Authenticating Google Search Ads in Savant

Step 1: Create a Google Project A Google project acts as a container for your Google Cloud resources. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Google API Console.

  2. Click on "Create Project."

  3. Enter a name or keep the generated suggestion.

  4. Confirm or modify any other fields as needed.

  5. Click "Create."

Step 2: Generate OAuth2 Credentials The Search Ads 360 Reporting API uses OAuth 2.0 for authentication and authorization. OAuth credentials help identify your app to Google and allow token generation for managing Search Ads 360 users. Here's how to create OAuth 2.0 credentials:

  1. Visit the Credentials page.

  2. Click "Create credentials" > "OAuth client ID."

  3. Select your application type.

  4. Fill out the form and click "Create."

Step 3: Activate Search Ads 360 Reporting API Before using the API, you need to enable the Search Ads 360 Reporting API for your project:

  1. Open the API Library in the Google API Console.

  2. If prompted, select an existing project or create a new one.

  3. Find the API or use search to locate it.

  4. Click on the API and then click the "Enable" button.

  5. If asked, set up billing and accept the API's Terms of Service.

Step 4: Optional - Enable Billing While using the Search Ads 360 Reporting API in Google Cloud is free, there's a quota for the number of free Cloud projects per account. If you need more, consider creating a new Google account. Here's how to enable billing for your project:

  1. Visit the Billing page.

  2. If you don't have an active billing account, create one by clicking "Add billing account" and following the instructions.

Step 5: Set Up Your Project's Consent Screen Your project's consent screen is essential for user interactions. Follow these steps to enable it:

  1. Open the Consent Screen page in the Google API Console.

  2. Choose a project or create a new one.

  3. Fill in the form details and click "Save."

Step 6: Manage Redirect URIs For a given OAuth 2.0 credential, you might need to create, view, or edit redirect URIs. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Credentials page.

  2. If you don't have OAuth 2.0 client IDs, create one by clicking "Create credentials."

  3. In the OAuth 2.0 client IDs section, click on the desired credential.

  4. View or edit the redirect URIs as needed.

Remember to replace CUSTOMER_ID and any other variables with your actual values. Following these steps will ensure proper authentication for using the Search Ads 360 Reporting API with clarity and ease.
