New features across Advertising Cloud

Last updated: October 27, 2021

Feature Description
Analytics for Advertising Cloud If your organization wants to switch from using the legacy Adobe Analytics visitorAPI.js library to the Adobe Experience Platform library (alloy.js) for data collection, you must make changes to enable ID stitching. See Using the Last Event Service JavaScript Library with Adobe Experience Platform Web SDK.

New features in Advertising Cloud DSP

Last updated: October 27, 2021

Feature Description
Custom Reports You can now create and manage Amazon S3 and different types of FTP delivery locations, called report destinations, for your custom reports. Once you configure report destinations, you can set up each of your new custom reports to be delivered to one or more locations of a single destination type, or to email recipients. Updates to your Amazon S3 and FTP credentials won’t interrupt report delivery.

Your existing reports are still sent to the specified email recipients. To configure delivery to a different report destination, create a report with the new destination.
Packages, Placements, and Ads views When you view data for a single day, the trend charts now include hourly data. Hold the cursor over any point to see the data for that hour.
Placements The placement Inspector now includes an Inventory tab, which shows all deals and their associated metrics for the placement. Use the information to make quick adjustments or troubleshoot issues without generating a custom report.
Ads (Users with permission to include Clearcastclock numbers in their ads) DSP no longer shows an error if you use a clock number that’s attached to another ad. Note: The best practice is to use a unique clock number for each video ad. Otherwise, the publisher does not approve all the ads.
Deal IDs The Deal ID settings and other places in the user interface reflect new branding for Magnite SSP:
  • The SSP Tremor (Telaria) is now Magnite CTV.
  • In the coming weeks, Rubicon will change to Magnite DV+, where DV+ stands for display, video, and other formats such as audio.
Freewheel programmatically guaranteed deals You can now find the status of ads for Freewheel programmatically guaranteed deals from the Ads view. Previously, you could check the status only from the Deals view.

Last updated: October 7, 2021

Feature Description
Reports, Notification Center (October 9 release) All email notifications for reports, which Advertising Cloud Search sends when a custom or scheduled report has completed or failed, are now handled by Notification Center. Email notifications and web notifications are enabled by default for reports, but you can optionally change the notification settings. With this change:
  • Email recipients are restricted to users who are registered, authenticated users of Advertising Cloud Search and have access to the advertiser account. This feature ensures that no confidential data is sent to unauthorized users.
  • The format and contents of the email uses the Notification Center template, which includes more details of the report and includes direct download links for all report formats.
  • Report notifications are a new notification type, with its own notification preferences, in Notification Center.
If you use any automation to pull reports from email notifications, you may need to update the filtering logic to ensure process continuity.
Advertising Insights Additional insights are available in beta mode.
