DEPRECATED IP Adress of Load Balancer

Ingenious is modernizing its infrastructure to improve reliability and scalability. As a part of this process, we will no longer be supporting the IP address 35.187.117.15 from 08.08.2022 (08 August 2022) on. This does not affect most customers, because the CNAME-DNS-Settings will be updated on our infrastructure automatically. That means that you most likely have to do nothing.

However, if you

  • hardcoded/limited any traffic in your infrastructure (proxies etc.),

  • product-data-download,

  • or any other system

to the deprecated IP-address 35.187.117.15, you need to remove this restriction.

DEPRECATED Conversion Model: Trail and Finance

Both conversion models are now combined by our new single conversion model.


New models:

  • i19s-insights.insights.insights_conversion (replaces i19s-insights.insights.finance_conversion and i19s-insights.insights.trail_conversion)

Renaming:

  • i19s-insights.insights.platform_performance -> i19s-insights.insights.insights_performance

  • i19s-insights.insights.platform_performance_billing -> i19s-insights.insights.insights_performance_billing

  • i19s-insights.insights.platform_performance_billing_vcas -> i19s-insights.insights.insights_performance_billing_vcas

Deletions:

These models are deprecated and will be removed from public access

  • i19s-insights.insights.finance_conversion

  • i19s-insights.insights.trail_conversion

  • i19s-insights.insights.finance_conversion_cnt

  • i19s-insights.insights.trail_conversion_cnt

We strongly recommend to migrate your reporting to the new model. In order to make it easier, we provided the documentation for the new conversion model in the Knowledge Base https://app.getresponse.com/click.html?x=a62b&lc=SO0xwa&mc=Jf&s=AwlN2F&u=GyCSr&z=EE0QwEh& as well as several example SQL queries https://ingenioustechnologies.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/KB/pages/3192488025

Advantages:

  • Instead of two separate perspectives from Trail and Finance, you will now be able to consume one single conversion data structure, combining the best from both sides.

  • The complete customer journey including not attributed touch points

  • One list of positions which is used for eCommerce and simple conversions, containing all commercial data like revenue, quantity, discount, shipping, tax as well tracking categories and position status

  • Dedicated status for attribution and rating

  • Dedicated lists for free parameters on conversions and touch points

Parameter changes:

  • The API-Key is now a query parameter named apiKey not a path parameter

  • The feed ID is now a query parameter named feedId and not part of a path parameter

  • The Adspace parameter was renamed: pidadspaceId

  • The parameter format now takes the values: CSV|XML

  • The parameter for csv separator was renamed: sepcsvSeparator and takes the values: SEMICOLON|COMMA|TAB

  • The parameter compression now takes the values: GZIP|ZIP

  • The parameter columns has not changed

  • The parameters smc1 to smc6 were renamed to subId1 to subId6

Old Link:

Compression

  • No action is required if your partners use zip or gzip compressed downloads.

  • If your partners use the default value for the query parameter compression (by not specifying it in the download-URL), your partner will receive compressed feeds after Apr 30, 2022. Your partners should be informed about this.

Rate Limiting

No more JSON format support

  • Inform your partner, that the format JSON is no longer available so they have to switch to one of the other available formats (CSV or XML)

Product Data Export rate limit changes

Rate limiting will be more strict for uncompressed downloads to further emphasize on the additional bandwidth these downloads produce. Read the partner documentation for downloading feeds for more details.

DEPRECATED Discount rating in Commission Model

The usage of a submitted Discount Value (dsv) does not need to be controlled by an additional flag. We will remove this flag from the Commission model. All submitted Discount Value (dsv) will be applied to the Commission and Fee calculation.

DEPRECATED Discounted Order Value (discOrdValue)

This parameter is going to be removed from the Conversion Tag. The idea of having an additional parameter parallel to Discount Value (dsv) was misleading.

Please use the migration path provided and contact support or the Insights team if you have any problems.
