Registration

The Outbrain Adapter requires setup before beginning. Please contact us at prebid.org@outbrain.com.

Configuration

Prebid.js

The Outbrain adapter does not work without setting the correct bidder and usersync URLs. You will receive the URLs when contacting us.

pbjs.setConfig({
    outbrain: {
      bidderUrl: 'http://bidder-url.com',
      usersyncUrl: 'http://usersync-url.com'
    }
});

Prebid server

Similar to the Prebid.js configuration described above, our prebid server adapter requires you to configure the bidder and usersync URLs. You will receive the URLs when contacting us.

Please note that you need to replace the <PREBID_SERVER_EXTERNAL_URL> part with the actual external URL of the prebid server host.

First Party Data

Publishers can use the ortb2 configuration parameter to provide First Party Data.

OpenRTB Parameters

The following table contains currently supported parameters.

Name Scope Description Example Type
bcat optional Blocked advertiser categories using the IAB content categories ['IAB1-1'] string array
badv optional Block list of advertisers by their domains ['example.com'] string array
wlang optional Allow list of languages for creatives using ISO-639-1-alpha-2. Omission implies no specific restrictions. ['en', 'de'] string array

Example configuration:

pbjs.setConfig({
    ortb2: {
      bcat: ['IAB1-1'],
      badv: ['example.com'],
      wlang: ['en', 'de']
    }
});

Bid Params

Name Scope Description Example Type
publisher.id required The publisher account ID '2706' string
publisher.name optional The publisher name 'Publisher Name' string
publisher.domain optional The publisher domain 'publisher.com' string
tagid optional Identifier for specific ad placement or ad tag 'tag-id' string
bcat optional (Deprecated) ['IAB1-1'] string array
badv optional (Deprecated) ['example.com'] string array

Note: Providing bcat and badv via Bid Params is deprecated, the First Party Data method should be preferred (see above). When both methods are provided, first party data values will be used and bid param values will be ignored.
