Retrieving parameters from the Chartboost Dashboard 

To enable Chartboost to work as an Ad Network with DT, you must obtain five parameters from your Chartboost account and insert them into the DT Console.

Set out below are the details of what parameters are required and how and where to obtain them.

Chartboost Parameter Description
Named Location Allows you to show different ad campaigns at different points in your game and fine-tune your campaigns' behavior from your dashboard.
App ID The unique ID of your app in the Chartboost system.
App Signature The unique secret signature of your app in the Chartboost system. Chartboost uses it to verify that you're the owner of your app. Make sure not to share it with anyone unauthorized.
User ID The unique ID of your account user on the Chartboost dashboard.
User Signature The unique secret signature of your account user in the Chartboost Dashboard. Chartboost uses it to verify that you're allowed to access account analytics. Make sure not to share it with anyone unauthorized.


Obtaining the Named Location - not relevant 

Each new app has a default Location assigned to it automatically upon creation (called Default). Additional Locations can be created by calling them from the SDK (as opposed to creating them via the dashboard).

For more information, click here.

adLocation values must cross a small threshold of activity (generally around 10 different ad creatives displayed per day). Otherwise, their stats are aggregated under the Default location. Click here for more information.
This might explain discrepancies in data between the DT and Chartboost reporting systems (especially for new locations).

DT recommends not using the default location but instead assigning a named location to each of the DT placements.

From Chartboost's main dashboard click>>  Monetization  >>  Select your app >> click the copy icon for each parameter. 

Obtaining the User ID and User Signature
