UpdateExperiments Service Operation - Campaign Management

Updates the specified experiments.

Note

Experiments are only available for Search campaigns. If the campaign uses a shared budget, then you cannot use it as the base campaign for an experiment.

Request Elements

The UpdateExperimentsRequest object defines the body and header elements of the service operation request. The elements must be in the same order as shown in the Request SOAP.

Note

Unless otherwise noted below, all request elements are required.

Request Body Elements

Element Description Data Type
Experiments An array of Experiment objects to update within the account.

You can update a maximum of 100 experiments in a single call.

The account is determined by the required CustomerAccountId header element.
Experiment array

Request Header Elements

Element Description Data Type
AuthenticationToken The OAuth access token that represents a Microsoft Account user who has permissions to Microsoft Advertising accounts. string
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 UpdateExperimentsResponse 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
PartialErrors An array of BatchError objects that contain details for any request items that were not successful.

The list of errors do not correspond directly to the list of items in the request. The list can be empty if there were no errors, or can include one or more error objects corresponding to each unsuccessful list item in the request.
BatchError array

Response Header Elements

Element Description Data Type
TrackingId The identifier of the log entry that contains the details of the API call. string
