Postponement of DBM API v1 and SDF Download Service Sunset

We’re officially postponing the planned sunset of the Doubleclick Bid Manager (DBM) API v1 and the DBM API v1.1 Structured Data File (SDF) Download service.

Originally scheduled for June 15, 2020, we are delaying the sunset indefinitely in order to account for the difficulties many users are facing due to COVID-19. We’re hoping that this postponement frees up room for users to address more immediately pressing issues. An updated sunset schedule will be announced at a later date.

Although a sunset date is no longer scheduled, these services are still deprecated and migrations to DBM API v1.1 and the Display & Video 360 (DV360) API are recommended.

Deprecation of DBM API v1 and SDF Download Service

Today we’re announcing the deprecation of the Doubleclick Bid Manager (DBM) API v1 and the DBM API v1.1 Structured Data File (SDF) Download service. These services will no longer be supported and will be fully sunset on June 15, 2020. Refer to the table below to verify if methods you’re using will be available in v1.1 after June 15, 2020:


Service Methods Available in v1.1 after June 15, 2020?
Reporting queries.createquery
queries.deletequery
queries.getquery
queries.listqueries
queries.runquery
reports.listreports
Yes
Line Item Settings lineitems.downloadlineitems
lineitems.uploadlineitems
Yes
SDF Download sdf.download No. Use the new Display & Video 360 API instead.



If you are using the DBM API v1 Line Item Settings service or 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. Important things to know are:
  • 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 they generated in v1.
  • Responses from listqueries and 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.
  • The Line Item Settings service had no changes between v1 and v1.1. Users only have to update the version they are using.
The SDF Download service is deprecated in DBM API v1 and v1.1. Users should immediately migrate to the new Display & Video 360 API, which was released earlier this week. The Display & Video 360 API offers a new asynchronous SDF Download Service featuring new filter options and a new download format compared to its DBM API counterpart.

Guides are available to help you set up the new Display & Video 360 API, as well as use it to get started downloading SDFs.

Introducing Display & Video 360 API v1

Today we’re releasing the Display & Video 360 API v1. It offers a new, improved way to interact with your Display & Video 360 resources programmatically.

This initial API release includes new asynchronous Structured Data File (SDF) download functionality. This allows for the generation and downloading of large SDFs without worrying about individual API requests timing out. This is a change compared to the existing DoubleClick Bid Manager (DBM) API SDF Download service. Along with this change, other major changes include:
  • New default version logic that utilizes the default version of the partner or advertiser specified by the user.
  • New filter capabilities, including the ability to specify the exact resources to include in the generated files.
  • New response format that returns the generated SDFs as a .zip file to download, rather than JSON.

The Display Video 360 API SDF Download service will be replacing the DBM API SDF Download service. The deprecation of that service will be announced soon, and an immediate migration to the new API is advised. You can get started setting up the Display & Video 360 API here, and downloading Structured Data Files here.

More functionality will be coming to the Display & Video 360 API in the coming months, including line item management and targeting. Keep an eye out for future announcements!
