Imports data from Google Ads.

Method of use

Before you can download data from Google Ads you have to give access to a Onesecondbefore account.

Another method is to organize the access yourself. Below is described how to do this.
Apply for a Developer Token of the Adwords account you would like to import data from. You also need this access if you want to mass-update the Google Ads account. You can apply for a Google Ads Developer account under: `TOOLS & SETTINGS > SETUP > API Center`. There you can apply for a Developer Token. Then you need to give your Google Account access. There are two ways to do this:

Acces with Service Account

Take the steps below to download data from Google Ads with a service account.

  1. Create a service account or re-use a service account of a Google Cloud environment.
  2. Have the service account added to the Workflows connections by a Onesecondbefore staff member
  3. If you use Google Cloud, you're done. If you use another cloud, add the connection string to conn_id
  4. Give the client_email from the Service Account `Read` access to the Google Ads account
  5. You should now be able to download data from Google Ads

Access with Delegated Account

Take the steps below to download a Google Spreadsheet with a delegated account. Please take note of the security precautions needed to secure this connection method.

  1. Take the steps 1 till 3 in the Service Account flow.
  2. Enable domain-wide delegation for the service account.
  3. Give the delegated account access to the Google Ads account
  4. You should now be able to download data from the Google Ads account
