addBanner

Description: Add new banner

Implementation: URL/bnn/new

Method: POST/PUT

Pro tips

See our special page with details about banner properties and the corresponding fields in the REST API.

The easiest way to find out which banner parameters exist, but more importantly in which combination they work together, is to create a banner in the Revive Adserver user interface, and then to retrieve the details of that banner through the API using the getBanner method described above. This will show all banner parameters as entered, but now returned in JSON formatting. This is particularly useful to find out how to combine things like banner type, banner filename, url, htmlTemplate and so on.

Notes

Starting with v4.0, the addBanner function will return full details of the newly created banner, instead of just {“OK”}. This enables developers to quickly retrieve the ID of the newly created entity, and to check the default values assigned to attributes that were not included in the call to create the new entity.

modifyBanner

Description: Modify existing banner

Implementation: URL/bnn/[bannerId]

Method: POST/PUT
