Responsive Ad Record - Bulk

Defines a responsive ad that can be downloaded and uploaded in a bulk file.

Responsive ads automatically adjust to accommodate the sizes and shapes of audience ad formats. These ads work best with informative text rather than calls to action.

Note

Not everyone is enabled for Audience campaigns in the Microsoft Audience Network yet. If you don't, don't worry. It's coming soon.

Note

Duplicate responsive ads are allowed in the same ad group.

You can download all Responsive Ad records in the account by including the DownloadEntity value of ResponsiveAds 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 responsive ad 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 BulkResponsiveAd object, instead of calling the service operations directly and writing custom code to parse each field in the bulk file.

Add: Optional
Update: Optional
Delete: Read-only

Custom Parameter

Your custom collection of key and value parameters for URL tracking.

In a bulk file, the list of custom parameters are formatted as follows.

  • Format each custom parameter pair as Key=Value, for example {_promoCode}=PROMO1.

  • Microsoft Advertising will accept the first 8 custom parameter key and value pairs that you include, and if you include more than 8 custom parameters an error will be returned. Each key and value pair are delimited by a semicolon and space ("; "), for example {_promoCode}=PROMO1; {_season}=summer.

  • A Key cannot contain a semicolon. If a Value contains a semicolon it must be escaped as ';'. Additionally if the Value contains a backslash it must also be escaped as '\'.

  • The Key cannot exceed 16 UTF-8 bytes, and the Value cannot exceed 250 UTF-8 bytes. The Key is required and the Value is optional. The maximum size of the Key does not include the braces and underscore i.e., '{', '_', and '}'.

    Note

    With the Bulk service the Key must be formatted with surrounding braces and a leading underscore, for example if the Key is promoCode, it must be formatted as {_promoCode}. With the Campaign Management service you cannot specify the surrounding braces and underscore.

Add: Optional
Update: Optional. If no value is set for the update, this setting is not changed. To remove all custom parameters, set this field to delete_value. The delete_value keyword removes the previous setting. To remove a subset of custom parameters, specify the custom parameters that you want to keep and omit any that you do not want to keep. The new set of custom parameters will replace any previous custom parameter set.

Final Url

The landing page URL.

The domain portion of the URL in combination with the path 1 and path 2 strings cannot exceed 67 characters.

The following validation rules apply to Final URLs and Final Mobile URLs.

  • The length of the URL is limited to 2,048 characters. The HTTP or HTTPS protocol string does count towards the 2,048 character limit.

  • You may specify up to 10 items for both Final URLs and Final Mobile URLs; however, only the first item in each list is used for delivery. The service allows up to 10 for potential forward compatibility.

  • Each URL is delimited by a semicolon and space ("; ").

  • Usage of '{' and '}' is only allowed to delineate tags, for example "{lpurl}".

  • Each URL must be a well-formed URL starting with either http:// or https://.

  • If you specify Final Mobile URLs, you must also specify Final Url.

Also note that if the Tracking Template or Custom Parameter fields are set, then at least one Final URL is required.

Note

This URL is used only if the keyword does not specify a final URL.

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

Headline

This is one of two possible headlines that could appear in your audience ads.

Because audience ads are responsive, we require multiple headlines so they can flexibly serve across a variety of publishers and placements.

The length of the string is limited to 25 characters.

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

Final Url Suffix

The final URL suffix can include tracking parameters that will be appended to the end of your landing page URL. We recommend placing tracking parameters that your landing page requires in a final URL suffix so that your customers are always sent to your landing page. For more details and validation rules see Final URL Suffix in the technical guides.

Add: Optional
Update: Optional. If no value is set for the update, this setting is not changed. If you set this field to the delete_value string, the prior setting is removed.
Delete: Read-only

Id

The system generated identifier of the ad.

Add: Optional. You must either leave this field empty, or specify a negative identifier. A negative identifier set for the ad can then be referenced in the Parent Id field of dependent record types such as Responsive Ad Label. This is recommended if you are adding new ads and new dependent records in the same Bulk file. For more information, see Bulk File Schema Reference Keys.
Update: Read-only and Required
Delete: Read-only and Required

Images

Because audience ads are responsive, you can create multiple image assets with different sizes and aspect ratios so they can flexibly display across a variety of publishers and placements.

You are only required to provide a landscape image asset i.e., this field must contain one image asset with subType set to LandscapeImageMedia. The recommended dimensions for the LandscapeImageMedia are 1200 width x 628 height. Optionally you can include additional asset links, i.e., one image asset for each supported sub type. For any image asset sub types that you do not explicitly set, Microsoft Advertising will automatically create image asset links by cropping the LandscapeImageMedia.

Note

If this field is set (not empty), then Landscape Image Media Id and Square Image Media Id are both ignored.

The image assets are represented in the bulk file as a JSON string. Seven images are included in the example JSON below, and only the LandscapeImageMedia subType is not cropped. The id is a property of the asset, whereas the cropHeight, cropWidth, cropX, cropY, and subType are properties of the asset link i.e., the relationship between the asset and the ad. For more details see cropHeight, cropWidth, cropX, cropY, id, and subType below.

[{

	"cropWidth": 1080,
	"cropHeight": 628
}]

Note

In the comma separated bulk file you'll need to surround the list of asset links, each attribute key, and each attribute string value with an extra set of double quotes e.g., the above JSON string would be written as "[{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""LandscapeImageMedia""},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""SquareImageMedia"",""cropX"":286,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":628,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia169X100"",""cropX"":70,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":1061,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia93X100"",""cropX"":308,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":584,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia15X10"",""cropX"":129,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":942,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia155X100"",""cropX"":114,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":973,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia133X100"",""cropX"":183,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":835,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia178X100"",""cropX"":41,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":1118,""cropHeight"":628},{""id"":1234567890000,""subType"":""ImageMedia172X100"",""cropX"":60,""cropY"":0,""cropWidth"":1080,""cropHeight"":628}]".

Given the upload response JSON example above, please take note of the following:

  • The same image asset identifier (e.g., 1234567890000) is used for all auto-generated image asset sub types. Whether or not you let Microsoft Advertising automatically generate the cropped images, the Id does not need to be unique among the image assets linked to the same ad.
  • Because the ad in this example was created without crop settings for the LandscapeImageMedia image asset sub type, all image assets are cropped except for the original landscape image.
  • Whether or not the landscape image has its own crop settings, Microsoft Advertising uses the true height of the landscape image for all of the default crop settings. In this example the crop height for all system generated image assets is 628, and we can infer that the landscape image (LandscapeImageMedia sub type) with 1.91:1 aspect ratio has width and height of 1200x628. Even if the landscape image asset link had been created with crop settings e.g., 703x368, the crop settings of the auto-generated image assets are based on the full dimensions of the landscape image (again that would be 1200x628 in this example).
  • Although in Bing Ads API version 12 you could use the Landscape Image Media Id and Square Image Media Id, these fields are deprecated and will be removed in a future version. You have more flexibility and control of cropped images via the Images field.

cropHeight

The number of pixels to use from the image asset source, starting from the cropY position and moving upwards.

cropWidth

The number of pixels to use from the image asset source, starting from the cropX position and moving to the right.

cropX

Starting from the lower left corner of image asset source, this is the number of pixels to skip to the right on the x-axis before applying the cropWidth.

cropY

Starting from the lower left corner of image asset source, this is the number of pixels to skip upwards on the y-axis before applying the cropHeight.

id

The id attribute is a unique Microsoft Advertising identifier for the asset in a Microsoft Advertising account.

The same image asset identifier can be used multiple times in the same ad for different aspect ratios, and can also be used by multiple ads in the same Microsoft Advertising account. The identifier of image asset with SubType set to LandscapeImageMedia is used for all auto-generated image asset sub types within the same ad. Whether or not you let Microsoft Advertising automatically generate the cropped images, the Id does not need to be unique among the image assets linked to the same ad.

You can create media for responsive ads via the AddMedia service operation. Then you can use the returned media identifier as the image asset ID. The aspect ratio of the image that you added must be supported for the image asset subType.

subType

The subType attribute represents the aspect ratio for this image asset.

The aspect ratio for the sub type must match the effective image asset dimensions. If cropHeight and cropWidth are not used then the aspect ratio for the sub type must match the aspect ratio of the stored image media. If cropHeight and cropWidth are used then the true aspect ratio of the media that is stored in the account level media library can differ, so long as cropHeight and cropWidth result in the correct aspect ratio. In either case the true aspect ratio of the media that is stored in the account level media library will remain unchanged.

The possible sub type values include LandscapeImageMedia, SquareImageMedia, ImageMedia169X100, ImageMedia93X100, ImageMedia15X10, ImageMedia155X100, ImageMedia133X100, ImageMedia178X100, and ImageMedia172X100. New sub types might be added in the future, so you should not take any dependency on a fixed set of values.

Sub Type Minimum dimensions in pixels
LandscapeImageMedia 703 width x 368 height
Aspect radio 1.91:1
SquareImageMedia 300 width x 300 height
Aspect radio 1:1
ImageMedia169X100 622 width x 368 height
Aspect radio 1.69:1
ImageMedia93X100 311 width x 333 height
Aspect radio 0.93:1
ImageMedia15X10 300 width x 200 height
Aspect radio 1.5:1
ImageMedia155X100 300 width x 194 height
Aspect radio 1.55:1
ImageMedia133X100 100 width x 75 height
Aspect radio 1.33:1
ImageMedia178X100 624 width x 350 height
Aspect radio 1.78:1
ImageMedia172X100 300 width x 174 height
Aspect radio 1.72:1

Note

Media for responsive ads are provisioned via the Image object using the AddMedia operation. You can use the GIF, JPEG, or PNG MIME types. Images with animation are not supported. Although you can only add media with a few aspect ratios via the AddMedia operation, you can use crop settings i.e., cropHeight, cropWidth, cropX, and cropY to determine the effective aspect ratio. The aspect ratio of the stored image would be unchanged in the account level media library.

The maximum file size is 5 MB. The maximum width and height in pixels are 2592 and 2048 independently, and you must still maintain one of the supported aspect ratios. For example if the image asset with sub type LandscapeImageMedia is 2592 in width, then the height must be 1357.

Add: Required if Landscape Image Media Id is empty. Only the id and subType are required for each asset link.
Update: Optional. To retain all of the existing asset links, set or leave this field empty. If you set this field, any images that were previously linked to this ad will be replaced. If you set this field, only the id and subType are required for each asset link.
Delete: Read-only

Landscape Image Media Id

The identifier of the image asset used for landscape images with 1.91:1 aspect ratio that could appear in your audience ads.

The aspect ratio of the stored image media can vary, so long as the image asset crop settings result in the supported aspect ratio for this field. To confirm the effective aspect ratio with crop settings, use the Images field.

Note

Although in Bing Ads API version 12 you can use the Landscape Image Media Id and SquareImageMediaId, these fields are deprecated and will be removed in a future version. You have more flexibility and control of cropped images via the Images field.

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

Landscape Logo Media Id

  • You may specify up to 10 items for both Final URLs and Final Mobile URLs; however, only the first item in each list is used for delivery. The service allows up to 10 for potential forward compatibility.

  • Each URL is delimited by a semicolon and space ("; ").

  • Usage of '{' and '}' is only allowed to delineate tags, for example "{lpurl}".

  • Each URL must be a well-formed URL starting with either http:// or https://.

  • If you specify Final Mobile URLs, you must also specify Final Url.

Note

This URL is used only if the keyword does not specify a Mobile Final Url.

Add: Optional
Update: Optional. If no value is set for the update, this setting is not changed. If you set this field to the delete_value string, the prior setting is removed.
Delete: Read-only

Modified Time

The date and time that the entity was last updated. The value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Note

Square Image Media Id

The identifier of the image asset used for square images with 1:1 aspect ratio that could appear in your audience ads.

The aspect ratio of the stored image media can vary, so long as the image asset crop settings result in the supported aspect ratio for this field. To confirm the effective aspect ratio with crop settings, use the Images field.

Note

Although in Bing Ads API version 12 you can use the Landscape Image Media Id and SquareImageMediaId, these fields are deprecated and will be removed in a future version. You have more flexibility and control of cropped images via the Images field.

You have more character space to work with in the ad text than in the headline. So once the imagery and headline have a potential customer's attention, the ad text needs to convince them to click it. What sets your product or service apart?

The text must contain at least one word.

The length of the string is limited to 90 characters.

The text cannot contain the newline (\n) character.

Tracking Template

The tracking template to use as a default for the URL specified with FinalUrls.

The following validation rules apply to tracking templates. For more details about supported templates and parameters, see the Microsoft Advertising help article What tracking or URL parameters can I use?

  • Tracking templates defined for lower level entities e.g. ads override those set for higher level entities e.g. campaign. For more information, see Entity Limits.

  • The length of the tracking template is limited to 2,048 characters. The HTTP or HTTPS protocol string does count towards the 2,048 character limit.

  • The tracking template must be a well-formed URL beginning with one of the following: http://, https://, {lpurl}, or {unescapedlpurl}.

  • Microsoft Advertising does not validate whether custom parameters exist. If you use custom parameters in your tracking template and they do not exist, then the landing page URL will include the key and value placeholders of your custom parameters without substitution. For example, if your tracking template is https://tracker.example.com/?season={_season}&promocode={_promocode}&u={lpurl}, and neither {_season} or {_promocode} are defined at the campaign, ad group, criterion, keyword, or ad level, then the landing page URL will be the same.
