Sunset of DBM API v1, SDF Download and Line Item services

Today we’re announcing the deprecation of the Doubleclick Bid Manager (DBM) API v1.1 Line Item service and the sunset of all deprecated DBM API services on February 26, 2021. Deprecated DBM API services include the entirety of DBM API v1 and DBM API v1.1 Structured Data File (SDF) Download service. This sunset was originally scheduled for June 15, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19.

Refer to the table below to verify if the methods you are currently using will be available in v1.1 after February 26, 2021:

Service Methods Available in v1.1 after
February 26, 2021?
Reporting queries.createquery





Line Item lineitems.downloadlineitems

No. Use the new Display &
Video 360 API instead.
SDF Download No. Use the new Display &
Video 360 API instead.

If you are still using the DBM API v1 Reporting service, you must migrate to v1.1 by the sunset date to avoid an interruption of service. Consult the API release notes for the finer details of the changes between v1 and v1.1. Differences to note during this migration include:
  • Queries created and accessed through the Reporting service require more specific filters in the params.groupBy field in v1.1. You might have to add more values to the params.groupBy field in order to create the same report structure generated in v1.
  • Responses from queries.listqueries and reports.listreports calls are paginated in v1.1. Users have to update their implementation to traverse multiple pages if they wish to consume more than the first 100 items returned.

If you are using any version of any other DBM API service, you must migrate to the Display & Video 360 (DV360) API.

Guides are available to help you set up the Display & Video 360 API and get started using it to download SDFs and manage your line items.
