When creating a connector, now you can select specific manager accounts (former sub-MCC accounts) to sync. Fivetran will automatically find and sync clients of these manager accounts. Read more about sync modes in our Google Ads Setup Guide.
You can now set the conversion window size for your Google Ads connector from your Fivetran dashboard and via the REST API. You can either set it manually or let Fivetran detect it automatically. Read more about setting your conversion window size from the dashboard and via the API.
We now add a fivetran_synced column while syncing empty tables and columns from the source.
You can now configure your Google Ads connector using the Fivetran REST API. This feature is in BETA and available only for Standard and Enterprise accounts.
We now force the creation of schemas even if they contain no data. This is especially helpful for Looker users, since Looker's pre-built SQL queries fail if all tables and columns in a schema are not present. Previously, we did not create schemas when they contained no data.
We now sync default empty
--values to your destination as
NULLvalues to keep column types consistent.
You can now select how many months of reporting data you'd like to include in your initial sync. Choose from the following options:
- 3 months
- 6 months
- 12 months (default)
- 24 months
- All time
We are removing the
AveragePosition field from all of our predefined reports, because Google will sunset the average position metric on September 30, 2019. See Ads Developer Blog: Sunset of the Average Position Metric.
Your own reports will remain intact, but starting on September 29, 2019, we will ignore the
AveragePosition field and log a warning. We recommend that you remove the
AveragePosition field from any of your custom reports and use top and absolute top metrics instead. See Ads Developer Blog: Top and Absolute Top metrics.
Any old data will remain as is and the
average_position column will stay in your tables. If you want to remove it completely, you'll have to drop the corresponding tables and run a historical re-sync.
We have updated the Google Ads connector setup form. You can only add report fields that are compatible with each other. You no longer need to refer to Google Ads’ documentation to identify conflicting fields.
We have removed support for the
CAMPAIGN_CRITERIA_REPORT because it does not contain a
date field, which we require for incremental updates.
- We upgraded our connector from AdWords API v201806 to v201809 and handled deprecation.
- Renamed the report
- Read more about the deprecations and changes in Google's AdWords API documentation.
In all the report tables, the primary key
_fivetran_id now contains
hash id instead of
row index to ensure each row has a unique ID.
Since acquiring DoubleClick, Google has re-branded all DoubleClick sources. We have renamed the DoubleClick connectors as follows:
- DoubleClick Campaign Manager is now named Campaign Manager.
- DoubleClick for Publishers is now named Google Ad Manager.
- Adwords is now named Google Ads.
Customer IDs will now be included in the Specific Accounts section of the Fivetran setup form.
We have upgraded the Adwords API from v201710 to v201806 and handled deprecated fields.
bidtypefield has been deprecated.
shopping_universal_adsfield has been renamed
For additional details, see Adwords' API deprecation schedule.
We no longer support the
LABEL_REPORT report because it does not support date fields.
CLICK_PERFORMANCE_REPORT table is now limited to fetching 90 days of data, which is AdWords' maximum retention.
