Getting started
This documentation will go through all the steps required to display Ogury ads on Android platform.
From October 2020, Ogury released a new API specially refactored to improve the onboarding experience. If you have already integrated the Ogury SDK and want to update your integration with the latest API, you can read the Migration guide. It explains the main points to easily switch from the old API to the new one.

Step 1: Register your application

The Asset Key follows the pattern: OGY-XXXXXXXXXXXX, where X is an uppercase letter or digit. In all the following code samples, we will refer to this Asset Key by using the string OGY-XXXXXXXXXXXX.

Step 2: Import the Ogury SDK

To import the latest version of the Ogury SDK into your project, Ogury provides two methods:
  • Automated integration using Ogury's Maven repository (recommended).
  • Manual integration of the Ogury SDK AAR.
Maven repository
Manual integration

Configure your IDE

Open the build.gradle of your application and add the following lines:
repositories {
maven {
url 'https://maven.ogury.co'
}
}
dependencies {
implementation 'co.ogury:ogury-sdk:5.+'
}

Download the Ogury SDK

Configure your IDE

Open the build.gradle of your application and add the following lines, making sure to replace ogury-sdk-X.X.X by the name of the downloaded AAR.
repositories {
flatDir {
dirs 'libs'
}
}
dependencies {
implementation(name: 'ogury-sdk-X.X.X', ext: 'aar')
}
To know more about the latest release of the Ogury SDK, you can check the release notes.

Step 3: Initialize the Ogury SDK

After you have registered your app and imported the Ogury SDK, you must call Ogury.start() before you use any Ogury's functionalities.
OguryConfiguration.Builder oguryConfigurationBuilder = new OguryConfiguration.Builder(this, "OGY-XXXXXXXXXXXX");
Ogury.start(oguryConfigurationBuilder.build());
The start method takes an OguryConfiguration object as parameters. The OguryConfiguration is built from its Builder which takes the following parameters:
  • the Application context.
  • the Asset Key of your application. If you do not have one yet, you can refer to the first step to create it.
The paragraph below is addressed to mediation SDK partners. If you are a publisher, you can directly go to step 4.
As a mediation SDK partner, please make sure add an extra line of code in your adapter in order to pass Ogury the name & the version of your SDK. Here is how it would look like:
Configuration.Builder oguryConfigurationBuilder = new OguryConfiguration.Builder(this, "OGY-XXXXXXXXXXXX");
oguryConfigurationBuilder.putMonitoringInfo("xxxxx_mediation_version", getMediationVersion());
Ogury.start(oguryConfigurationBuilder.build());
The putMonitoringInfo method takes a key-value parameters:
  • the key is "xxxxx_mediation_version" with xxxxx being the name of the mediation (in lower snack case) , e.g. Google AdMob will use the key "google_admob_mediation_version".
  • the value is the version of the mediation SDK, e.g. "8.13.0".

Step 4: Collect the user consent

The European GDPR regulation requires obtaining the users' consent in order to display them personalized ads, (i) when the company processing personal data is based in the EU, or (ii) when the users are EU citizens.
As a company based in the EU, Ogury accordingly requires an explicit consent from the users to collect their personal data and display them personalized ads. The consent collection can be operated:
Note that the Ogury SDK meets privacy requirements by design. Shall it not receive a valid consent status from the Ogury Choice Manager or from a third-party consent solution, it will display an End User License Agreement (EULA) before serving the first ad. Another way to put it: no targeted ad will be displayed to the users if they didn't give their consent first.

Step 5: Apply children's privacy treatment

This section is specifically for apps that are declared as mixed audience apps in the Ogury dashboard. Note that the children's privacy treatment is always applied on family audiences apps and does not apply on mature audiences apps.
The Ogury SDK provides a method to indicate that the current user is a child and therefore the US Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) should be applied.
Ogury.applyChildPrivacy(OguryChildPrivacyTreatment.UNSPECIFIED);
The applyChildPrivacy method can be called at any time. It takes effect from the next Ogury ad requests and until the user closes the app. It takes one of the integers of the OguryChildPrivacyTreatment class as parameters:
  • UNSPECIFIED: Default value. It was not specified that the the current user should receive treatment for users under COPPA or under the age of GDPR consent.
  • CHILD_UNDER_COPPA_TREATMENT_FALSE: Specifies that the current user should not receive treatment for users under COPPA and the GDPR laws is not applicable (users out the European Economic Area).
  • CHILD_UNDER_COPPA_TREATMENT_TRUE: Specifies that the current user should receive treatment for users under COPPA.
  • UNDER_AGE_OF GDPR_CONSENT_TREATMENT_FALSE: Specifies that the user should not receive treatment for users under the age of GDPR consent and the COPPA is not applicable.
  • UNDER_AGE_OF GDPR_CONSENT_TREATMENT_TRUE: Specifies that the user should receive treatment for users under the age of GDPR consent.
Additionally, the Ogury SDK provide a method to apply an ad content filtering on the Ogury ad requests:
OguryAdRequests.setAdContentThreshold(OguryAdRequests.AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_G);
The setAdContentThreshold method can be called at any time. It takes effect on all Ogury formats, from the next ad requests and until the user closes the app. It takes one of the string of the OguryAdRequests class as parameters:
  • AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_UNSPECIFIED: No content threshold to apply.
  • AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_G: Requires content suitable for general audiences, including families.
  • AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_PG: Requires content suitable for most audiences with parental guidance.
  • AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_T: Requires content suitable for teen and older audiences.
  • AD_CONTENT_THRESHOLD_MA: Requires content suitable only for mature audiences.

Step 6: Integrate Ogury ad formats

Ogury provides four different ad formats, (i) Interstitial Ads, (ii) Opt-in Video Ads, (iii) Banner Ads, and (iv) Thumbnail Ads. You can refer to the following sections to proceed with the integration:

Before going live

Ogury is part of the IAB Authorized Sellers for Apps initiative to fight inventory fraud for applications. It is recommended to update your app-ads.txt to include Ogury as described in the app-ads.txt section.
