Open Bidding report FAQ (Beta)

This feature is currently in beta release to a limited group of publishers.

Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Open Bidding report. 

When ad source is selected as a dimension, how do Requests in the Mediation network report compare to Eligible requests and Bid requests in the Open Bidding report?

Requests in the Mediation report are the number of requests your app has made to each ad network.

Eligible requests in the Open Bidding report are the number of requests that are eligible for Open Bidding. To be eligible for Open Bidding, the ad request must be sent to a mediation group that includes Open Bidding ad sources, and those ad sources must be able to participate in the auction for the ad unit. 

Bid requests in the Open Bidding report are the number of requests made to an Open Bidding ad source. 

What can cause a decrease in Eligible requests?

Check that your Open Bidding ad sources are added to the right mediation groups. If you haven’t added Open Bidding ad sources to your relevant mediation groups, the ad sources will receive limited ad requests. 

What can cause a decrease in Bid requests?

Ensure that SDK or adapter has been integrated correctly. Incorrect implementation could lead to bid requests not being sent.

What can cause a decrease in Bids in auction?

A decrease in Bids in auction could mean that the bid didn’t meet the criteria of the auction, such as minimum eCPM or ad format types. Confirm that your Open Bidding ad sources support the ad formats targeted in your mediation groups.

What can cause a decrease in Matched requests?

Ensure that you are setting your floors appropriately. A floor that is too high could result in fewer requests being matched.
