Ad Group Similar Remarketing List Association Record - Bulk

Defines an Ad Group Similar Remarketing List Association that can be uploaded and downloaded in a bulk file.

Note

Not everyone has this feature yet. If you don’t, don’t worry. It’s coming soon.

Audience targets cannot be set both campaign and ad group level. If you set any biddable campaign level audience criteria, then you cannot set any biddable ad group level audience criteria. Audience exclusions can be set at both campaign and ad group level. Microsoft Advertising applies a union of both campaign and ad group level exclusions.

You can download all Ad Group Similar Remarketing List Association records in the account by including the DownloadEntity value of AdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociations in the DownloadCampaignsByAccountIds or DownloadCampaignsByCampaignIds service request. Additionally the download request must include the EntityData scope. For more details about the Bulk service including best practices, see Bulk Download and Upload.

The following Bulk CSV example would add a new ad group similar remarketing list association if a valid Parent Id value is provided.

If you are using the Bing Ads SDKs for .NET, Java, or Python, you can save time using the BulkServiceManager to upload and download the BulkAdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociation object, instead of calling the service operations directly and writing custom code to parse each field in the bulk file.

var uploadEntities = new List<BulkEntity>();

// Map properties in the Bulk file to the BulkAdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociation
var bulkAdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociation = new BulkAdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociation
{
    // 'Ad Group' column header in the Bulk file
    AdGroupName = null,

    // Map properties in the Bulk file to the 
    // BiddableAdGroupCriterion object of the Campaign Management service.
    BiddableAdGroupCriterion = new BiddableAdGroupCriterion
    {
        // 'Parent Id' column header in the Bulk file
        AdGroupId = adGroupIdKey,
        Criterion = new AudienceCriterion
        {
            // 'Audience Id' column header in the Bulk file
            AudienceId = similarRemarketingListIdKey,
        },
        // 'Bid Adjustment' column header in the Bulk file
        CriterionBid = new BidMultiplier
        {
            Multiplier = 10
        },
        // 'Id' column header in the Bulk file
        Id = null,
        // 'Status' column header in the Bulk file
        Status = AdGroupCriterionStatus.Paused
    },
    // 'Campaign' column header in the Bulk file
    CampaignName = null,
    // 'Client Id' column header in the Bulk file
    ClientId = "ClientIdGoesHere",
    // 'Audience' column header in the Bulk file
    AudienceName = null,
};

uploadEntities.Add(bulkAdGroupSimilarRemarketingListAssociation);

var entityUploadParameters = new EntityUploadParameters
{
    Entities = uploadEntities,
    ResponseMode = ResponseMode.ErrorsAndResults,
    ResultFileDirectory = FileDirectory,
    ResultFileName = DownloadFileName,
    OverwriteResultFile = true,
};

var uploadResultEntities = (await BulkServiceManager.UploadEntitiesAsync(entityUploadParameters)).ToList();

For an Ad Group Similar Remarketing List Association record, the following attribute fields are available in the Bulk File Schema.

Ad Group

The name of the ad group that is associated with the similar remarketing list.

Add: Read-only and Required
Update: Read-only and Required
Delete: Read-only and Required

Note

For add, update, and delete, you must specify either the Parent Id or Ad Group field.

Audience

The name of the similar remarketing list.

This bulk field maps to the Audience field of the Similar Remarketing List record.

Add: Read-only and Required for some use cases. You must either specify the Audience or Audience Id field. If you are adding new ad group similar remarketing list associations with new similar remarketing lists in the same Bulk file, and if you do not set the Audience Id field, then this Audience field must be set as a logical key to the same value as the Audience field of the Similar Remarketing List record. For more information, see Bulk File Schema Reference Keys.
Update: Read-only
Delete: Read-only

Audience Id

The Microsoft Advertising identifier of the similar remarketing list associated with the ad group.

This bulk field maps to the Id field of the Similar Remarketing List record.

Add: Read-only and Required for some use cases. You must either specify the Audience or Audience Id field. If you set the Audience Id field, you must either specify an existing similar remarketing list identifier or specify a negative identifier that is equal to the Id field of the parent Similar Remarketing List record. If the Audience Id field is not set, then you must set the Audience field as a logical key to the same value as the Audience field of the Similar Remarketing List record. Any of these options are recommended if you are adding new ad group similar remarketing list associations with new similar remarketing lists in the same Bulk file. For more information, see Bulk File Schema Reference Keys.
Update: Read-only
Delete: Read-only

Bid Adjustment

The percentage you want to increase/decrease the bid amount for the similar remarketing list.

Supported values are negative ninety (-90.00) through positive nine hundred (900.00).

Important

If not specified, the default bid adjustment value is 0. The default value is subject to change.

Important

Microsoft Advertising won't apply any bid boosts until the associated similar remarketing list has at least 1,000 users. If someone qualifies to be part of multiple similar remarketing lists AND the similar remarketing lists are associated with the same ad group with different bid adjustments, the highest bid adjustment will be applied.

Add: Optional
Update: Optional. If no value is set for the update, this setting is not changed.
Delete: Read-only
