We are pleased to announce the release of v201306 of the DFP API - one of our largest launches yet. It introduces many new features for creative management, forecasting, reporting, and includes a beta release of the sales management services. A detailed list of these features and what’s changed can be found on our release notes page.

Sales Management API

With the launch of v201306 also comes the release of the Sales Management beta services. Sales Management is currently being piloted by a small group of partners and we plan to extend availability throughout the year. We'd like to offer beta access to developers who plan to leverage the API to build connections to other business tools and systems.

The sales services allow you to:

As we detailed in our previous blog posts, improving the stability and feature set of the reports is a top priority. Some highlights of note for v201306:
  • Columns, dimensions, and dimension attributes will now appear in reports in the order in which they were requested. This does not affect previous versions.
  • If you have the feature enabled, you can now specify a timeZone to run the report in. Supported time zones for your network can be found using the Time_Zone table through the PublisherQueryLanguage service. Please contact your account manager for questions regarding enabling this feature.

  • More than 50 columns, dimensions, and dimension attributes have been added to bring the API closer to parity with the UI. 

To make managing non-standard creatives easier, beginning in v201306, the creative types FlashExpandableCreative, FlashPushdownCreative, FloatingFlashCreative, and TextAdCreative have been replaced with the type TemplateCreative. In addition, the TemplateCreative.destinationUrl field has been added for use with %u or %%DEST_URL%% macros. As more template types are added to DFP, our hope is that you’ll be able to take advantage of them with less code modification.
