download the Adapter, drop the Adapter framework into your Xcode Project, i.e. drop ISInMobiAdapter.framework into your Xcode project.
    3. Add Required Frameworks:

        <key>NSAllowsArbitraryLoads</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>

Evaluate 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! Supported for SDK versions 6.5.2 and up.

Done!

You are now all set to deliver InMobi Ads through the ironSource Mediation platform!
