AdServer Gateway

Breaking Change: The digital media landscape offers a vast variety of systems and services. From AdServers to SSPs, DSPs or Data Management Platforms. ADvendio always tries to stay on top with its integration.

To represent this, but also to ensure a more consistent experience for your users, we will rename certain objects, fields and features which are related to our Integrations. Moving away from AdServer to more general terms.

Security

Security has always been a number one topic for us. In order to improve the protection of your data and also meet the high standards of the Salesforce Platform, we’re introducing several improvements including:

  • Confirmation modals - users will need to confirm certain actions where records will be created/altered and saved to the database. These confirmation modals have been added at the following points

    • Preinvoices creation on Media Campaign level

    • Update Delivered Quantity on Invoice

    • Invoice Item cancellation

    • Legal Entity Number generation

    • Create/update Position Numbers

    • Send an email with PDF as attachment

    • Create visit report from existing event

    • Update AdScript status

    • Set sharing settings for Media Campaigns

    • Send Approval Email to contact with script PDF or Ad Attachment

  • license checks - users will need to confirm that a license check can take place. Every 7 days a license check is carried out to ensure the customer has the license for the feature they are trying to use. This model shows at the following points

    • using any feature that requires a license check where it has been more than 7 days since the last check

  • Login credentials and access tokens will now be stored encrypted within ADvendio. This way you won’t need to store your passwords as plain text in ADvendio, making them potentially be accessible to all your Salesforce Users.

  • Delivery Reports and Programmatic Imports don’t require the entering of Salesforce user credentials anymore. This way you won’t have to store your Admins Salesforce login within an ADvendio feature anymore, preventing all other users from having access to this information.

Additionally, automated Subscriptions renewal is now in place. Contracts can be created with a cancellation period and/or whether or not they are valid for renewal. Automated processes run to seamlessly renewal and roll your subscriptions without the need for any manual intervention.
