The best way to monitor performance for Signal Licensing is to set up daily automated reports in Google Ad Manager (GAM).
Smooth performance is our goal. To ensure we don’t hit any snags in the implementation of Signal Licensing, we ask that you set up daily automated reports in Google Ad Manager (GAM).
This is to create the key value report required to help the Sovrn team track performance. If you have not already created the key value “sovrn-reload=true” please click here.
The key value above can be used in any of your internal reporting purposes, and you are free to pull data with that key value at any time. This article defines the parameters to include in your daily report as required by Sovrn for tracking purposes.
We suggest you give us temporary admin access to GAM in order to pull the correct report, or you can set this up on your own with these simple steps:
- Within your GAM account, go to Reports > Queries > New Query.
- Name the report, e.g. “Sovrn Signal KV Report”
- Report Type: Historical
- Date Range: Month to date
5. Setup the filter: Key-values contains sovrn-reload
6. Dimensions to include:
- Time Unit = Date
- Inventory = Key-values
