Content.ad via Actions

Integrates with:

Content.ad is a digital advertisement platform that helps brands and advertisers promote and engage their digital content across multiple channels. The Content.ad via Actions kit contains the necessary rivers and logic to pull data from two popular Content.ad reports, advertiser and advertiser click. This kit pulls in data for the advertiser report and the advertiser click report, and includes the logic to flatten nested fields.

This kit includes…

  • REST Action call to ping data from the advertiser endpoint.
  • REST Action call to ping data from the advertiser click report endpoint with the following properties: 
  • Data source to target rivers that orchestrate data ingestion from both endpoints.
  • Logic that creates a marketing data model for the advertiser report configured for daily updating.

You can find the full contents, data model documentation, and source fields used here.

Configuring this kit for use

1. Variables

In this kit, there are four variables that are used to make for dynamic use of target configuration and authentication credentials.

{DB_content_ad} is used in all Target configurations and queries as the target database name.

{schema_content_ad} is used in all Target configurations and queries as the target schema name.

For authentication, you must configure the global variables {content_ad_username} and {content_ad_password} with the content.ad username and password from your account.

If you desire to assign an email group for river failure notifications, you can add emails in a comma-delimited form, under the variable “{content_ad_alert_group}” in the “Variables” tab in the rivery console after importing this kit.

2. Connections

kits are imported with ‘blank’ source and target connections. In order to use the kit, you have two options:

  • Swap out blank Snowflake connections with existing connections
  • Add Snowflake credentials to the blank connections that come with the imported kit
