OpenX to handle publishers with special rights

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

Question:

we’re an advertising company that congregates publisher websites and sell inventory as an industry wide package and not as individual websites.

Therein lies our concern with regards to utilizing OpenX which caters mainly to a single publisher managing their web inventories. We’re interested in having a more customized version of OpenX which introduces another layer, that allows us to delegate specific rights to publishers and allow them to view campaigns that are running on their sites only, as currently there is no straightforward means of allowing this due to the fact that our campaigns run across multiple publisher’s sites.

Answer:

I have gone through your requirements and let me explain what I understood.

I think you want publisher to create campaigns and banners which will run in his own site only and he can manage his own campaign inventory.

(As this campaign will not display in other publisher sites, other publishers can not see this campaign.)

Also, Publisher will not have other campaigns permissions because other campaigns may display in other publisher’s sites (As current OpenX does).

So, we need to allow him to manage his zones as well as campaigns which will run only on in his website (I am not sure whether this campaigns will be created by him or any advertisers or admin.).

We have to make new layer (with required permissions to publishers) where this functionality can be implemented.

This will take approximately 15 to 25 days according to depth of requirements.
