The Lyftron Provider for Google Campaign Manager models Google Campaign Manager entities in relational Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures. The provided tables will give you an overview of your account information and the reports available for DoubleClick Campaign Manager queries.
API limitations and requirements are documented in this section.
Create Additional Schemas
The CreateCustomSchema stored procedure can be used to easily generate new schema files for a given report. This procedure takes the TableName and a report ID and builds a schema file that can be read by the provider.
If the Location connection property is set, the file will be output to that folder. Otherwise, the OutputFolder input can be used to specify an output folder. To begin querying these new files, simply set the Location connection property to the folder containing these new schema files.
Views are tables that cannot be modified. Typically, data that are read-only and cannot be updated are shown as views.
Views are composed of columns and pseudo columns. Views are similar to tables in the way that data is represented; however, views do not support updates. Entities that are represented as views are typically read-only entities.
Queries can be executed against a view as if it were a normal table, and the data that comes back is similar in that regard.

|Files||Views||Lists all DoubleClick Campaign Manager files for the user.|
