SearchCampaignChangeHistoryReportRequest Data Object - Reporting

Defines a change history report request. Use this report to discover when changes to an account were made, as well as which user made the changes.

You can request a record of changes made by user and date. For example, you can request a record of changes to campaign name, location target association, and keyword bid. You can request both the old value and new value in the report.


It can take approximately one hour from the time an entity is added, updated, or deleted for the change history to be available for reporting.

To request a report of this type, pass this object to the SubmitGenerateReport operation.

Inherited Elements

Inherited Elements from ReportRequest

The SearchCampaignChangeHistoryReportRequest object derives from the ReportRequest object, and inherits the following elements: ExcludeColumnHeaders, ExcludeReportFooter, ExcludeReportHeader, Format, FormatVersion, ReportName, ReturnOnlyCompleteData. The descriptions below are specific to SearchCampaignChangeHistoryReportRequest, and might not apply to other objects that inherit the same elements from the ReportRequest object.

Element Description Data Type
ExcludeColumnHeaders Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain header descriptions for each column. The report column header matches the requested column name e.g. Impressions and Clicks.

Set this property true if you want the report column headers excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
ExcludeReportFooter Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain footer metadata such as Microsoft copyright (@2020 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.).

Set this property true if you want the report footer metadata excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
ExcludeReportHeader Determines whether or not the downloaded report should contain header metadata such as report name, date range, and aggregation.

Set this property true if you want the report header metadata excluded from the downloaded report. The default value is false.
Format The format of the report data. For example, you can request the data in comma-separated values (Csv) format or tab-separated values (Tsv) format.

The default value is Csv.

All downloaded files are ZIP compressed.
FormatVersion Determines the format for certain fields in the downloaded report file.

The data format for certain fields can be updated within the current API version without breaking existing client applications. You can get the latest data format by setting this optional request field to 2.0. If you do not set this field, the service defaults to version 1.0.

For details about changes between format versions, see Report Format Version.
ReportName The name of the report. The name is included in the report header. If you do not specify a report name, the system generates a name in the form, ReportType-ReportDateTime.

The maximum length of the report name is 200.
ReturnOnlyCompleteData Determines whether or not the service must ensure that all the data has been processed and is available.

If set to true and if the system has not finished processing all the data based on the requested Scope and Time, the service returns error code NoCompleteDataAvaliable (2004). Otherwise by default the request can succeed, there is no indication as to whether the data is complete, and the report will contain only the data that the system has finished processing at the time of the request.

Please note that because today is still in progress and data is not complete, you cannot set this element to true if the Time period (whether custom or predefined date) includes today's date. For more information, see Time Zones in Reporting.
