NEW FEATURE System generated default API keys introduced

Until now, every new user who wanted to leverage the Ingenious APIs needed to create their API keys manually. With the increasing demand of API usage due to our public network customers, we removed that step and introduce system generated default API keys.

Every user now has a default API key. This key is also used for all UI exports (creatives, voucher, product data, conversions, …). This means that you can use these links directly to automate your exports.

Menu: Access -> Credentials

November 23, 2021

IMPROVED Enable Analytics in Self-Service

Until now, enabling Insights Analytics could only be done by Ingenious Account Managers. We extended our Ingenious Access Management (IAM) so that users who possess the permission can now enable the functionality for an Advertiser in on their own (self-service).

IMPROVED Enable Single Touch Attribution Manager in Self-Service

Until now, enabling Trail Single Touch Attribution (STA) Manager could only be done by Ingenious Account Managers. We extended our Ingenious Access Management (IAM) so that users who possess the permission can now enable the functionality for an Advertiser in on their own (self-service).

November 01, 2021

NEW FEATURE New API documentation

Partner Marketing is all about automation. Using our API you can automate recurring tasks like campaign management, sales validation, and more. We took the time to improve our OpenAPI specification, and use a new documentation system RapiDoc to generate the documentation.

API separation

We now separate the API documentation into three difference areas: Platform, Agency, and Partner.

Execute API calls directly from the documentation

A new powerful feature is, that you can enter your API key into the documentation, and try out all API calls directly from the docs:


Platform-independent documentation

All customers can access their API documentation on their custom domain. However, in order to simplify the integration of Ingenious with the Marketing ecosystem, we now support a unified API on the domain https://api.ingenious.cloud. This API works with all platform-specific API-keys from all platforms. It also has it’s own documentation for Platform, Agency, and Partner APIs.


Default Response Headers

We extended our API gateway to include three new HTTP Response headers, so you can ensure that you use the right platform. This is especially useful for Tool-vendors who want to integrate with Ingenious platforms.

ig-network-id: 216 ig-network-logo-url: https://img.net.ingenioustechnologies.com/uploaded/logo/614c965015b24_Ingeniousdoubleline20212000x825.png ig-network-name: Ingenious Technologies

Link to the API documentation

All of your Users (Admins, Advertisers, Partners) can find the link to the respective API documentation in their Access menu.

FIXED Voucher Export (vouchers)

The voucher export had contained tracking urls for inactive or not existing partnerships. We have fixed this.

October 08, 2021

The tracking parameter uniqid allows to track Conversions with a valid UUID. This allows you to query or validate those Conversions easily.

Read more bout using this in tracking implementation or in validation of Conversions

September 28, 2021

New feature Product data feed api endpoint

We had several requests asking how to query product data feeds of an advertiser and get more information about its config and execution data.

This endpoint uses IQL (Ingenious Query Language) which you will find more information about here.

Partners can now filter Advertisers by their promotion country.

Septemper 15, 2021

NEW FEATURE Advertiser Explorer: Default tracking link for Partners

Partner can now copy the default tracking link directly from the Advertiser Explorer. There is just one click needed to load the link onto the clipboard.

September 01, 2021

IMPROVED XML product feed mapping

It was previously not possible to upload a xml feed that had the same tag in different levels because we only used the tag name to map the value.

Now we use the whole path to the tag as its mapping-name.

The following schema can now be used without any data loss and confusion regarding the names (price vs. shipping_price)

<item> ... <price>10</price> <shipping> <price>3</price> ... </shipping> </item>

August 20, 2021

IMPROVED Advertiser Export: More data and improved filtering

The classical export of Advertiser on partner side has been improved. By the context of an Adspace, the export of Advertiser is now containing a complete set of data as well as a default tracking click url. This will support your Partner by implementing tracking urls.

IMPROVED Advertiser Explorer: Filtering by relationship status

The Advertiser Explorer has been improved by a higher performance as well as new filter for the relationship. The new filter for relationship status allows your partner to search for Advertiser still not applied or within an active relationship etc.

We have added a CSV download which allows you to see all Conversions, Views, Clicks as well as Transaction, that you have selected for invoicing the advertiser.

August 06, 2021

FIXED Device Id on server to server conversions in reports

Server to server conversions themselves do not contain device information so the device id on them was always set to “desktop“ in analytic reports.

Now the device id of the most appropriate user journey touchpoint is applied on server to server conversions.

Optional you can provide the appropriate device id using a parameter called 'device_type' set to one of supported device id values: “mobile“, “tablet“, “desktop“

August 05, 2021

NEW FEATURE Safe time with automatic confirmation by default

A default time for automatic confirmation of a Conversion can now be defined in commission models. This allows you to run the automatic confirmation for all Conversions except for those with a specific configuration in your Commission Model.

NEW FEATURE Voucher now contain trackable landing-page links

Vouchers to be used by partners for promotion of campaigns now contain tracking click links, which removes the need for your partners to create a deeplink to the landing-page manually. If a voucher does not have a dedicated landing-page, the default landing-page of the advertiser is used. Also the voucher-export now contains those tracking click links.

IMPROVED Remove the grid-view for adspaces in favor to the table view

We removed the adspace grid view in favor to the table view to optimize usability for partners with a large number of adspaces.

August 04, 2021

FIXED Upload of multiple hosted creatives

NEW FEATURE  Server-Side Webhooks: modifying parameters using regular expressions

You can now manipulate parameters forwarded via Webhooks using regular expressions . For detailed information please read the documentation.

July 29, 2021

New menu navigation

We created a new menu-structure as well as a new navigation type:

The new structure reflects the Ingenious products and was inspired by customer feedback. We made all tools that were previously only to reach through the advertiser manager, available in the menu.

We save the last selected advertiser and make it the default whenever opening another mask where an advertiser selection is needed. You can change the advertiser by clicking on it in the breadcrumb.

Instead of two levels we now have three levels. Also the levels will not be visible all the time but instead only open up on hover and disappear again on a click to either a menu point or the grey-ish space next to it.

We prepared a more in-depth article of the changes: https://ingenioustechnologies.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/KB/pages/2917400579 .

July 26, 2021

NEW FEATURE Server-Side Webhooks: basket array

We implemented a new way to submit basket data in server side webhooks: You can now iterate over the baskets and access its fields to send them as ordered lists, e.g.: yourcode.tracking.org?basket=#{BASKET_ARRAY_BEGIN separator='|'}#{BASKET_VALUE_pid}#{BASKET_ARRAY_END} 

For further explanation and all possible parameters please read the documentation.

July 12, 2021


FIXED Ad-Blockers can severely influence the operation of the user interface. The Ad-Blocker-Detector responsible for informing users about activated ad blockers stopped working a while ago. It is fixed now.

July 9, 2021


FIXED Under circumstances of some browser, you were not able to add dashboard widgets to your dashboards. We fixed this issue, so you can overwatch the performance of your partnerships again with your flexible and individual dashboards.


IMPROVED Exports revealed some unnecessary info messages inside downloaded documents when there was no data available. We figured these are irritating and make programming automated integrations harder, so we removed them.

IMPROVED Some Exports stated that there is the possibility, that there was a limit to the amount of data being loaded by a single export. This is not the case, so we removed this message.

IMPROVED For all exports we removed an artificial limit of 100 days for time ranges.

NEW FEATURE Conversion Requests

Would you like to allow your platform partner to raise a request regarding conversions?

  • We enable both "create new conversions" and "modify existing conversions" with full access to all relevant data.

  • The status of a conversion request shows the current process status such as "requested", "accepted" or "processed". This provides the essential communication between requesting users and "decision makers".

NEW FEATURE Advertiser Explorer and Profile for Partner UI

The new Advertiser Explorer is available on the Partner platform from now on. It will replace the old Program catalogue soon.

It makes it easier for partners to discover advertisers due to tons of new filters.

For example you can filter by certain attributes of an advertiser: only show me advertisers that offer a product data feed and use first party tracking. And then sort to see the advertisers with the highest EPC first.

Platform administrators can enable the Advertiser Explorer for all partners in your platform configuration settings. For more information on the Explorer please read our documentation.
