What's changing?
As of today, the getServiceLinks() and mutateServiceLinks() methods on CustomerService are available to all AdWords API users. Previously, these methods were only available to whitelisted users.

Using this functionality and the Content API for Shopping, you can now fully automate the process of linking Merchant Center accounts to your AdWords account. Previously, you could send a link invitation using the Content API for Shopping, but you could not accept or reject the invitation using the AdWords API.

What do the new features do?
I thought you'd never ask! :)
  • getServiceLinks() retrieves the status of links between your AdWords account and Merchant Center accounts.
  • mutateServiceLinks() accepts or rejects links between your AdWords account and Merchant Center accounts.
