Test Your Integration
OpenMediation supports an advanced functionality that allows for ad content testing on specific devices to evaluate and check ad delivery without affecting your live app version or your earnings.
To use this functionality, follow these steps:
Step1. Navigate to SDK Integration
Step2. Select Add Test Device.
Step3. Enter the Device Name and Advertising ID
('Google Advertising ID' (GAID) for Android or 'Identifier for Advertisers' (IDFA) for iOS):
How Do I Find My GAID (Google Advertising ID)?
1. Launch the Settings app.
2. Find and click the 'Google' entry.
3. Find and click Ads.
4. Your GAID is shown on this page. It might be called 'Your advertising ID'or something similar.
How Do I Find My IDFA (Identifier For Advertising)?
IOS does not currently provide a way for you to see your device's IDFA (Identifier for Advertising). There are some free apps on the App Store that will display your IDFA. Here are a few we've used that appeared to give the right information at the time we tried them (note that we don't have a relationship with these companies and thus can't vouch that these apps aren't malicious, or that they will give the right information in the future):
• Device IDFA
• My Device ID by AppsFlyer – Whitelist Test Device
Once you’ve successfully added a test device, you will see it on the SDK Testing - Devices Module and across all your applications.
Once you’ve entered the device and selected the mediation ad source you’d like to test on your application, you will receive ads exclusively from that specific ad network on the assigned device. This allows you to check that ads are being served correctly on the end users’ application.
Please be noted that by default, the ad network configuration will reset within the hour. To avoid the effect of application caching, please restart your App before start ad testing.
Please be noted that configuration will be reset within 60 minutes and please restart your App before start ad testing. In this part, you can test ad delivery on specific devices without affecting your live app traffic.
The maximum effective time of Testing is 5-10 minutes, which may be under the influence of network caching. You can also control the sequence of the mediated network's ad delivery. Once you’ve successfully added a test device, you will see it on the Network and Mediation Testing Module and across all your applications!
