DFP API is becoming Google Ad Manager API

With DoubleClick for Publishers becoming Google Ad Manager, the API will be undergoing changes to follow suit. Over the next month, there will be changes to our documentation and client libraries, but no API entities are changing yet.


In late July, references to “DFP” will become “Google Ad Manager” or just “Ad Manager”. Also, the documentation URL will change from https://developers.google.com/doubleclick-publishers/ to https://developers.google.com/ad-manager/.

We will support redirects to all documentation pages. For example, if you have a bookmark for the ReportService, you don’t need to do anything for this bookmark to continue working.

Client Libraries

Each of our client libraries will be updated to remove references to DFP in the v201808 release, which is currently scheduled for August 14, 2018. For example, in the Java client library, the DfpServices class will be renamed to AdManagerServices.

Each client library will have its own guidelines for what needs to be updated. In the announcement blog post for v201808 we will link to these guides. Keep in mind that you’ll only need to refactor your code once upgrading to v201808 and beyond, so using the DFP names will still be supported by some versions of the client library until August, 2019.

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to us on our forum.
