Use Case: ID Mapping


Send a mapping file server-side to allow for mapping your TPID to a Lotame ID (PID, MAIDs (IDFA, GAID), CTV IDs (RIDA, TVOS, etc)).  This allows Spherical to connect their userIDs to your TPID for user linking and server-side data transfer.

Below is the description of the details needed for the segmentmembership.json.gz file to successfully transmit your ID Mappings to Spherical. Combine this with the Transfer Mechanisms and File specifications pages to complete the integration.

When sending your ID Mappings to Spherical, Lotame supports the below fields to pass the appropriate information to the userID you pass.
