How Does It Work?

The lists you create contain dimension values, such as placement names, banner IDs, and others. Any type of value passed from a traffic source in a custom variable can be used in such lists.

These lists can be then used in rules as a condition. You can create two types of conditions with lists:

  • If a given dimension IS on the list

  • If a given dimension IS NOT on the lists

When the rule finds or doesn't find a given dimension on the selected list in a given time frame, it will launch set action or actions.

I. Create a List

Before you will be able to create a rule with a list, you have to create one. In order to create a list, perform the steps below:
