Engine ID

The identifier an engine creates and assigns to an item. The value in this column depends on the report you're viewing. For example on the Keywords tab, this column displays each keyword's engine ID. On the Ad groups tab, the column displays each ad group's engine ID.

You can also view engine IDs in the following columns:

Note that DoubleClick Search (DS) generates its own ID for each item. If you use bulksheets to edit or add campaigns and other items in DS, use the DS ID, not the engine's ID.
