Upcoming sunset for DBM API v1, SDF Download and Line Item services

As announced in August, deprecated services in the DoubleClick Bid Manager (DBM) API, comprised of DBM API v1, the DBM API v1.1 SDF Download service, and the DBM API v1.1 Line Item service, will be sunset on February 26, 2021.

If you are still using the DBM API v1 Reporting service, you must migrate to the DBM API v1.1 Reporting service before the sunset date to avoid an interruption of service. Consult the API release notes for 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. You have to update your implementation to traverse multiple pages if you want 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 and start using the Display & Video 360 API to download SDFs and manage your line items.

Sunset of deprecated Geo Region targeting options in Display & Video 360 API

Starting January 2021, over 1500 deprecated Geo Region targeting options will no longer be supported in Display & Video 360. This announcement, along with the full list of deprecated options, can be found on the Geography Targeting Help Center article. These deprecated targeting options reflect outdated geographical regions and, therefore, do not change the serving of line items.

How will this happen in the API?

This sunset will be reflected in the Display & Video 360 API through the following sequence of events:
  1. Starting today, we will begin removing deprecated targeting from older resources. These resources consist of Line Items or Insertion Orders that are currently archived or have been paused for more than six months.
  2. In February 2021, the deprecated targeting options will no longer be retrievable through the Targeting Options service and attempts at assigning or removing deprecated targeting through the Line Item Assigned Targeting Options service will return an error.
  3. After the deprecated targeting options are no longer able to be assigned, we will begin removing deprecated targeting from all remaining resources. Any line items only using deprecated targeting will be paused upon the removal of said targeting. This concludes the formal sunset of the deprecated targeting options.

What should I do to prepare for this?

In anticipation of this sunset, it is recommended that you do the following:

  1. Check to see if any existing Line Items utilize deprecated targeting options. Use advertisers.lineItems.targetingTypes.assignedTargetingOptions.list to list the assigned Geo Region targeting for each active line item and check the targeting against the deprecated targeting options. Remove or replace any deprecated targeting as soon as possible using advertisers.lineItems.bulkEditLineItemAssignedTargetingOptions.
  2. If you are storing oft-used targeting option IDs locally, cross-reference them against the list of deprecated targeting options. This will avoid errors caused by attempting to assign sunset targeting options.

Should I expect more deprecations in the future?

Users should expect the occasional deprecation and sunset of targeting options in Display & Video 360 in much smaller quantities than this deprecation. As such, future deprecations likely won’t be announced through a blog post or documentation change.

In order to account for these deprecations, it is recommended that you use targetingTypes.targetingOptions.get to confirm that a targeting option is still available before assigning it. This should be done before assigning any option not obtained through the Targeting Options service, including those stored locally or copied from existing targeting. This will avoid errors caused by attempting to assign deprecated targeting.

You can read more about the Targeting Options and Assigned Targeting Options services in our reference documentation and on the Set Targeting page of our Managing Line Items guide.

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

Reporting queries.createquery

Line Item lineitems.downloadlineitems

lineitems.uploadlineitems
No. Use the new Display &
Video 360 API instead.
SDF Download sdf.download No. Use the new Display &

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.
