Adding Appnext Rewarded/Fullscreen to Mopub

Step 1: Login to your MoPub account and configure Appnext

As explained above, you must have an MoPub account, and an associated app within this account, in order to integrate Appnext

Step 2: Select your app and click to monetize it

  • Within your MoPub account, press the ‘Apps’ tab
  • For Rewarded videos - Appnext must be integrated as a Rewarded Video ad unit (fullscreen)
  • For Fullscreen videos - Appnext must be integrated as a custom event of a fullscreen ad unit (landscape / portrait).
  • After clicking on your app’s name, you will need to click the “Add an Ad Unit” button:

Rewarded Videos:

  • Define your Ad Unit, by selecting the following:
  • Device - select a device type (Phone / Tablet)
  • Format - select "Rewarded Video"
  • Name - enter a name for your ad unit
  • Frequency cap - optional, but not recommended

When you set the server-to-server callback URL in Mopub dashboard, the Mopub SDK will send the dashboard. If you set a rewarded postback within Appnext adapter, it will send the rewarded postback from Appnext in addition to Mopub we recommend using Mopub's settings only.
Click the “Save” button


Fullscreen Videos:

  • Define your Ad Unit, by selecting the following:
  • Device - select a device type (Phone / Tablet)
  • Format - select "Fullscreen"
  • Name - enter a name for your ad unit
  • Layout - choose “Portrait” or “Landscape” according to your app orientation
  • Frequency cap - optional, but not recommended

Click the “Save” button


Step 8: Configure Appnext as a network (if you haven’t done it in the past)
You will to configure Appnext as an ad network and associate it with your Ad Unit.

  • Click on the “Networks” tab
  • Click on the “New network” button:
  • Select “Custom SDK network”:
  • Set up the Custom SDK Network:
    Network name - enter a name for the new network: “Appnext”
  • Set Up Your Inventory as describe:

i. Scroll down to find your app


ii. Under your app, find your Rewarded Ad Unit
iii. Add the following class to the “CUSTOM EVENT CLASS” section [- 2nd cube in the line ]:

//For rewarded videos:
//For fullscreen videos:

iv. Add your app’s Placement ID (available on the Appnext platform) to the “CUSTOM EVENT CLASS DATA” section:


The data in this section should be in JSON format.

v. Configure Appnext’s Interstitial from the server (optional):

You can configure several elements in the Appnext unit, without editing your client-side integration, by passing their values in the “CUSTOM EVENT CLASS DATA” section [- 3nd cube in the line ] (see the optional parameter explanation at the end of the doc):





Configuring the Ad Unit on this section, will overwrite the default and custom ad unit configuration, set in the client-side integration step.

Step 9: Create / edit your App’s ad unit’s segment

In order for Appnext ads to appear in your ad unit, you must set a priority for Appnext ads, by creating a segment and configure Appnext’s eCPM accordingly.

  • Go to the “Segments” tab:
  • Go to “Global Segments”:
  • Click on your Ad Unit (under your app) and set the eCPM for the Appnext network.
  • Set the Frequency Caps:
    a. Hourly Impression Cap (optional)
    b. Daily Impression Cap (optional)
    c. Allocation Percentage (optional)

Click the “Save” button


Step 10: You’re all done!

Your MoPub SDK should start showing Appnext ads immediately.
If Appnext ads are not shown, check the eCPM allocation and make sure it’s high enough so it will give Appnext priority.


Important Note

  • Each placement has a Placement ID. If you integrate multiple placements, you will need to use a different Placement ID for each.

Customizing the ad unit - Fullscreen Video

The Appnext SDK provides an option to change the ad unit’s configuration. By default, the SDK configuration will be loaded from Appnext's server, but you can choose to change it directly by creating a config object and call any of the following setters before loading the ad by the MoPub loadAd interface.

FullscreenConfig config = new FullscreenConfig();

Map<String, Object> extras = new HashMap<>();
extras.put(AppnextMoPubCustomEvent.AppnextConfigurationExtraKey, config);

List of configuration options:

Roll screen caption time setRollCaptionTime

The number of seconds that the google play text caption is showing. The caption is shown to the user after clicking the Call-to-action button. The function (setRollCaptionTime) can accepts values from 1 to 20. The default value is 3 seconds. Entering -1 will make the caption visible until the video finish to play

Customizing the ad unit - Rewarded Video

  • Normal - without pre-roll video selection screen (default)

Rewarded Postback Parameters - Using Appnext Rewarded parameters in addition to Mopub server-side postback (Optional)

You can choose to Initialize MoPub with custom Rewarded Postback parameters, In addition to the settings in the Mopub ad unit setting. Doing so will fire a client-side postback as defined in Appnext dashboard. This postback will be sent to your server once a user finished watching a video (the time to reward him). It is highly recommended to use either Mopub settings or Appnext settings, but not both at the same time.
