Howto book an image Ad via SOAP API

HI!

I'm trying to book an image Ad.
I successfully added new LibraryImageAd and then create an order, adgroup and ad objects.
But I can't add a Placement (for AdGroup) because of guaranteed/nonGuaranteed Settings of Placement.

What shall I pass via placementTarget of PlacementGuaranteedSettings? How do I know the ID ?

Aditionnally please check that my booking scenario is right:
1. Add/Locate advertiser account
2. add ImageCreative
3. add LibraryImageAd
4. add an Order
5. add AdGroup
6. add Ad
7. add Placement <<< have a problem here
8. activate an Order


Any help is highly appreciated!
Thanks!!!

  • I've tried to invoke searchForAccount of AccountService service, but it always returns invalid data (on sandbox):
    com.yahoo.marketing.apt.AccountDescriptor
    accountID = 4768278156447053234
    accountType = Network
    companyName = Account-null4768278156447053234

    com.yahoo.marketing.apt.AccountDescriptor
    accountID = null
    accountType = Network
    companyName = Account-null-5656444650805239530

    com.yahoo.marketing.apt.AccountDescriptor
    accountID = null
    accountType = Network
    companyName = Account-null-6958264449917781382

    It is always 3 items (AccountDescriptor) with accountID is null or value, that Placement can't be referenced to.

    The error occurs at OrderService.activateOrder method invocation

    Hi Dmitry,

    The sandbox environment provides dummy results when calling AccountService.searchForAccounts.

    We are in the process of noting this in the documentation.

    Sorry for the inconvenience,

  • Thanks for info!

    But I think that it's better to have some fake network on sandbox for testing purposes.
    Today I have to make all tests on production env and increase prod server load.

  • Hi Dmitry,

    Apologies for the inconvenience when working in SBX. The lack of sample data in SBX is something that has been noted and we've passed this along to the Product team for them to consider incorporating into a future build.

    Thanks,
    APT Technical Solutions Team
