New validation for line items in Display & Video 360 API

Beginning in May 2021, the Display & Video 360 API will start enforcing new validation when creating or updating line item resources.

This validation will require all Floodlight activity configurations in a line item to use the same lookback windows. All TrackingFloodlightActivityConfig objects assigned to conversionCounting.floodlightActivityConfigs in a line item must have the same postClickLookbackWindowDays value and the same postViewLookbackWindowDays value. The values of the two lookback window types do not have to be the same.

This validation will be enforced when creating new line items or updating the conversionCounting.floodlightActivityConfigs field of an existing line item. 
Requests that do not comply will return one of two errors, depending on the invalid field: “Floodlight click windows must be the same” or “Floodlight view windows must be the same.”

Once this validation is in effect, you will still be able to retrieve and update unrelated fields of line items that do not comply with this rule.

If you run into issues or have questions regarding this new validation, please contact us using our support contact form.

DoubleClick Bid Manager API upgrading authorization scope to "sensitive"

On October 1, 2020, we are upgrading the classification of the authorization scope used for the DoubleClick Bid Manager API ( https://www.googleapis.com/auth/doubleclickbidmanager ) to “sensitive”. This upgrade is taking place to better secure the DBM API and the data retrieved from it.

Starting on October 1st, all unverified apps that are using the DBM API for the first time will encounter an “unverified app screen” upon attempted authentication. This screen can be removed by submitting your app to our verification process. This process usually takes about 3 to 5 business days. Information on how this process fits in the larger task of authorizing requests can be found in our guide.

Existing apps that began using the DBM API scope before October 1st will not see the “unverified app screen” and will not immediately need to go through the verification process. However, all apps accessing sensitive scopes will require explicit verification before the end of 2021. In anticipation of this requirement, it is recommended that existing apps complete the verification process at their earliest convenience.

If you run into issues or need help with this process, please contact us using our support contact form.
