Remarks

For Java and the .NET languages, do not set the Type element because the value is determined by whether you instantiate a BiddableCampaignCriterion or NegativeCampaignCriterion.

If you generate the SOAP manually, use the type attribute of the <CampaignCriterion> node as shown in the following example, to specify the type of criterion.

<CampaignCriterion i:type="BiddableCampaignCriterion" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <Id i:nil="true" />
    <Status i:nil="true" />
     . . .
</CampaignCriterion>
