Target video content metadata

This is the new version of content ingestion and metadata management for Video Solutions.
With this version, you can target and filter based on your metadata after ingestion, without having to manually map and activate the data. Line items targeting one or more CMS metadata sources take up to 24 hours to start delivering impressions.

You can view the migration guide, or contact your account manager for information.

You can no longer map key-values to content metadata.

The targeting picker doesn't allow you to save content key-values (mapped metadata) from the "Custom targeting" type menu (since March 1, 2022).

Publishers that need to work around this can either:

You can target video content based on ingested metadata immediately after ingestion. This type of targeting is available for line items, ad rules, and protections.

Metadata targeting for ad rules and protections is performed using the "CMS metadata" dimension in the targeting picker.
