Thrive Setup Guide

Once you have already connected one of the supported traffic source accounts in the first step of the Account Wizard process, now you can proceed on connecting your tracking platform in order to leverage the power of automatic campaign optimization.

Please follow the below guide on how to connect your Thrive tracker account to TheOptimizer Native.

Step 1: Click on Account Wizard on the left-side menu of your screen.
Step 2: Select one of the previously connected traffic source accounts and click next
Step 3: Click the Add new button in the Tracker Setup step of the account wizard then enter the below required information.

Select Thrive tracker from the first drop-down menu in  the new tracker configuration dialog, then fill in the required information and click Save Tracker to move to the next and final step.

In this final step, you simply need to specify which of the traffic source configurations found in your Thrive tracker belong to the traffic source added or selected in the first step of the Account Wizard.

As you may notice from the above screenshot, please make sure all the required traffic source tracking tokens are already present in your Thrive traffic source configuration.

Important Note!

In case one of the required traffic source tracking tokens is missing in your tracker configuration, please make sure that besides updating the traffic source configuration on your tracker, you update your current campaign links as well otherwise your campaigns statistics may be inaccurate.

 

Where do I find the API Information?

In case you don't know where to find the API information on your Thrive tracker please refer to the instructions below.

Login to your Thrive then go to Settings > API Access

In the API Authentication screen you will find the needed information as shown in the image below.

 

Important Note!

Thrive has an API limit of 600 request per 10 minutes which is easily reached. We strongly recommend that you change the default value and set it to 2400 requests. 
You can do this by going to your thrive installation on your server and editing this file: /app/config.inc.php
At the very top of the file , right after <?php add this line: 


<?php
define('MAX_API_REQUESTS', 2400);
….
?>
