This guide will walk you through how to set up OAuth2 for API access using your own credentials with service accounts. These steps only need to be done once, unless you revoke or delete your OAuth2 credentials.
Step 1 - Create OAuth2 credentials
Generate a service account ID and a *.JSON file by following the linked instructions, then come back to this page.
Step 2 - Add a private key JSON and an impersonated email to configuration
Set the private key JSON file path and impersonated email in your configuration.
If you're using a
google-ads.yaml file, YAML string, or
dict, add the
json_key_file_path: JSON_KEY_FILE_PATH impersonated_email: IMPERSONATED_EMAIL
If you're using environment variables, add the following to your
configuration or environment:
export GOOGLE_ADS_JSON_KEY_FILE_PATH=JSON_KEY_FILE_PATH export GOOGLE_ADS_IMPERSONATED_EMAIL=IMPERSONATED_EMAIL
