Install

To install google-adwords, run

npm install google-adwords

then include in your file the following:

var ga = require('google-adwords');

API

.use(options)

This function is used to set client access information, specifically the clientID, the clientSecret and the developerToken fields. This is also used prior to each call to set the clientCustomerID and the refreshToken.

Any call to Google Adwords automatically refreshes the accessToken for the call. This may be overridden by including both the accessToken and the tokenExpires in the user setting along with the clientCustomerID and the refreshToken.

  ga.use({
    clientID: 'clientIDString',
    clientSecret: 'clientSecretString',
    developerToken: 'developerTokenString'
  });
  // Sets Client options for usage in your app.
  ga.use({
    refreshToken: 'refreshTokenString',
    clientCustomerID: 'clientCustomerIDString'
  });
  // Sets user options if you wish to refresh the token on every call.
  ga.use({
    accessToken: 'accessTokenString',
    tokenExpires: 1424716834341, // Integer: Unix Timestamp of expiration time
    refreshToken: 'refreshTokenString',
    clientCustomerID: 'clientCustomerIDString'
  });
  // Sets user options if you do not wish to refresh every call. Will refresh if expiration is hit.

.awql()

Once the appropriate access information has been set with .use(), you may use .awql() to make calls to your reports. You may do this in a number of ways: chaining, options object, or AWQL string. All options return a Bluebird promise, with .then() and .catch for successful and failing use cases, respectively.

chaining

To use .awql() chaining, simply chain additional keywords onto your query like this:

ga.awql()
  .select('Date,Clicks')
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .during('20120101,20150125')
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })

Alternatively, you can pass arrays into .select() and .during():

ga.awql()
  .select(['Date','Clicks'])
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .during(['20120101','20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })

You may also add a .where() and a .and() into the chain after .from(), allowing for drilling of information:

ga.awql()
  .select(['Date', 'Clicks'])
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .where('Clicks>100')
  .during(['20120101', '20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })
ga.awql()
  .select(['Date', 'Clicks'])
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .where('Clicks>100')
  .and('Clicks<200')
  .during(['20120101', '20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })

You can chain additional `.and() functions after the first:

ga.awql()
  .select(['Date', 'Clicks'])
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .where('Clicks>100')
  .and('Clicks<200')
  .and('Clicks!=110')
  .during(['20120101', '20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })

Alternatively, you can pass an array of .and() statements into the first:

ga.awql()
  .select(['Date', 'Clicks'])
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .where('Clicks>100')
  .and(['Clicks<200','Clicks!=110'])
  .during(['20120101', '20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // your code here
  })

options

You can also access the reports by passing an object into .awql() as such:

var options = {
  select: ['Date', 'Clicks'],
  from: 'ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT',
  during: ['20120101', '20150125']
}
ga.awql(options).send().then(function(results) {
  expect(results).to.be.an('object');
  expect(results.report).to.be.a('string');
  expect(results.total).to.be.a('string');
  expect(results.data).to.be.an('array');
  done();
})

As with the promises above, you may pass both strings or arrays to select, and, and during.

string

Finally, you can pass your own AWQL string into .awql. Make sure there are no spaces in your where statements, as this string will replace all spaces (besides , ) with + for proper API sending.

var awqlStatement = 'SELECT Date, Clicks FROM ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT DURING 20120101, 20150125'
ga.awql(awqlStatement).send().then(function(results) {
  // your code here
});

Returns

All request return information in the following format:

{
  report:'Title of the Report',
  timeframe: 'Timeframe of the report',
  total: 'Overall total of the report',
  fieldLength: 7, // Integer: The number of fields (columns) that are being returned
  data:[] // contains objects of individual report rows returned
  auth:{ // This is the updated auth from the request. You may pipe this back in using ga.use()
    accessToken:'accessTokenString',
    tokenExpires: 1424716834341, // Integer: Unix Timestamp of expiration time
  }
}

Error Handling

All .awql() calls return two promise chains, .then() and .catch() as outlined in the Bluebird documentation. You may use .catch() to catch any issues that may have arisen in the call.

.catch()

ga.awql()
  .select(['DateRUBBISH', 'ClicksFAKE']) // selecting invalid fields
  .from('ACCOUNT_PERFORMANCE_REPORT')
  .during(['20120101', '20150125'])
  .send().then(function(results) {
    // this will not run
  })
  .catch(function(error) {
    // error handling code here
  })
