The Lyftron Provider for Google Ads Manager models Google Ads Manager objects as relational tables and views. A Google Ads Manager object has relationships to other objects; in the tables, these relationships are expressed through foreign keys. The following sections show the available API objects and provide more information on executing SQL to Google Ads Manager APIs.
Schemas for most database objects are defined in simple, text-based configuration files. However, schemas for Saved Query Reports are dynamically obtained.
Accessing Saved Query Reports
When you connect, the provider retrieves the list of reports and the metadata for the tables by calling the appropriate web services. Any changes you make to the Saved Query Reports, such as adding a new report, adding new fields, or changing the data type of a field, will immediately be reflected when you connect using the provider.
The provider offloads as much of the SELECT statement processing as possible to the Google Ads Manager APIs and then processes the rest of the query in memory. See SupportEnhancedSQL for more information on how the provider circumvents API limitations with in-memory client-side processing.
Inserting custom fields
When executing an Insert statement and you've specified a custom field, the value of the custom field must be an aggregate. The aggregate must contain the ID of the custom field and the value that you want to give it. You can get custom fields' IDs by querying CustomFields table. Currently, only custom fields of type "Text" are supported for Insert. Other types are not insertable/updatable.
Below is an example of inserting into Orders table while specifying the "MyOwnCustomField" custom field. The ID of the custom field is 1238676 and its value is "Sample text here".
