The Trade Desk webhook

This article gives you knowledge of how webhooks send information from the Trade Desk to Meiro Events. 

The Trade Desk is an online demand-side platform that provides buying tools for digital media buyers. The Trade Desk enables collecting more data by automatically adjusting the bidding strategy based on the insights and outcomes that matter to your brand, increases operational efficiency by automating campaign setup and management workflows, and pushes campaign data to CDP for holistic analysis and insights.


You need to follow these key requirements to properly set up the webhook:

  1. You need to set an expiration for your token and ensure you include the token in the header of any other endpoint interactions. 

  2. The token should be stored and regenerated periodically. It is recommended that you generate a new token once every 24 hours.
