deliveryLimitations Hook

The deliveryLimitations hook allows plugins to add capabilities to Revive Adserver for defining delivery rules to be used as part of banner Delivery Options.

Revive Adserver supports 4 different groups within the deliveryLimitations hook:

  • Client;
  • Geo;
  • Site; and
  • Time.

These groups relate, respectively, to the delivery rules provided by the:

Each delivery rule requires two files :

  • One file to define the way the way the rule is displayed in the UI, and how data for the rule is managed/stored:
    • plugins/deliveryLimitations/{$GROUP}/{$RULE}.class.php
      • where {$GROUP} is one of the supported groups listed above; and
      • where {$RULE} is a string representing the delivery rule.
    • The file must define a class of the format:
      • class Plugins_DeliveryLimitations_{$GROUP}_{$RULE} extends Plugins_DeliveryLimitations
    • The class may override methods from the parent Plugins_DeliveryLimitations class as required to define the details of how the delivery rule works.
  • One file to define the way the rule is processed during delivery of banners (i.e. if the rule matches or fails):
    • plugins/deliveryLimitations/{$GROUP}/{$RULE}.delivery.php
    • The file must define a function of the format:
      • function MAX_check{$GROUP}_{$RULE}($limitation, $op, $aParams = array())
    • The function must return:
      • true if the rule passes (and the banner is permitted to be delivered); or
      • false if the rule fails (and the banner is not permitted to be delivered).
  • No labels
