While most services provide synchronous APIs, requiring you to make a request
and then wait for a response,
provides a way to perform batches of operations on multiple services without
synchronously waiting for the operations to complete.
Unlike service-specific mutate operations, a single job in
BatchJobService can operate against a mixed
collection of campaigns, ad groups, ads, criteria, labels, and feed items.
Submitted jobs run in parallel, and
BatchJobService automatically retries operations
that fail due to transient errors such as rate limit errors. The Google Ads API still
counts each operation towards your
daily operation limit following the
API operations counting instructions.
BatchJobService supports all of the operations listed in
MutateOperation, with a few important
Since the Google Ads API executes all operations in a job with partial failure enabled, if a job is cancelled or individual operations fail, operations that succeeded will not be rolled back.
The following operations in
MutateOperation must be
atomic, and thus, don't support partial failure
and are not supported within batch jobs. Avoid adding them to your jobs, set
false in your requests, and use the
mutate method in
