PollGenerateReport Service Operation - Reporting

Gets the status of a report request.


You must use the same user credentials for the SubmitGenerateReport and PollGenerateReport. For more information, see Request and Download a Report.

Request Elements

The PollGenerateReportRequest 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
ReportRequestId The identifier of the report request. The SubmitGenerateReport operation returns the identifier. string

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.
