Connecting to Google Ads

The ElastiCube Managerenables easy and quick access to tables contained within Google Ads. The steps below describe how to connect to this type of data source.

Note: Importing data from Google Ads is performed using the Sisense developer key and Sisense pays for the data imported from Ads. For this reason your Ads account must have access to the ‘Campaign Service’ and the user needs to have Standard Access. To check the type of access, log into your Ads account, then go to My Account > Account Access. A list of all associated campaigns and permission levels will be displayed. Increasing the permission level can only be performed by a campaign administrator using the “invite user functionality”. See Campaign Management and Users for more details. In addition, you will need an MCC account. For more information, click here.

  4. Click Connect.
