Collecting data from Quantcast

This guide explains how to collect data from Quantcast. To learn how to collect data from a different data source, go back to the Available data sources in Adverity overview.

  • Quantcast can collect a maximum of 1 million rows per single report. To fetch more data than this, split your fetch into smaller date ranges in the Initial Fetch step of creating a datastream.

Creating a datastream to collect data from Quantcast

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 Quantcast.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Quantcast

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

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

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

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