Create and manage clients and client users

Clients such as agencies and advertisers can be associated with your Authorized Buyers account and assigned permissions, which control how they appear to publishers in the marketplace. Client users can be given restricted access to your Authorized Buyers account based on the permissions you set. Only account users with the "Administrator" role can add clients and client users.

All client users can view available products and publisher profiles in the marketplace and have limited access to debugging and reporting tools.

To create a client:

  1. From your Authorized Buyers account, navigate to Admin > Clients in the left menu.
  2. Click the New client button.
  3. Specify the following:
    • Primary name
    • (Optional) Partner client ID
    • Permissions
    • Client users
  4. When you are done, click Save and add users.

(Optional) To invite users:

  •  
  1. Either continue from the steps above or click Manage users from the Client management page.
  2. Enter the email address of the new user.
  3. (Optional) Click Add email to add additional users for this client.
  4. Click Save.

Once the new client user information is saved, an invitation will be emailed to the address entered. The user will be prompted, via the invite, to accept, create a password, and agree to the terms of service and privacy policy.

New client users accounts are pending until the user clicks to accept the email invitation, enters the requested credentials, and accepts the terms of service and privacy policy.
