  • Ensure you know the Advertiser ID on which you want to collect data and the Program IDs for which you want to filter when collecting data.

Creating a datastream to collect data from Webgains

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 Webgains.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Webgains

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

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

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

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