SetNegativeSitesToAdGroups Service Operation - Campaign Management

Sets the negative site URLs of the specified ad groups.

Request Elements

The SetNegativeSitesToAdGroupsRequest 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.

Request Body Elements

Element Description Data Type
AdGroupNegativeSites An array of AdGroupNegativeSites objects that identify the ad groups to update with the specified negative site URLs.

The array can contain a maximum of 5,000 objects.

The total number of URLs that you can specify per request for all ad groups combined is 30,000. For example, if you specify 2,500 URLs per ad group, the maximum number of AdGroupNegativeSites objects that you should pass is 12.
AdGroupNegativeSites array
CampaignId The identifier of the campaign that contains the ad groups. long

Request Header Elements

Element Description Data Type
AuthenticationToken The OAuth access token that represents a Microsoft Account user who has permissions to Bing Ads 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. 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. string
DeveloperToken The developer token used to access the Bing Ads API. string
Password The Bing Ads managed user's sign-in password. string
UserName The Bing Ads managed user's sign-in name. You must not set this element to a Microsoft account or email address. string


The UserName and Password header elements are deprecated. In future versions of the API, Bing Ads will transition exclusively to Microsoft Account (email address) authentication. For more information, see Authentication with OAuth. UserName and Password are still required for Bing Ads managed credentials, but they are not applicable for Microsoft account authentication. To authenticate a Microsoft account, use the AuthenticationToken] header instead of UserName and Password.


The CustomerAccountId and CustomerId are required for most service operations, and as a best practice you should always specify them in the request.

Response Elements

The SetNegativeSitesToAdGroupsResponse 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.
