Website Management

Documentation for all functionality to manage websites using the Revive Adserver REST API (get a list of publishers, get one publisher, add a publisher, modify a publisher, delete a publisher).

Note: in versions of Revive Adserver and OpenX Source prior to version 2.8, the term Publisher was used where we now see the word Website. For backward compatibility, we have decided to retain the word publisher in the API.

Notes

Starting with v4.0, the addPublisher function will return full details of the newly created website/publisher, 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.
