Bidder Bid Error Report API Service

The Bidder Bid Error Report helps you gain insight into your rejected demand through a randomly selected set of 1% of the errors logged on the Xandr platform. Error Count has been multiplied by 100 to account for the 1% sampling.

Use this report to troubleshoot buy-side and sell-side settings that result in auction errors, thereby blocking spend.  The goal is to help you eliminate the error in the future. You can find information on the owner, cause and recommended resolution for each error in Bid Error Codes

For instructions on retrieving a report, see Report Service or the example below.
