Sunset of the Ad Manager API v202002

On Monday, March 1, 2021, in accordance with the deprecation schedule, v202002 of the Ad Manager API will sunset. At that time, any requests made to this version will return errors.

If you’re still using v202002, now is the time to upgrade to a newer release and take advantage of additional functionality. For example, in v202011 we added the getTrafficData method to the ForecastService, which is capable of exploring historical and forecasted network-level data for a particular date range and targeting configuration.

When you’re ready to upgrade, check the full release notes to identify any breaking changes. Keep in mind that v202002 is the final version to use int types for Activity and ActivityGroup, and all later versions use type long. After you’ve considered all of the changes, grab the latest version of your client library and update your code.

As always, don't hesitate to reach out to us on the developer forum with any questions.

Announcing v202002 of the Google Ad Manager API

We're happy to announce that v202002 of the Google Ad Manager API is available starting today. This version includes several new features around video ads.

For “Ad Exchange historical” reports, there are several new video Columns available beginning with “AD_EXCHANGE_VIDEO_”. Here are a few of the new metrics:

  • AD_EXCHANGE_VIDEO_START – the number of impressions where the video was played for video ads by Ad Exchange properties
  • AD_EXCHANGE_VIDEO_SKIPS – The number of times a skippable video is skipped
  • AD_EXCHANGE_VIDEO_UNMUTE – The number of times a user unmutes the video ad

You can now associate a video Creative with an ad registry, such as Ad-ID or Clearcast. Video metadata is also getting enhanced with the addition of Content.contentBundleIds to show which ContentBundles a Content object belongs to and Content.cmsMetadataValueIds to show which CmsMetadataValues are associated with a Content object.

The release notes contain the full list of API changes for v202002 and all other active API versions.

Feel free to reach out to us on the Ad Manager API forum with any API-related questions.
