Shared Negative Keyword Record - Bulk

Defines a negative keyword that is shared in a negative keyword list and can be downloaded and uploaded in a bulk file.

You can download all Shared Negative Keyword records in the account by including the DownloadEntity value of SharedNegativeKeywords 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 negative keyword to a negative keyword list given a valid negative keyword list ID (Parent Id).

Type,Status,Id,Parent Id,Campaign,Ad Group,Client Id,Modified Time,Keyword,Match Type,Name
Format Version,,,,,,,,,,6.0
Shared Negative Keyword,Active,,-19,,,ClientIdGoesHere,,shoes,Exact,

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 BulkSharedNegativeKeyword 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 BulkSharedNegativeKeyword
var bulkSharedNegativeKeyword = new BulkSharedNegativeKeyword
{
    // 'Client Id' column header in the Bulk file
    ClientId = "ClientIdGoesHere",

    // Map properties in the Bulk file to the 
    // NegativeKeyword object of the Campaign Management service.
    NegativeKeyword = new NegativeKeyword
    {
        // 'Id' column header in the Bulk file
        Id = null,
        // 'Match Type' column header in the Bulk file
        MatchType = MatchType.Exact,
        // 'Text' column header in the Bulk file
        Text = "shoes"
    },

    // 'Parent Id' column header in the Bulk file
    NegativeKeywordListId = negativeKeywordListIdKey,

    // 'Status' column header in the Bulk file
    Status = Status.Active
};

uploadEntities.Add(bulkSharedNegativeKeyword);

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

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

For a Shared Negative Keyword record, the following attribute fields are available in the Bulk File Schema.

Client Id

Used to associate records in the bulk upload file with records in the results file. The value of this field is not used or stored by the server; it is simply copied from the uploaded record to the corresponding result record. It may be any valid string to up 100 in length.

Add: Optional
Update: Not applicable. A negative keyword can be added and deleted, but cannot be updated.
Delete: Read-only

Id

The system generated identifier of the negative keyword.

Add: Read-only
Update: Not applicable. A negative keyword can be added and deleted, but cannot be updated.
Delete: Read-only and Required

Keyword

The negative keyword text.

The text can contain a maximum of 100 characters.

Add: Required
Update: Not applicable. A negative keyword can be added and deleted, but cannot be updated.

The supported match type values for a negative keyword are Phrase and Exact.

Modified Time

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

This is recommended if you are adding new negative keywords to a new negative keyword list in the same Bulk file. For more information, see Bulk File Schema Reference Keys.
