Enable API access

Integrate other applications with Ad Manager

The Ad Manager API lets developers build applications that interact directly with Ad Manager. With these applications, publishers and third parties can manage inventory, create orders, pull reports, and more. Here are some possible applications you could build with the API:

  • Create a self-service ad ordering page on your site where advertisers can create an order and upload creatives.

  • Integrate your content management system (CMS) with your inventory so updates are reflected in Ad Manager.

  • Connect your billing system with our reporting data to automate invoicing of your advertisers.
