onInterstitialAdClosed not firing and shows error in Xcode

See original GitHub issue


I am trying to implement interstitial ads. The ad loading is working perfectly fine and I can see ‘onInterstitialAdLoaded’ is getting fired. The ad showing is also working and I see my test ad pop up. I would like to load a new ad when the ad closed event is fired, however the event does not fire and I see this error in Xcode when I click to close the ad. Any ideas on how I can resolve this? I am testing on an iPhone 12 Pro simulator.

Error: ProcessAssertion: Failed to acquire RBS Background assertion 'WebProcess Background Assertion' for process with PID 83552, error: Error Domain=RBSAssertionErrorDomain Code=3 "Target is not running or required target entitlement is missing" UserInfo={RBSAssertionAttribute=<RBSDomainAttribute| domain:"" name:"Background" sourceEnvironment:"(null)">, NSLocalizedFailureReason=Target is not running or required target entitlement is missing}


 loadInterstitialAd() {
      adId: this.adInfo.interstitialId
    AdMob.addListener('onInterstitialAdLoaded', this.onInterstitialAdLoaded);
    AdMob.addListener('onInterstitialAdOpened', this.onInterstitialAdOpened);
    AdMob.addListener('onInterstitialAdClosed', this.onInterstitialAdClosed);

 showInterstitialAd() {

  private onInterstitialAdLoaded = (info: any) => {
   console.log('Ad loaded');

  private onInterstitialAdOpened = (info: any) => {
   console.log('Ad opened');

  private onInterstitialAdClosed = (info: any) => {
   console.log('Ad closed');

@joaolnpr I am by no means an expert on Google AdMob but yes, I think your app has to be listed. Sounds like a Google AdMob problem not related to this plugin though. Maybe try contacting the Google AdMob support if you are still having those issues.
