Hi,

 

You can use the download tool to get it through the API. That said it is a bit difficult since the authentiction is based on oAuth. I will hopefully publish a macro within the next couple of weeks, that can do the trick

 

Best regards,

Hi Daniel,

 

Have you made any progress on making an AdWords Macro?  I am good with the oAuth portion and getting the authentication token, however, I am not able to get the download tool to work.  I don't know if it is my XML in the payload, my headers, or what.

 

Thanks,
Matt

Daniel- an AdWords API macro would ve very useful for me as well.  Was exploring the API documentation and getting ready to start testing and building, but glad I decided to check the Alteryx community to fidn that you are already working on such a thing!


Would be happy to work with you and test out anything you develop.

Gents,

 

I am very sory for the delay. Here is an example for a Adwords macro. It can indeed be more flexible, so please come with feedback for additions and wishes.

 

Best,

Daniel

Thanks @danielbrunfor posting this- I'll give it a try later this week.

 

Since you seem to be tackling all things Google API related - have you worked at all with the DoubleClick (DCM/DFA) API?  I was thinking about building a macro to call the reporting API there (https://developers.google.com/doubleclick-advertisers/v2.6/reports) but figured I should see if you've solved that already.
