Creating a datastream to collect data from Moat

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 Moat.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Moat

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

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

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

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to Moat, all the Advertisers 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 Moat, the same applies to the Advertisers 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 Advertisers. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
