Post Install Event Postbacks for Top Tracking Partners

AdColony is now capable of receiving postbacks for post-install events for optimization purposes. Below are postback set up instructions for some of our top integrated tracking partners:


Adjust

Each post-install action has a different endpoint in the Adjust system that matches what is set up during your SDK integration.

To set up a post-install event in the Adjust UI:

  1. Navigate to the Events screen of your dashboard.
  2. Create a new event that corresponds to the post-install event you would like to track:
    Click here to view all supported post-install events
  3. The event will generate a six-character token.
  4. Send your Adjust tracker URL and the list of event tokens to Adcolony, letting us know which token maps to which event.
  5. AdColony will use these tokens to generate the click-through URL for your post-install event.

Apsalar

Each post-install action has a different endpoint in the Apsalar system that matches what is set up at the time of SDK integration.

To set up a post-install event in the Apsalar UI:

  1. Navigate to the Attribution Tracking → Postback URLs tab.
  2. Click the “Create a New Postback” button.
  3. From the Postback Recipient dropdown box, select AdColony.
  4. From the Application dropdown box, select the app for which you’d like to send post-install data for.
  5. From the Event Type dropdown, select the button next to “Custom Event” and select the name of the SDK event you are tracking.
  6. For Postback Status, select the button next to ‘Active’, which will immediately begin sending data for the specified endpoint once it has been created.
  7. For Attribution Rules, choose to send all events from all sources for the selected event.

    Note: This will pass all post-install events to AdColony, however, Apsalar postbacks are set up to pass a flag (adc_conversion parameter) letting AdColony know which events are tied to an attributed install and which events to disregard. Receiving all event data allows us to blacklist and be more cost-efficient about ad serving and optimization.
  8. In the Preview section under “Event Name”, enter the exact name of the AdColony endpoint corresponding to the post-install event you would like to track.
    Click here to view all supported post-install events
  9. Click the Create Postback button in the bottom right to save your new postback, which will now be visible in the Postback URLs table on your Attribution Tracking page.
