November 22, 2019 - Xandr's API Breaking Change Notice - Service Deprecation

On January 28, 2020, we're making a change to the Line Item Service to enhance and streamline the way in which you target inventory. This change will only affect the way you're using Augmented Line Items (ALIs). ALIs are line items that have their line_item_type field set to standard_v2. Please be sure to adjust your API integrations accordingly.

Line Item Service Update

Previously, you might have used the inventory_type field to target RTB (Open Exchange) and/or Managed inventory by setting the enum field to one of the following:

  • "real_time" - targets RTB (Open Exchange)
  • "direct" - targets Managed
  • "both" - targets both RTB and Managed

Since April 28, 2018, the inventory_type field hasn't been required because we've added the supply_strategies object to the line item service. This object contains three boolean fields that can be set to true or false to target any combination of RTB (Open Exchange), Managed, and/or Deals inventory:

  • "rtb" - targets RTB (Open Exchange)
  • "managed" - targets Managed
  • "deals"- targets Deals

When any of the fields in the supply_strategies object are set to true on an ALI, the inventory_type field is ignored and unable to be set for that line item. Because of this behavior, we'll be deprecating the inventory_type field as of January 28, 2020. Therefore, you'll need to update your API integrations to support the supply_strategies object. For more information, please see Line Item Service.

Deprecated Services

As of January 28, 2020, the following services will no longer be supported:

  • Placement Group Service

    The Placement Group Service will be deprecated in favor of the Site Service, which has been available for the past few years.
