How to Tearsheet an Ad Campaign

What is a Tearsheet?

In advertising, a Tearsheet is a page cut (or torn) from a publication to prove to the client that the advertisement was published. In the Portal, the Tearsheet capability is used to test if a relevant ad request is actually being displayed by a Player.


Note: This option is only available for Ad Set based monetization players (not VRM).


How It Works

The Tearsheet sends a cookie to your browser when viewing the Tearsheet page. This intern enforces the selected Ad Campaign to any Players that have the relevant Ad Set and Ad Campaign assigned to them.

Note: The cookie will be active for a selected period according to the Tearsheet generation setting.


To generate a Tearsheet for an Ad Campaign you need to obtain a URL address that has the following:

  • A Player that is embedded on the page.
  • The Player is set to use Ad Set monetization settings (not VRM).
  • The Ad Campaign you wish to test is part of the Ad Set that is linked to the Player.
