It covers how to add Mintegral to an ad unit's mediation configuration, and how to integrate the Mintegral SDK and adapter into an Android app.

Supported integrations and ad formats

The Ad Manager mediation adapter for Mintegral has the following capabilities:

Integration
Bidding  1
Waterfall  2
Formats

Locate your Mintegral Reporting API Key

Bidding

This step isn't required for bidding integrations.

Waterfall

You will need your Mintegral Reporting API Key for setting up your Ad Manager ad unit ID. Navigate to Account > API Tools. Take note of your Skey and Secret.

Step 2: Set up Mintegral demand in Ad Manager UI

Sign in to your Ad Manager account.

Add Mintegral in Companies

Bidding

This step isn't required for bidding integrations.

Waterfall

Navigate to Admin > Companies, then click the New company button in the All companies tab. Select Ad network.

Select Mintegral as the Ad network, enter a unique Name and enable Mediation.

You don't need to enter a Username or Password. Click Save when done.

Enable secure signal sharing

Bidding

Navigate to Admin > Global settings. Go to the Ad Exchange account settings tab and review and toggle on Secure signal sharing. Click Save.

Waterfall

This step isn't required for waterfall integrations.

Configure Mintegral bidding

Bidding

Navigate to Delivery > Bidders, and click New bidder under the SDK Bidding tab.

Select Mintegral as the bidder.

Toggle on Add this bidder's signal library to the list of allowed signals and Allow signals to be shared with this bidder. Then, click Continue.

Click Continue.

Click Done.

Waterfall

This step isn't required for waterfall integrations.

Configure ad unit mapping

Bidding

Navigate to Delivery > Bidders, and select the company for Mintegral under the SDK Bidding tab.

Go to the Ad unit mapping tab and click New ad unit mapping.

Choose Specific ad unit. Select an ad unit and format, Mobile app as the Inventory type, and your Mobile application. Then, enter App Key, App ID, Placement ID, and Ad Unit ID obtained in the previous section. Finally, click Save.

Waterfall

Navigate to Delivery > Yield groups and click the New yield group button. Select your Mobile application.

Scroll down and click Add yield partner.

Select the company you created for Mintegral in the previous section. Choose Mobile SDK mediation as the Integration type, Android as the Platform, and Active as the Status.

Enter the App Key, App ID, Placement ID, and Ad Unit ID obtained in the previous section, and the Default CPM value. Click Save.

Add Mintegral to GDPR and US state regulations ad partners list

Follow the steps in GDPR settings and US state regulations settings to add Mintegral to the GDPR and US state regulations ad partners list in the Ad Manager UI.

Step 3: Import the Mintegral SDK and adapter

In your project-level settings.gradle.kts file, add the following repositories:

dependencyResolutionManagement {
  repositories {
    google()
    mavenCentral()
    maven {
      url = uri("https://dl-maven-android.mintegral.com/repository/mbridge_android_sdk_oversea")
    }
  }
}

Then, in your app-level build.gradle.kts file, add the following implementation dependencies and configurations. Use the latest versions of the Mintegral SDK and adapter:

dependencies {
    implementation("com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:23.1.0")
    implementation("com.google.ads.mediation:mintegral:16.7.61.0")
}

Manual integration

  1. To include the Mintegral SDK, go to Mintegral SDK for Android.

  2. Navigate to the Mintegral adapter artifacts on Google's Maven Repository. Select the latest version, download the Mintegral adapter's .aar file, and add it to your project.

Step 4: Implement privacy settings on Mintegral SDK

Under the Google EU User Consent Policy, you must ensure that certain disclosures are given to, and consents obtained from, users in the European Economic Area (EEA) regarding the use of device identifiers and personal data. This policy reflects the requirements of the EU ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When seeking consent, you must identify each ad network in your mediation chain that may collect, receive, or use personal data and provide information about each network's use. Google currently is unable to pass the user's consent choice to such networks automatically.

The Mintegral SDK includes the setConsentStatus method to pass consent information to the Mintegral SDK.

The following sample code shows how to pass consent information to the Mintegral SDK. These options must be set before you initialize the Google Mobile Ads SDK to ensure they get forwarded properly to the Mintegral SDK.

Java

import com.mbridge.msdk.out.MBridgeSDKFactory
// ...

MBridgeSDK sdk = MBridgeSDKFactory.getMBridgeSDK();
sdk.setConsentStatus(context, MBridgeConstans.IS_SWITCH_ON);

Kotlin

import com.mbridge.msdk.out.MBridgeSDKFactory
// ...

var sdk = MBridgeSDKFactory.getMBridgeSDK()
sdk.setConsentStatus(context, MBridgeConstans.IS_SWITCH_ON)

See Mintegral's privacy documentation for more information.

US states privacy laws

U.S. states privacy laws require giving users the right to opt out of the "sale" of their "personal information" (as the law defines those terms), with the opt-out offered via a prominent "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" link on the "selling" party's homepage. The U.S. states privacy laws compliance guide offers the ability to enable restricted data processing for Google ad serving, but Google is unable to apply this setting to each ad network in your mediation chain. Therefore, you must identify each ad network in your mediation chain that may participate in the sale of personal information and follow guidance from each of those networks to ensure compliance.

The Mintegral SDK includes setDoNotTrackStatus method to pass consent information to the Mintegral SDK.

The following sample code shows how to pass consent information to the Mintegral SDK. If you need to call this method, call it after initializing the Google Mobile Ads SDK but before requesting ads through the Google Mobile Ads SDK.

Java

import com.mbridge.msdk.out.MBridgeSDKFactory
// ...

MBridgeSDK mBridgeSDK = MBridgeSDKFactory.getMBridgeSDK();
mBridgeSDK.setDoNotTrackStatus(false);

Kotlin

import com.mbridge.msdk.out.MBridgeSDKFactory
// ...

var mBridgeSDK = MBridgeSDKFactory.getMBridgeSDK()
mBridgeSDK.setDoNotTrackStatus(false)

See Mintegral's privacy documentation for more information.

Step 5: Add required code

No additional code is required for Mintegral integration.

Step 6: Test your implementation

Enable test ads

Make sure you register your test device for Ad Manager.

To get Mintegral test ads for banners, interstitials, rewarded and native ad formats, Mintegral recommends using the App Keys, App IDs, Placement IDs and Ad Unit IDs provided in the Mintegral Test ID page.

Verify test ads

To verify that you are receiving test ads from Mintegral, enable single ad source testing in ad inspector using the Mintegral (Bidding) and Mintegral (Waterfall) ad source(s).

Optional steps

Add Mintegral to CCPA ad partners list

Follow the steps in CCPA settings to add Mintegral to the CCPA ad partners list in the Ad Manager UI.

Native ads

Ad rendering

The Mintegral adapter returns its native ads as NativeAd objects. It populates the following fields for a NativeAd.

Field Assets always included by Mintegral adapter
Headline
Image 1
Body
Icon
Call to action
Star rating
Store
Price
Advertiser

1 The Mintegral adapter does not provide direct access to the main image asset for its native ads. Instead, the adapter populates the MediaView with a video or an image.

Error codes

If the adapter fails to receive an ad from Mintegral, you can check the underlying error from the ad response using ResponseInfo.getAdapterResponse() under the following classes:

com.mbridge.msdk
com.google.ads.mediation.mintegral.MintegralMediationAdapter

Here are the codes and accompanying messages thrown by the Mintegral adapter when an ad fails to load:

Error code Domain Reason
101 com.google.ads.mediation.mintegral Invalid server parameters (e.g. Missing app ID or placement ID).
102 com.google.ads.mediation.mintegral The requested ad size does not match a Mintegral supported banner size.
103 com.google.ads.mediation.mintegral Missing or invalid bid response.
104 com.google.ads.mediation.mintegral Mintegral SDK returned a no fill error.
