Deprecation Schedule

 The media landscape is highly dynamic and so is our product. To support you in keeping an overview and ensure a good performance, we remove features not in use anymore, from our Managed Package. This is the schedule of the features we're planning to deprecate or replace. If you are affected, please see the attached links for further steps. Also if you have further questions feel free to contact your Technical Account Manager or support@advendio.com

Deprecation planned

low

With the ADvendio releases of 2023, legacy geo targeting features will not work anymore and will be deprecated.

As most customers are already using our enhanced targeting features, they will not be affected by this change. If you are still using any of the mentioned objects for setting up geo targeting for your AdServer, please check the following instructions:

Deprecation Done

July 2021

Submit to AdServer;

Transfer to ADvendio

Media Campaign Field:

  • Booking in processing

Connection Field:

  • Transfer in progress

AD-6439

Deprecation in progress

very low

These fields were used to prevent the same features to run at the same time for the same external system and thus causing problems. We don't need the Salesforce fields anymore for the validation, thus they are marked for deletion in May.

2.141

Commitments

Media Campaign Field:

Campaign Item Field:



AD-5921

Deprecation in progress

medium

The fields are not working anymore for new data, but existing data is still saved in there and will continue to work. Find out more: 4.16.10 Breaking Change: Change in Commitment Data structure and deprecation of old fields in version 2.141

2.139

Campaign Item

Campaign Item field:

  • Proposal ID

Campaign Item field:

  • Proposal Line Item Id

AD-6019

Deprecation Done

very low

These fields are not referenced in the code anymore and therefore have no logic behind them.

To avoid confusion, for our Programmatic Guaranteed feature, we're using the fields AdServer Proposal ID and AdServer Proposal Line item ID, they won't be affected by the changes.

There are no further steps needed. Once the fields are deleted from the ADvendio Package, you can proceed to remove them.

2.137

Google AdManager, Delivery Data

Detailed viewed impression metrics on Campaign Item, with the following fields:

  • AvAsEligibleAi

  • AvAsMeasurableAi

  • AvAsMeasurableAiRate

  • AvTotalEligibleAi

  • AvTotalMeasurableAi

  • AVTotalMeasurableAiRate

  • AvTotalViewableAi

  • AvTotalViewableAiRate

AD-6048

Deprecation in progress

medium

With version 2.137, we will remove those detailed metrics from the lifetime delivery import, in order to focus on the key metrics.

This will not impact the actual viewed impressions we import and use for billing vCPM items. Those will still be imported to Campaign Items.

There will be no direct workaround, but you can use our new custom metrics feature to import the values into your own fields. Find out more: 7.3.18 How to import custom delivery data metrics from our connected systems into ADvendio?

As we develop a Managed Package in Salesforce, once we remove certain objects, they are not automatically removed in customer orgs. Meaning especially unused fields and object, need to be also manually deleted from your System Administrator, once we removed them from the Package. See the following page for more information: What does the label "deprecated" mean?
