API Version 6 Now Available

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

We are happy to announce the release of the AdWords API Version 6 (V6).

V6 introduces three notable changes to the AdWords API: quota reporting by account, weekly aggregate reporting, and editable campaign start dates. This announcement highlights only the major components of the V6 release. For complete details of all V6 changes, please see our Release Notes.


    Quota Reporting by Account: You can now retrieve statistics that detail quota usage by client acted upon.

    Weekly Aggregate Reporting: You can now retrieve weekly statistics via the Report Center for all report job types.

    Editable Campaign Start Dates: You can now specify the Start Date of a campaign.


    In order to avoid requiring code changes during the busy holiday season, we are extending the standard two month sunset period to approximately four months. Therefore, V5 will be turned off on January 24, 2007. Please make sure that you upgrade to V6 before this date.

As with every new version, we strongly urge you to review the Release Notes section of the Developer’s Guide.
