Authorization: Allow Adverity to access LinkedIn Ads
If you choose Access using your credentials or Access using someone else's credentials, in Set up or edit Ad Accounts, you or the person granting access must choose one of the following options:
Choose Grant access to all Ad Accounts, including those created in the future to allow Adverity to access all existing Ad Accounts and all Ad Accounts created in the future.
Choose Select specific Ad Accounts to which you want to grant access to determine the specific Ad Accounts that you want Adverity to access. Adverity will not automatically have access to Ad Accounts created in the future. You will need to grant Adverity access to any Ad Accounts created in the future.
If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to LinkedIn Ads, all the Ad Accounts available to you using your credentials will be visible in the page to all Adverity users with permission to edit this .
If someone else uses their credentials to grant Adverity access to LinkedIn Ads, the same applies to the Ad Accounts available using their credentials.
