Step 4: Retrieve the Parameters from InMobi

To enable InMobi to work as an Ad Network on the FairBid Mediation Platform, you must obtain four from your InMobi account and later insert the details in the Fyber FairBid SDK integration.

Set out below are the details of what parameters are required, how and where to obtain them from the InMobi system.

The parameters required depend on whether you are configuring the network at the App Level or Placement Level in the Fyber console.

Account ID The unique ID of your account in the InMobi system Both
