DoubleClick Bid Manager API upgrading authorization scope to "sensitive"

On October 1, 2020, we are upgrading the classification of the authorization scope used for the DoubleClick Bid Manager API ( ) to “sensitive”. This upgrade is taking place to better secure the DBM API and the data retrieved from it.

Starting on October 1st, all unverified apps that are using the DBM API for the first time will encounter an “unverified app screen” upon attempted authentication. This screen can be removed by submitting your app to our verification process. This process usually takes about 3 to 5 business days. Information on how this process fits in the larger task of authorizing requests can be found in our guide.

Existing apps that began using the DBM API scope before October 1st will not see the “unverified app screen” and will not immediately need to go through the verification process. However, all apps accessing sensitive scopes will require explicit verification before the end of 2021. In anticipation of this requirement, it is recommended that existing apps complete the verification process at their earliest convenience.

If you run into issues or need help with this process, please contact us using our support contact form.
