Resources available for our IX Library partners

Our IX Library™ partners have access to the IX Library Ecosystem, which is a collection of tools, documentation, and self-help guides that help partners to quickly and easily integrate with us. Everyone who supports the IX Library gains access to an ecosystem of resources.

See the table below to learn more about the IX Library Ecosystem, and the tools available to you as a publisher or certified adapter.

Resource Description


The owner of a website who uses the IX Library.

Certified Adapters

A partner who has completed the adapter certification process. Certified adapters fall into two categories:

  • Bidders: an ad exchange or demand partner that contributes bids
  • Non-bidders: a partner that contributes another resource, such as targeting, analytics, addressability, and more. These resources help bidders make informed decisions on the value of each impression
Published Source Code

The IX Library is a JavaScript framework and has always been viewable by any interested party, but is now published on GitHub. The IX Library source code is maintained by Index and will be published on a quarterly basis to GitHub.

Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct outlines our established rules and commitments for IX Library behavior and adapter participation.


We provide publishers and certified adapters with reporting tools that you can use to gather performance data and make informed decisions about monetizing your inventory.

Integration Agreement

Each certified adapter signs an integration agreement. This agreement outlines the expectations between us and our partners: specifically, how our teams will work together.

Adapter Development Suite (ADS)

ADS is a suite of tools we designed to streamline the Adapter Certification Process. It allows our partners to:

  • Easily integrate with us
  • Independently build and test their adapter, and any adapter updates
  • Detect any issues with their code early in the development cycle

ADS features self-help guides and detailed instructions so a large portion of the process can be done independently.
