New OAuth 2.0 Scope for the AdWords API

A new OAuth 2.0 scope for the AdWords API was introduced along with the v201406 client library release. The OAuth 2.0 scope identifies the service that your application can access during the authorization process.

The new scope is: This new scope better aligns with the naming conventions of many of the other Google APIs.

Starting today, use the new scope when authorizing access for the AdWords API regardless of the AdWords API version. All our current AdWords API client libraries use this new scope.

But I have refresh tokens from the deprecated scope...

Don’t worry if your client code is using refresh tokens authorized with the deprecated scope - they will still work. However, new authorizations should specify the new scope.

As always, if you have any questions, drop us a line on the AdWords API forum or Ads Developers Google+ page.
