Create a Kochava-Certified Postback

Kochava-Certified Postbacks allow Kochava users to send a realtime feed of installs and in-app events to a Kochava-Certified partner. The endpoints and parameters included in these postbacks are defined within the integration, and managed by Kochava in conjunction with each specific partner. The Kochava-Certified Postback is the easiest way to establish a postback and should be used as the default method.

 

NOTE: Within Kochava, it is possible to create custom postbacks. For more information on creating a custom postback, refer to our Create a Custom Postbacks support document.

Network Specific Fields

Network Specific fields contain data that is required for postbacks to be properly sent to network partners based on the desired delivery settings. It is very important that the network specific fields be properly set up. For example, Facebook requires a Facebook App ID and specific event names for proper attribution.

For more information about Network Specific Fields, contact a Kochava account manager or network account manager.

 

A. Facebook Use Terms must be reviewed and accepted.
