VAST Marcos and SSL support

Dear team, could you please help me with if we will need to replace all macros in VAST/VPAID tags?

I have VAST demand tag like below: 1)


I'm only replacing these JW marcos:


will it cause any issue or what are the mandatory macros.

2) Does JW auto toggles the URL. Like if I have publisher page starting with https and demand is with http (If this demand tag has auto toggle ability) then JW supports?

Hi Abhijit,

The ad tag URL you provided in #1 is working in our Ad Tester found on our Developer Site, so I would assume it should work in the player when it is embedded on your site.

As for what the mandatory macros would be, that would be a question for your ad network as it would be up to them to determine which macros were mandatory for the ad to be filled.

As for auto-toggling the URL, if you embed a HTTPS ad tag in our player and embed the player on a HTTPS page, but the ad tag ends up requesting to a non-secure (HTTP) resource, then it cannot be expected to play properly in the player as non-secure resources cannot be requested on secure web pages. Our player does not automatically toggle the protocol used in the redirect because this is hard-coded into the VAST response returned by your ad network.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
