This field will become mutable for all customers at a future date. We will post a notification on the Google Ads Developer blog when developers can update this field.
  • Updated Maximize_conversions.target_cpa to support an optional Target CPA setting on the Maximize Conversions portfolio and standard bidding strategies for Search campaigns. This field will become mutable for all customers at a future date. We will post a notification on the Google Ads Developer blog when developers can update this field.
  • Added support for creating and managing cross-account bidding strategies in manager accounts, and the ability to attach them to campaigns in customer accounts:
    • Added BiddingStrategy.currency_code for bidding strategies in manager customers, which can be set on creation and defaults to the manager customer’s currency. For serving customers, this field cannot be set; all strategies in a serving customer implicitly use the serving customer’s currency.

    • Added AccessibleBiddingStrategyService to read accessible bidding strategies.
    • Added Campaign.accessible_bidding_strategy for retrieving the fields of the portfolio bidding strategy identified by bidding_strategy.When a campaign uses a cross-account bidding strategy, this will be a subset of the properties normally defined for a bidding strategy, since certain properties are only accessible by a bidding strategy’s owner.

CampaignError.NOT_COMPATIBLE_WITH_VIEW_THROUGH_CONVERSION_OPTIMIZATION. Reports incompatibilities with view through conversions setup.
