Apple Search Ads

Last updated on Feb 27, 2024

Apple Search Ads are sponsored ads for driving awareness and downloads for apps within Apple’s App Store. This allows you to promote your applications at the top of the search results on the App Store.

You can use Hevo Pipelines to replicate your Apple Search Ads reports such as campaign reports and search term reports into the desired Destination system for scalable analysis. For this, you must authorize Hevo to access data from your Apple Search Ads account using the API keys.

You must use your Apple Search Account credentials to authenticate the account with Hevo for all Pipelines created after Release 1.87. The credentials are a combination of a public key and a private key.

Note: The certificate based authentication has been completely deprecated.


Source Considerations

  • Apple Search Ads API users can authenticate using only the API keys. Even if an existing certificate is still valid, you need to recreate the Pipeline using the API Keys. This is because Apple Search Ads has deprecated certificate based authentication.

  • For Impression Share Reports, you can generate a maximum of 10 reports per day and select a date range of up to 30 days for any time period after April 12th, 2020.


Limitations

  • None.
