  1. In the IX app, go to Controls > Private Exchange > Deals.

  2. To diagnose a deal from the Deals page screen, click in the Actions column, click .

  3. In the Diagnose Deal section, click any of the following tests to view the diagnostics:

    Test Description
    Deal setup Runs a group of deal setup tests to make sure that there are no problems with how you set up the deal.
    DSP Helps you to understand what could be wrong with the deal that might prevent a buyer (demand-side platform) bidding on it.
    Campaigns Lists all the campaigns that are bidding on the deal, highlighting which ones are not able to spend due to a particular problem. This list can be empty if no campaigns were found because the buyer is not bidding.
    GAM Takes insights from your Google Ad Manager for deals that have key-value pairs on dedicated line items. These scans only work for deals that are placed on dedicated line items with key-value pairs.
