  • 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(true);

    When set to TRUE, 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!
