Fyber Mediation Integration Guide

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

Before you start
  • Make sure you have correctly integrated ironSource’s Rewarded Video, Interstitial or Banner into your application.
  • Fyber Supports Android Operating Systems Version 4.1 (API level 16) and up.

Step 1. Create an Fyber Account

  1. Create an account with Fyber. You can do so here.
  2. Once your account has been verified, you can log in to their partner login here.

Step 2. Create an Application and Ad Spot in Fyber

To gain access to Fyber’s inventory within ironSource’s Mediation platform, you must first add your app and set up Ad Spots in your Fyber account.

  1. Add Your App
    1. Log into your Fyber account, navigate to ‘Inventory’  ‘Manage Apps & Sites’. select ‘Add App Or Site’.
    2. Define the settings of your app.
  2.  Create an Ad Spot
    Once your application has been added, you can create an Ad Spot. In Fyber’s system Ad Spots defines the Placement & Ad Unit to which Fyber delivers ads.

      2. Banner:
        1. Keep ‘Request Intervals’ Disabled
    4. Save Ad Unit
    5. Continue twice

Step 3. Activate Fyber in the SDK Networks Setup Module

There are a few parameters from your Fyber account which need to be inserted into your SDK Network Setup Module on the ironSource platform in order for Fyber to work correctly in connection with ironSource:

Publisher ID, 

Consumer Key, 

Consumer Secret

This is a unique identifiers for your Fyber account, which allows the ironSource Mediation Platform to import performance data from your Fyber account to use in reporting & optimization.
App ID This is a unique identifier of your application in Fyber’s system.
Ad Spot ID This is the unique spot which Fyber will deliver ads to.

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

  1. Publisher ID,  Consumer Key,  Consumer Secret
    Navigate to the ‘User Profile‘ page and you will locate them on the bottom part of the page under ‘Reporting API Keys’
  2. App ID, Ad Spot ID
    Navigate to ‘Inventory’  ‘Manage Apps & Sites’ ➣ Select the relevant application from the list ➣ Select ‘Integration Options’ from menu on the right.

Configure Fyber’s Parameters into ironSource Account

  • Once you have all of these parameters, log in to your ironSource account and go to ‘Monetize‘ ➣ ‘Mediation‘ ➣ ‘SDK Networks‘.
  • Select Fyber from the list of Available Ad Networks and enter the Fyber ‘Publisher ID‘, ‘Consumer Key‘, ‘Consumer Secret‘. Click ‘Save‘.
  • Fyber will then be enabled in the Available Ad Networks table.
  • Make sure to define the app on which you’d like to run ironSource’s Mediation with Fyber. Go to the Fyber row on the Setup list of Ad Networks and click on the ‘Setup‘ button.
  • Insert the App ID‘ on the application level, and ‘Ad Spot ID‘  for the relevant Ad Units.
  • Click ‘Save’.
  • Activate requested Ad Units.
  • Verify your integration with the Reporting API; this column will check your integration through the Reporting API and return three possible responses: Verified, Failed and No Response. Double check your integration and the information you entered above; then click ‘Retry‘ until you see ‘Verified’.

Step 4. Add the Fyber Adapter to Your Build

 ironSource supports both Gradle dependencies and manual download mechanisms for the adapter, while Fyber’s SDK is available with manual download only.


    1. Make sure the following Maven URL exist in your build.gradle script of your app module.
repositories {
    maven {
        url "https://android-sdk.is.com/"
  1. Add the adapter’s Maven name to your build.gradle script of your app module.
    dependencies {
        implementation 'com.ironsource.adapters:fyberadapter:4.3.21'
        implementation "com.fyber:marketplace-sdk:8.1.5"


  1. Download the Fyber Adapter:
    Add the Fyber Adapter to your build. You can find the latest Fyber Adapter here.
  2. Add the Fyber Adapter to your Project:
    After you download the Adapter; drop the FyberAdapter jar into the libs folder in your Android Project.
  3. Make sure you add the following to your Gradle build file under the dependencies section:
    dependencies {
        implementation 'com.ironsource.adapters:fyberadapter:4.3.21'
        implementation "com.fyber:marketplace-sdk:8.1.5"

  4. Download the Fyber .AAR files
    1. If using Eclipse: Import the .AAR files as a library project.
    2. If using Android Studio, download the Fyber .AAR files and add as a dependencies to your own module. Go to File  New  New Module  Import .AAR and navigate to the location where the Fyber .AAR files has been downloaded.

Step 5. Network Security Settings

Fyber’s SDK requires clear text traffic permission to localhost, when targeting Android P and using video ads. This should be done by adding an exception rule to ‘localhost’, that can be found in your apps Network Security Configuration.

  • Define the Network Security Configuration xml:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <base-config cleartextTrafficPermitted="true">
                <certificates src="system" />
                <certificates src="user" />
                <certificates src="user" />
        <domain-config cleartextTrafficPermitted="true">
            <domain includeSubdomains="true"></domain>
  • Add the configuration to your application manifest:
    <? xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <manifest ... >
        <application android:networkSecurityConfig="@xml/network_security_config" 
                  ... >
