Google Ads


You can use the Google Ads connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Google Ads and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Google Ads, you first must establish a connection to Google Ads. Follow these steps to connect Google Ads to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Google Ads row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Developer Token - Enter the developer token for your Google Ads account.

    • Client Customer Id - Enter the customer Id for your Google Ads account. To locate your customer:

      1. Open Google Ads and click the Help icon (top right of the Google Ads UI). Your Id is listed at the bottom of the Help menu.
    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme. OAuth is the default setting. For this setting, specify an OAuth client Id and an OAuth client secret.

      • OAuth Client Id - Enter the client Id that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

      • OAuth Client Secret - Enter the client secret that you were assigned when you registered your application with an OAuth authorization server.

  6. Click Connect to GoogleAds to connect to your Google Ads account.

  7. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  8. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
