The optimized targeting launch has been postponed. Line items will continue to use the targeting expansion feature and the targetingExpansion field of the LineItem resource will continue to behave as it has previously.

Send Requests

After you've set everything up, you can send requests to the Display & Video 360 API.

The following code samples demonstrate how to send a few simple requests:

  • Create a line item.
  • Retrieve a specific line item.

For a full list of methods, see the reference documentation.

Create a resource

Here's an example of create a line item:

Java

// Create a line item object.
LineItem lineItem = new LineItem();
lineItem.setInsertionOrderId(insertion-order-id);
lineItem.setDisplayName(display-name);
lineItem.setLineItemType("LINE_ITEM_TYPE_DISPLAY_DEFAULT");
lineItem.setEntityStatus("ENTITY_STATUS_DRAFT");

// Create and set the line item flight.
LineItemFlight lineItemFlight = new LineItemFlight();
lineItemFlight
   .setFlightDateType("LINE_ITEM_FLIGHT_DATE_TYPE_INHERITED");
lineItem.setFlight(lineItemFlight);

// Create and set the line item budget.
LineItemBudget lineItemBudget = new LineItemBudget();
lineItemBudget
   .setBudgetAllocationType("LINE_ITEM_BUDGET_ALLOCATION_TYPE_FIXED");
lineItem.setBudget(lineItemBudget);

// Create and set the pacing setting.
Pacing pacing = new Pacing();
pacing.setPacingPeriod("PACING_PERIOD_DAILY");
pacing.setPacingType("PACING_TYPE_EVEN");
pacing.setDailyMaxMicros(10000L);
lineItem.setPacing(pacing);

// Create and set the frequency cap.
FrequencyCap frequencyCap = new FrequencyCap();
frequencyCap.setTimeUnit("TIME_UNIT_DAYS");
frequencyCap.setTimeUnitCount(1);
frequencyCap.setMaxImpressions(10);
lineItem.setFrequencyCap(frequencyCap);

// Create and set the partner revenue model.
PartnerRevenueModel partnerRevenueModel = new PartnerRevenueModel();
partnerRevenueModel
   .setMarkupType("PARTNER_REVENUE_MODEL_MARKUP_TYPE_CPM");
partnerRevenueModel.setMarkupAmount(10000L);
lineItem.setPartnerRevenueModel(partnerRevenueModel);

// Set the list of IDs of the creatives associated with the line item.
lineItem.setCreativeIds(creative-ids);

// Create and set the bidding strategy.
BiddingStrategy biddingStrategy = new BiddingStrategy();
biddingStrategy
   .setFixedBid(new FixedBidStrategy().setBidAmountMicros(100000L));
lineItem.setBidStrategy(biddingStrategy);

// Create the line item.
LineItem response =
   service.advertisers().lineItems().create(advertiser-id, lineItem).execute();

Python

# Create a line item object.
line_item_obj = {
    'insertionOrderId' : insertion-order-id,
    'displayName': display-name,
    'lineItemType': 'LINE_ITEM_TYPE_DISPLAY_DEFAULT',
    'entityStatus': 'ENTITY_STATUS_DRAFT',
    'flight': {
        'flightDateType': 'LINE_ITEM_FLIGHT_DATE_TYPE_INHERITED'
    },
    'budget': {
        'budgetAllocationType': 'LINE_ITEM_BUDGET_ALLOCATION_TYPE_FIXED'
    },
    'pacing': {
        'pacingPeriod': 'PACING_PERIOD_DAILY',
        'pacingType': 'PACING_TYPE_EVEN',
        'dailyMaxMicros': 10000
    },
    'frequencyCap': {
        'timeUnit': 'TIME_UNIT_DAYS',
        'timeUnitCount': 1,
        'maxImpressions': 10
    },
    'partnerRevenueModel': {
        'markupType': 'PARTNER_REVENUE_MODEL_MARKUP_TYPE_CPM',
        'markupAmount': 10000
    },
    'creativeIds': creative-ids,
    'bidStrategy': {
        'fixedBid': {
            'bidAmountMicros': 100000
        }
    }
}

# Create the line item.
lineItem = service.advertisers().lineItems().create(
    advertiserId=advertiser-id,
    body=line_item_obj
).execute()

PHP

// Create a line item object.
$lineItem = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_LineItem();
$lineItem->setInsertionOrderId(insertion-order-id);
$lineItem->setDisplayName(display-name);
$lineItem->setLineItemType('LINE_ITEM_TYPE_DISPLAY_DEFAULT');
$lineItem->setEntityStatus('ENTITY_STATUS_DRAFT');

// Create and set the line item flight.
$flight = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_LineItemFlight();
$flight->setFlightDateType('LINE_ITEM_FLIGHT_DATE_TYPE_INHERITED');
$lineItem->setFlight($flight);

// Create and set the line item budget.
$budget = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_LineItemBudget();
$budget->setBudgetAllocationType(
    'LINE_ITEM_BUDGET_ALLOCATION_TYPE_FIXED'
);
$lineItem->setBudget($budget);

// Create and set the pacing setting.
$pacing = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_Pacing();
$pacing->setPacingPeriod('PACING_PERIOD_DAILY');
$pacing->setPacingType('PACING_TYPE_EVEN');
$pacing->setDailyMaxMicros(10000);
$lineItem->setPacing($pacing);

// Create and set the frequency cap.
$frequencyCap = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_FrequencyCap();
$frequencyCap->setMaxImpressions(10);
$frequencyCap->setTimeUnit('TIME_UNIT_DAYS');
$frequencyCap->setTimeUnitCount(1);
$lineItem->setFrequencyCap($frequencyCap);

// Create and set the partner revenue model.
$partnerRevenueModel =
    new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_PartnerRevenueModel();
$partnerRevenueModel->setMarkupType(
    'PARTNER_REVENUE_MODEL_MARKUP_TYPE_CPM'
);
$partnerRevenueModel->setMarkupAmount(10000);
$lineItem->setPartnerRevenueModel($partnerRevenueModel);

// Set the list of IDs of the creatives associated with the line item.
lineItem >setCreativeIds(creative-ids);

// Create and set the bidding strategy.
$biddingStrategy =  new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_BiddingStrategy();
$fixedBidStrategy = new Google_Service_DisplayVideo_FixedBidStrategy();
$fixedBidStrategy->setBidAmountMicros(100000);
$biddingStrategy->setFixedBid($fixedBidStrategy);
$lineItem->setBidStrategy($biddingStrategy);

// Create the line item.
$result = $this->service->advertisers_lineItems->create(
    advertiser-id,
    $lineItem
);

Retrieve a specific resource

Here's an example of retrieve a specific line item:

Java

// Get the line item.
LineItem lineItem =
   service
      .advertisers()
      .lineItems()
      .get(advertiser-id, line-item-id)
      .execute();

Python

# Get the line item.
lineItem = service.advertisers().lineItems.get(
    advertiserId=advertiser-id,
    lineItemId=line-item-id
).execute()

PHP

// Get the line item.
$lineItem = $this->service->advertisers_lineItems->get(
    advertiser-id,
    line-item-id
);
