Using Ad Inspector in Firefox requires the generation and use of an Authorization Key.

Generate an Authorization Key

  1. Select Ad Quality | Ad Inspector from the main navigation.
  2. Click the Generate New Key  button displayed at top of the Ad Inspector License Summary table.
  3. In the User Name box, enter the name of publisher for which the new key will be generated.
    Note: A publisher can generate a maximum of 10 keys.
  4. Click Save.

Authorization Key Details

The Ad Inspector License Summary table provides the following information and options for generated keys:

  • Key: The authorization key generated for the publisher
  • Assigned to: Name of the publisher associated with the authorization key
  • Generated On: The date the key was generated
  • Install before: The date by which the key must be added in the Ad Inspector panel; otherwise the key will be terminated (Strike-through indicates that either the authorization key has been terminated or the date has passed.)
  • Expires On: The date after which the key will expire. (Strike-through on a date indicates that the authorization key has expired.)
  • Action: Use the Delete icon to delete unwanted or expired keys from PubMatic.  Use the Edit icon to view/edit Authorization Key preferences or override the default email.
