This guide explains how to collect data from (Beta) Google Search Ads 360. To learn how to collect data from a different data source, go back to the Available data sources in Adverity overview.

Introduction

For a list of the fields that you can collect from (Beta) Google Search Ads 360, see (Beta) Google Search Ads 360.

This connector uses the new Google Search Ads 360 Reporting API. It will replace the previous Google Search Ads 360 (Legacy) connector. For more information, see the Google announcement.

Limitations

Collecting data from (Beta) Google Search Ads 360 comes with the following limitations:

  • Entity IDs (agencyId, advertiserId, engineAccountId) used in the legacy API are currently not available.

  • Some combinations of custom floodlight variables and other fields result in errors when fetching data. It is currently not possible to use the API to determine valid combinations.

    To avoid errors, use the (Beta) Google Search Ads 360 UI to find a valid combination of fields, then use this combination of fields in Adverity.

  • (Beta) Google Search Ads 360 can collect a maximum of 1 million rows per single report. To fetch more data than this, split your fetch into smaller date ranges in the Initial Fetch step of creating a datastream.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access (Beta) Google Search Ads 360

  1. If you choose Access using your credentials or Access using someone else's credentials, in Set up or edit Client accounts, you or the person granting access must choose one of the following options:

    • Choose Grant access to all Client accounts, including those created in the future to allow Adverity to access all existing Client accounts and all Client accounts created in the future.

    • Choose Select specific Client accounts to which you want to grant access to determine the specific Client accounts that you want Adverity to access. Adverity will not automatically have access to Client accounts created in the future. You will need to grant Adverity access to any Client accounts created in the future.

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to (Beta) Google Search Ads 360, all the Client accounts available to you using your credentials will be visible in the Authorizations page to all Adverity users with permission to edit this authorization.

    This is important to consider if you do not want all Adverity users with permission to edit the authorization to be able to see the details of the Client accounts. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
