CustomerAccountId The identifier of the account that owns the entities in the request. This header element must have the same value as the AccountId body element when both are required. This element is required for most service operations, and as a best practice you should always set it. string
CustomerId The identifier of the customer that contains and owns the account. If you manage an account of another customer, you should use that customer ID instead of your own customer ID. This element is required for most service operations, and as a best practice you should always set it. string
DeveloperToken The developer token used to access the Bing Ads API. string
Password This element is reserved for internal use and will be removed from a future version of the API. You must use the AuthenticationToken element to set user credentials. string
UserName This element is reserved for internal use and will be removed from a future version of the API. You must use the AuthenticationToken element to set user credentials. string

Response Elements

The GetGeoLocationsFileUrlResponse object defines the body and header elements of the service operation response. The elements are returned in the same order as shown in the Response SOAP.

Response Body Elements

Element Description Data Type
FileUrl The file URL that you can use to download the geographical location data for the version, language, and locale that you requested.

Before you download the file, check whether the date and time of the LastModifiedTimeUtc element is later than the date and time of your previous download. You should only download the file if necessary.
string
FileUrlExpiryTimeUtc The date and time that the provided file URL will expire.

If you do not download the file prior to the expiration time, then you can call the operation again to request a new file URL. You might observe that the URL is set to expire 15 minutes from the time this operation completes; however, you should not depend on a fixed duration. Future calls to this operation might result in a shorter or longer expiration time.

The value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The date and time value reflects the date and time at the server, not the client. For information about the format of the date and time, see the dateTime entry in Primitive XML Data Types.
dateTime
LastModifiedTimeUtc The date and time that the geographical location data for the specified version, language, and locale was last updated.

As a best practice you should store this date and time, and going forward only download the file if this value is updated to a later date and time.

The value is in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The date and time value reflects the date and time at the server, not the client. For information about the format of the date and time, see the dateTime entry in Primitive XML Data Types.
