Step 3. Activate MediaBrix on the ironSource SDK Network Module

There are a few pieces of data from your MediaBrix account which need to be inserted into your ironSource Network Setup Module in order for MediaBrix to work correctly in connection with ironSource:

Important! You must contact the MediaBrix team for the below account information.

Base URL https://mobile.mediabrix.com/v2/manifest
Reporting Property  This information will be provided to you in the MediaBrix on-boarding package.
Consumer Key  This information will be provided to you in the MediaBrix on-boarding package.
Consumer Secret  This information will be provided to you in the MediaBrix on-boarding package.
Access Token This is the unique identifier for token credentials in MediaBrix’ system. Contact the MediaBrix team for more details.
Access Token Secret  This information will be provided to you in the MediaBrix on-boarding package.

Zone ID  This is the unique Zone which MediaBrix will deliver ads to. This information will be provided to you in the MediaBrix on-boarding package.

 

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

Configure MediaBrix’s Parameters into ironSource Account

  • Once you have all of these parameters, log in to your ironSource account and go to ‘Monetize‘ ➣ ‘Mediation‘ ➣ ‘Network Setup‘.

Double check your integration and the information you entered above; then click ‘Retry‘ until you see ‘Verified’.

 

Step 4. Add the MediaBrix Adapter to Your Build

iOS

ironSource supports both Cocoapods and Manual download mechanisms.

Cocoapods

To integrate the MediaBrix SDK with Cocoapods, enter the following line in your podfile and you’re good to go!

pod 'IronSourceMediaBrixAdapter','4.0.2.1'

Manual Download

  1. Download the MediaBrix Adapter:
    Add the MediaBrix Adapter to your build. You can find the latest MediaBrix Adapter here.
    Important! The MediaBrix Adapter also contains the MediaBrix SDK. You DON’T need to add the MediaBrix SDK directly.
  2. Add the MediaBrix frameworks to your Project:
    After you download the Adapter, drop the Adapter framework into your Xcode Project, i.e. drop ISMediaBrixAdapter.framework into your Xcode project.
  3. Open Target ➣ Build Settings ➣ Architectures and confirm that your Xcode Project uses Base SDK version 6.0 or greater and that it does not use armv6 architecture.
  4. Remove the iOS Status Bar
    For optimal user experience, MediaBrix recommends removing the iOS Status bar when their ad unit is served to your users. To do this, open your Info.pList, add the key “View controller-based status bar appearance” and set it to “No“.

 

iOS 9.0+ Support
In order to serve ads for iOS 9.0+, MediaBrix requires ATS to be disabled. As exemplified in the below screenshot, simply add the below key and value in your project’s info.plist: ironsource-ats-disabled-for-mediabrixFind more info on ATS here.

 

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.

Important! While the above integration enables MediaBrix as an ad network on ironSource’s Mediation platform, you will not be live with MediaBrix’ video ads before the MediaBrix team approves the BTM placement. Additionally, you must also send a release candidate, videos or screenshots for your app catalog to the MediaBrix team to go live.

 

Done!
You are now all set to deliver MediaBrix Ads within your application!
