Creating a datastream to collect data from Kochava

The basics of creating a datastream to collect data from any data source are explained in our guide to Creating a datastream. This guide contains information about the specific steps to create a datastream to fetch data from Kochava.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Kochava

Before creating an authorization to give Adverity access to Kochava, perform the following actions:

  1. Create an API key as described in the Kochava documentation.

To set up a new authorization to fetch data from Kochava, follow these steps:

  1. In the Authorization step of the datastream wizard, click Access Kochava using your credentials.

  2. Click Next.

  1. In Secret, enter the API key you created.

  1. Click Authorize.

  1. If you choose Access using your credentials or Access using someone else's credentials, in Set up or edit Applications, you or the person granting access must choose one of the following options:

    • Choose Grant access to all Applications, including those created in the future to allow Adverity to access all existing Applications and all Applications created in the future.

    • Choose Select specific Applications to which you want to grant access to determine the specific Applications that you want Adverity to access. Adverity will not automatically have access to Applications created in the future. You will need to grant Adverity access to any Applications created in the future.

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to Kochava, all the Applications available to you using your credentials will be visible in the Authorizations page to all Adverity users with permission to edit this authorization.

    If someone else uses their credentials to grant Adverity access to Kochava, the same applies to the Applications available using their credentials.

    This is important to consider if you do not want all Adverity users with permission to edit the authorization to be able to see the details of the Applications. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
