Adform

Adform is a global digital media advertising technology company specializing in real-time programmatic marketing automation technologies. Using this destination you can implement server-side tracking.

Key features

The Adform destination provides the following key features:
  • Events structure: our Events reference covers Adform server-side tracking, meaning that your data is properly bridged to the expected fields in an optimized way.
  • Prebuilt mappings: data mapping for event-based destinations happens automatically, which simplifies user inputs.
  • Smart mapping: data mapping can be readjusted using your datalayer defined fields.
  • Support for multi-item data: information included in the item array is bridged to Partnerize.

Destination setup

A client-side tag template named "Adform - Get 3rd Party Cookie ID" is available in our library to help you retrieve the Adform Third-Party Identifier. Use Destination filters to refine events and/or other properties matching your specific needs.

Custom Event Properties
Map your custom event properties by setting their field names in Adform property name and adding the field name holding the value in Your event property. E.g. if you inputsizein the Partnerize property name and items.0.product.size in Your event property, you'll have a custom event property in Adform calledsizewith a value based on the content of the field items.0.product.size [2].
In the column Your event property path you should keep the default value Default (root) as it fits most scenarios. In case you select either In "items" {items.X} or In "product" {items.X.product} this destination will look for the input event property starting from the items or product level respectively and add its value as a custom entry in the "subVariables" array. The advanced operation As Adform subVariables Data can be paired with the property path option Default (root) so your property value is set as a custom entry in the "subVariables" array for each item. More details on Adform custom variables are available following this LINK (section: "Add Custom Variables").
[1] This feature allows you to set an event property holding a dynamic value by adding two open braces ({{) in front of your property name and two close braces (}}) at the end (E.g. {{myEventPropertyPathAndName}}). [2] Using "dots" (".") you can navigate deeper to the specific field you want to get the value of. See Events reference for more details on the standard field names by event. You can also freely set custom fields: there are no boundaries.
