Where do I find the ZoneID

Hi,

 

I'm following the instructions at:

 

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/29369/Managing_your_ad_inventory_using_the_dev...

 

However when I Click on App Setup,  I can't find a "Manage" link beside my application name.

 

Am I supposed to wait a period of several days?  I'm really confused here and any light on this subject would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Re: Where do I find the ZoneID

You can find it from:

App Setup > Manage Apps > then under the "Zones" header there will be a clickable number, click it > EXISTING ZONES > under the 'Actions' header select Choose > Code

 

The process is a bit long-winded. Let me know how this works for you.

Re: Where do I find the ZoneID

"Manage Apps" is a tab at the top of the page.

 

Have you created an app in the portal yet? That's a requisite to receiving a Zone ID.

Re: Where do I find the ZoneID

Hover your mouse over the "Actions" column, in the rows for your various zones. The "Choose" control should appear when hovered over.

Re: Where do I find the ZoneID

Hi,

 

hardly like the instructions,  I had to hover, choose zones, and then scroll to the bottom of the page, hover the mouse again and then choose Code..  Very confusing, but thank you..

 

Also when I view a zone, I see settings under "Invalid Zone Settings" i.e. ip Check, UA Check, Click Targeting Check.  I'm confused as to why I would have to worry about any of this when I'm using BB ad vendors shouldn't this stuff all be behind the scenes?

 

is there any proper documentation on this? which explains all these concepts...

 

thanks,

Re: Where do I find the ZoneID

Yeah, the instructions are fairly outdated. The serrvice is actually provided by a third-party and we'll hopefully be getting some improvements implemented in the coming while.

 

And yep, you should start receiving valid ads in time. Just make sure you start seeing your requst count increasing in your dashboard, that means everything is set up correctly.

Hi,

 

Yes, requests are increasing,  IS there anyway to get adsense embedded within cascades?

 

thanks,
