Download and Integrate
To download the Vungle adapters, navigate to the Mediation Integration Tool. You must also download the Vungle SDK:
Vungle adapters are released as an Android Archive (AAR) file starting from version 188.8.131.52. The AAR includes any required Manifest data for Vungle. As a result, you no longer need to update your
AndroidManifestmanually for any generic data, such as permissions and Activities. Any other app-level placement configuration required by Vungle must be manually entered into the
If you are building your apps from Unity, make sure to export the Android project and enable Hardware Acceleration at the Application level, or least at the Activity level, using
android:hardwareAccelerated="true". Vungle requires this flag to be set to ‘true’ to render medium rectangle ads inside
For the latest download and integration instructions, consult Vungle’s tutorials before you integrate the SDK and adapters.
Set Up Vungle on the MoPub Dashboard
Application ID and
Placement Reference ID are required.
- To find your
Application IDnavigate to the applications tab and copy it from the App ID column.
- TO find your
Placement Reference IDnavigate to the applications tab > click under the Placements column > copy your
Placement Reference ID. -
Placement IDs(pids) are deprecated starting with Vungle’s latest SDK release (Android and iOS), and are no longer required to initialize Vungle.
Network Reporting and Auto CPM
The following setup is required to take advantage of Auto CPM. To enable Vungle network reporting and Auto CPM:
In the Network settings page for Vungle:
enable reporting access
provide the Reporting API Key
To find the Reporting API Key, in the Vungle Publisher dashboard, in the upper right hand corner navigate to My Account and look for the Reporting API Key
Navigate to the Auto CPM preferences page and turn on Auto CPM.
Migrate Vungle from Custom Native Setup
Placement ID(if applicable) from the old custom native connection to the supported Vungle instance.
MoPub will initiate the following Vungle mediation adapter class names to render the ads:
If you are manually entering these class names, migrate to the new network setup and pause the Custom Native Network. If you are using your own mediation adapter class names, make sure that both the old custom native network and the new Vungle network UI are set up for backward compatibility.
Important: During migration, make sure that the custom native network and the Vungle network are not both live at the same time, because this may impact your revenue.
Test an Ad
We recommend that you test your Vungle integration using MoPub mediation test mode to verify that the adapter works as expected. Test mode must be set up on both the MoPub side and the Vungle side.
Set Up Test Mode on the MoPub Side
Refer to our Mediation Test Mode article for complete details on using this mode.
Set Up Test Mode on the Vungle Side
The Vungle UI supports a global test mode, which you can enable for each platform, and target to specific test devices. Refer to the Vungle instructions for enabling test mode.
Enter your test device details in the Vungle UI to ensure that test ads are delivered only to your test device. Refer to the Vungle instructions for setting up test devices
Early Initialization to Test Advanced Bidding
To test Advanced Bidding, Vungle requires that you initialize the network SDK early (before the MoPub SDK even), and that you initialize it manually, without waiting for the MoPub server to trigger Vungle to initialize. To do this, you must include the Vungle-specific
App ID key in your initialization code for both iOS and Android, as well as for Unity Prefabs.
If your Vungle test environment is under a different
App ID key, then you must update these test keys in your initialization code for iOS, Android, and Unity Prefabs before you test, so that Vungle initializes not only for your production account details, but for your testing account details as well. (This is not a concern if you use the same
App ID for your Vungle production and testing environments.)
