Yahoo Gemini Integration

In this article, we’ll integrate a Yahoo Gemini data source with Y42.

On our platform you can configure your Yahoo Gemini integration to query all of your Yahoo Gemini accounts and combine them into a single table per report. It is also possible to load data from different Yahoo Gemini Ads accounts by selecting the desired accounts and reports you would like to import into Y42.

You can find the list of available reports and the available columns, dimension, and metrics for each report on Yahoo Gemini API documentation (Verizon Media Native).

 

Overview

Authentication: OAuth
Settings: Historical Date selection
Schema type: Fixed
Update Type: Full import
 

Authentication

OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between you and the service provider. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. For instance, when you tell tell Facebook that it’s OK for another application or website to access your profile. To sum up, you only need to have an existing account to authorize the access.

 

Import Settings

By default the historical date will be set to one year ago. Refer to your own datasource to decide from which exact date you would want to retrieve data.
 

Account pre-requisites

You will need an active Yahoo Gemini account with permission to access data from accounts you'd like to sync. If the user account used to connect to the integration has restricted permissions - meaning the user doesn’t have access to all campaigns or ads - there might be issues when replicating data. Even if you only intend to sync partial data after completing the integration, the user's Yahoo Gemini account should still have full access.
 

Schema

You can find the full list of available reports and their columns/dimensions/metrics you are able to import to your Y42 instance on Verizon Native Ad Platform API.
 

Updating your data

For this source you can schedule full imports. Every time the source updates it will fully sync all your data. You have the option of scheduling updates by the month, weeks, days, and even by the hour.
