Details will vary, but they’re related to issues that prevent successful order or line item creation/update. Example:“Ad Manager was unable to reserve inventory or was unable to create or update corresponding line items for proposal. Some key-values included in targeting for proposal line items were deactivated in your network. Remove these key-values and try again.”
