Apple Search Ads

Last updated on Dec 07, 2022

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.

For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, you are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery.

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.
