An unofficial node library for Google AdWords

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/ErikEvenson/googleads-node-lib Under development! Use with caution.

Installing the library

npm install googleads-node-lib

Getting your Google AdWords access and refresh tokens

Start by following the instructions at https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/guides/start. You will need client ID, a client secret, and an authorization code. You will get the client ID and the client secret from the Google Developers Console. To get an authorization code (filling in client_id and selecting account), open this URL in your browser:

https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?client_id=<CLIENT_ID>&response_type=code&scope=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.googleapis.com%2Fauth%2Fadwords&redirect_uri=urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob&access_type=offline&approval_prompt=auto

Use this code to get tokens (filling in your Google AdWords credentials):

curl \
  -d code=<AUTHORIZATION_CODE> \
  -d client_id=<CLIENT_ID> \
  -d client_secret=<CLIENT_SECRET> \
  -d redirect_uri=urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob \
  -d grant_type=authorization_code https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token

This yields something like:

{
  "access_token" : <ACCESS_TOKEN>,
  "token_type" : "Bearer",
  "expires_in" : 3599,
  "refresh_token" : <REFRESH_TOKEN>
}

Use the access_token to make requests. The access_token will expire. Use the refresh_token to get a new access token. The refresh_token will not expire. The refresh_token is a stored credential.

Authentication

This library's services get Google AdWords credentials from the following sources in priority order:

  • From passed in options values:
var AdWords = require('googleads-node-lib');

var Service = new AdWords.ManagedCustomerService({
  ADWORDS_CLIENT_ID: 'your client id',
  ADWORDS_CLIENT_CUSTOMER_ID: 'your client customer id',
  ADWORDS_DEVELOPER_TOKEN: 'your developer token'
  ADWORDS_REFRESH_TOKEN: 'your refresh token',
  ADWORDS_SECRET: 'your secret',
  ADWORDS_USER_AGENT: 'your user agent',
});
  • Via environment variables which are either present or loaded via a .env file. An example .env file is provided in .env-example.

Failure to provide credentials will cause the library to throw a configuration error.

Using the library

Here are some examples. Documentation should improve, but in the mean time, the best places to look are the integration tests and the gulp tasks.

AdGroupService

Setting up the AdGroupService:

var AdWords = require('googleads-node-lib');
var service = new AdWords.AdGroupService();
var clientCustomerId = 'the client customer ID you are interested in';

Getting AdGroups:

var selector = new AdWords.Selector.model({
  fields: service.selectable,
  ordering: [{field: 'Name', sortOrder: 'ASCENDING'}],
  paging: {startIndex: 0, numberResults: 100}
});

service.get(clientCustomerId, selector, function(err, results) {
  if (err) console.log(err);
  else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
});

AccountLabelService

Setting up the AccountLabelService:

var AdWords = require('googleads-node-lib');
var service = new AdWords.AccountLabelService();
var clientCustomerId = 'the client customer ID you are interested in';

Getting account labels:

var selector = new AdWords.Selector.model({
  fields: service.selectable,
  ordering: [{field: 'Name', sortOrder: 'ASCENDING'}],
  paging: {startIndex: 0, numberResults: 100}
});

service.get(clientCustomerId, selector, function(err, results) {
  if (err) console.log(err);
  else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
});

Adding an account label:

var operand = new service.Model({
  name: 'the name of the account label'
});

service.mutateAdd(
  clientCustomerId,
  operand,
  function(err, results) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
  }
);

Removing an account label:

var operand = new service.Model({
  id: 'the id of the account label'
});

service.mutateRemove(
  clientCustomerId,
  operand,
  function(err, results) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
  }
);

Changing the name of an account label:

var operand = new service.Model({
  id: 'the id of the account label',
  name: 'the new name of the account label'
});

service.mutateSet(
  clientCustomerId,
  operand,
  function(err, results) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
  }
);

CampaignService

Setting up the CampaignService:

var AdWords = require('googleads-node-lib');
var service = new AdWords.CampaignService();
var clientCustomerId = 'the client customer ID you are interested in';

Getting your campaigns:

var selector = new AdWords.Selector.model({
  dateRange: {min: '19700101', max: '20380101'},
  fields: service.selectable,
  ordering: [{field: 'Name', sortOrder: 'ASCENDING'}],
  paging: {startIndex: 0, numberResults: 100},
  predicates: []
});

service.get(clientCustomerId, selector, function(err, results) {
  if (err) console.log(err);
  else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
});

ManagedCustomerService

Setting up the ManagedCustomerService:

var AdWords = require('googleads-node-lib');
var service = new AdWords.ManagedCustomerService();
var clientCustomerId = 'the client customer ID you are interested in';

Getting your managed customers:

var selector = new AdWords.Selector.model({
  dateRange: {min: '19700101', max: '20380101'},
  fields: service.selectable,
  ordering: [{field: 'Name', sortOrder: 'ASCENDING'}],
  paging: {startIndex: 0, numberResults: 100},
  predicates: []
});

service.get(clientCustomerId, selector, function(err, results) {
  if (err) console.log(err);
  else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
});

Adding a managed customer:

var operand = new service.Model({
  name: 'the name of the customer',
  currencyCode: 'USD',
  dateTimeZone: 'America/Chicago'
});

service.mutateAdd(
  clientCustomerId,
  operand,
  function(err, results) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
  }
);

Hiding a managed customer:

var operand = new service.ManagedCustomerLink({
  clientCustomerId: clientCustomerId,
  isHidden: true,
  managerCustomerId: managerCustomerId
});

service.mutateLinkSet(
  clientCustomerId,
  operand,
  function(err, results) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else console.log(JSON.stringify(results, null, 2));
    cb(err);
  }
);
