Step 2: Set up Pangle demand in Ad Manager UI

Sign in to your Ad Manager account.

Add Pangle in Companies

This step isn't required for bidding integrations.

Waterfall

Navigate to Admin > Companies, then click the New company button in the All companies tab. Select Ad network.

Select Pangle as the Ad network, enter a unique Name and enable Mediation.

You don't need to enter a Username or Password. Click Save when done.

Enable secure signal sharing

Bidding

Navigate to Admin > Global settings. Go to the Ad Exchange account settings tab and review and toggle on Secure signal sharing. Click Save.

Waterfall

This step isn't required for waterfall integrations.

Configure Pangle bidding

Bidding

Navigate to Delivery > Bidders, and click New bidder under the SDK Bidding tab.

Select Pangle as the bidder.

Toggle on Add this bidder's signal library to the list of allowed signals and Allow signals to be shared with this bidder. Then, click Continue.

Click Continue.

Click Done.

Waterfall

This step isn't required for waterfall integrations.

Configure ad unit mapping

Bidding

Navigate to Delivery > Bidders, and select the company for Pangle under the SDK Bidding tab.

Go to the Ad unit mapping tab and click New ad unit mapping.

Choose Specific ad unit. Select an ad unit and format, Mobile app as the Inventory type, and your Mobile application. Then, enter App ID and Ad Placement ID obtained in the previous section. Finally, click Save.

Enter the App ID and Ad Placement ID obtained in the previous section, and the Default CPM value. Click Save.

Step 3: Import the Pangle SDK and adapter

In your project-level settings.gradle.kts file, add the following repositories:

dependencyResolutionManagement {
  repositories {
    google()
    mavenCentral()
    maven {
      url = uri("https://artifact.bytedance.com/repository/pangle/")
    }
  }
}

Then, in your app-level build.gradle.kts file, add the following implementation dependencies and configurations. Use the latest versions of the Pangle SDK and adapter:

dependencies {
    implementation("com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:23.1.0")
    implementation("com.google.ads.mediation:pangle:6.0.0.5.0")
}

Manual integration

  1. Download the latest version of the Pangle SDK for Android and extract the open_ad_sdk.aar under from the downloaded archive folder and add it to your project.

  2. Navigate to the Pangle adapter artifacts on Google's Maven Repository. Select the latest version, download the Pangle adapter's .aar file, and add it to your project.

Step 4: Add required code

ProGuard obfuscation

If you use ProGuard to obfuscate Android code, follow the instructions in Pangle's documentation to ensure Pangle SDK code isn't obfuscated.

Step 5: Test your implementation

Enable test ads

Make sure you register your test device for Ad Manager and enable test mode in Pangle UI.

Verify test ads

To verify that you are receiving test ads from Pangle, enable single ad source testing in ad inspector using the Pangle (Bidding) and Pangle (Waterfall) ad source(s).

Optional Steps

Native ads

Ad rendering

The Pangle adapter returns its native ads as NativeAd objects. It populates the following fields for a NativeAd.

Field Assets always included by Pangle adapter
Headline
Image 1
Body
Icon
Call to action
Star rating
Store
Price
Advertiser

1 The Pangle adapter does not provide direct access to the main image asset for its native ads. Instead, the adapter populates the MediaView with a video or an image.

Error codes

If the adapter fails to receive an ad from Pangle, you can check the underlying error from the ad response using ResponseInfo.getAdapterResponse() under the following classes:

com.pangle.ads
com.google.ads.mediation.pangle.PangleMediationAdapter

Here are the codes and accompanying messages thrown by the Pangle adapter when an ad fails to load:

Error code Domain Reason
101 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle Invalid server parameters (e.g. Missing app ID or placement ID).
102 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle The requested ad size does not match a Pangle supported banner size.
103 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle Missing or invalid bid response.
-1-60000 com.pangle.ads Pangle SDK returned an error. See Pangle's documentation for more details.
