Kochava Google Configuration

The following guide will walk you through the steps for enabling the integration between Kochava and Bidalgo.

Step 1 - Basic Kochava Configuration

  1. Log in to the Kochava dashboard.

  2. Create the following :

    1. App - http://support.kochava.com/create-manage-apps/create-edit-apps

    2. Campaign & Segment  - https://support.kochava.com/campaign-management/create-an-install-campaign


Step 2 - Kochava Google Adwords Configuration

In the Google Adwords configuration (NOT the Bidalgo config) please include the  'Customer ID' which corresponds to the UAC google account. 


Step 3 - Creating a Tracker

  1. Navigate to the desired app
  2. Select App Tools>Partner Configuration
  3. Add new configuration →select Bidalgo - Google Adwords and click Go

Step 4 - Configure Post-backs 

Kochava-certified post-backs allow Kochava users to send a real-time feed of installs and in-app events to a Kochava-certified partner. The endpoints and parameters included in these post-backs are defined within the integration, and managed by Kochava in conjunction with each specific partner. The Kochava-certified post-back is the easiest way to establish a post-back and should be used as the default method for this process.


Step 4.1 - Install Postback

Install event does not require any configuration in the SDK.

  1. To configure an install event postback, click Install > Postback Tools > Editimage2017-3-30_10-28-43.png
  2. Enter the following:

    1. Bundle / App ID: either App id for apple / Bundle Identifier for Android.

    2. Delivery Delay: We recommend leaving this as Real Time Delivery (the default).

    3. Retry Attempts: We recommend leaving this as 3 Attempts (the default).

  3. Click Saveimage2018-4-30_13-44-43.png


Event Association Look-back window.

The Event Association Look-back determines the time frame that Kochava will associate a post-install event with an attributed install. The Event Association Look-back window can be set from one minute up to 365 days, or an unlimited (by default) amount of time.

Example USE CASE: An advertiser has a specific time frame in which they require a network to have an attributed install and post-install event in order to obtain payment. The Event Association Lookback window provides the tool to specifically track the installs and post-install events that fall within the desired time frame.


Step 4.2 - Purchase Postback

  1. Select the In App Purchase Event, and click Edit.

  2. Follow the same instructions as for Install Event above.

  3. Configure events in the Kochava SDK.

  4. If you are unable to locate this, please follow the instructions on adding purchase events in the SDK.

    1. To do so, navigate to: https://support.kochava.com/sdk-integration, and select your platform.

    2. Look for Events methods. From there you can add purchase events.
