OpenX Connector

Intro

OpenX is an open-source advertising platform which features an integrated banner management interface and tracking system for gathering statistics. Use Domo's OpenX connector to retrieve data about advertisers, agencies, banners, campaigns, publishers, and zones. To learn more about the OpenX API, visit their page (https://docs.openx.com/Content/developers/about_topics_dev.html).

You connect to your OpenX account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the OpenX connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your OpenX account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The hostname or IP address of your OpenX Ad server. The hostname must include the API package directory name. For example: http:///openx/www/api/v1/xmlrpc/

  • The username for your OpenX account. The user with this username must be an administrative user.

  • The password for your OpenX account.

Connecting to Your OpenX Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the OpenX Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your OpenX account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
