Integrating with IX

The following tables list the integration options that are available with Index Exchange (IX).

Direct integrations

Direct integrations require more technical setup on your side but allow you to have better control over the integration and could help you reduce any potential third party fees. To see the formats that each direct integration type supports, see Formats supported by direct integration options.

Client-side integration options Description

IX Library

Integrate using IX Library and unlock access to the IX Library Ecosystem, including all certified header bidding and RTI adapters.

Prebid.js adapter

Integrate using Prebid.js, an open-source library for publishers to implement header bidding on their websites and manage multiple header bidding partners.

AMP Real Time Config (RTC)

Integrate using AMP Real Time Config (RTC) to allow IX to receive bid requests and return key-value targeting to the AMP runtime.

 

Server-side integration options Description

OpenRTB

Access IX’s omnichannel demand by integrating through a server-to-server OpenRTB connection.

Third-party integrations

When you retrieve demand from IX using a third party, that third party has already integrated with IX so the setup is simplified. An additional third party fee may apply in relation to their services. To see the formats that each third-party integration type supports, see Formats supported by third-party integration options.
