IMA allowable redirects

In the latest release notes you mention "Added the ability to set the number of allowable redirects in IMA above the default for cases like header bidding."
Unfortunately I couldn't find any documentation on how to do it nor any options in the ad schedule configuration.
So, how do I set the number?

I still wasn't able to find any information regarding this feature nor did I hear back form you.
Any info how this works?

Hi Jens,

Heidi is out of the office so I apologize for any delay in responding.

The maximum number of redirects for the IMA client can be set using the advertising.maxRedirects configuration option. For example:

  file: "video.mp4",
  advertising: {
    client: "googima",
    tag: "tag.xml",
    maxRedirects: 2

This configuration option has not yet been added to our documentation but will be soon.

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

Thank you!
