Create Conversion Actions

The best way to set up new conversion actions in the API is to use the Add Conversion Action code example in the Remarketing folder of your client library. The sample handles all the background authentication tasks for you, and walks you through creating a conversion action.

Java

private void runExample(GoogleAdsClient googleAdsClient, long customerId) {

  // Creates a ConversionAction.
  ConversionAction conversionAction =
      ConversionAction.newBuilder()
          .setName("Earth to Mars Cruises Conversion #" + System.currentTimeMillis())
          .setCategory(ConversionActionCategory.DEFAULT)
          .setType(ConversionActionType.WEBPAGE)
          .setStatus(ConversionActionStatus.ENABLED)
          .setViewThroughLookbackWindowDays(15L)
          .setValueSettings(
              ValueSettings.newBuilder()
                  .setDefaultValue(23.41)
                  .setAlwaysUseDefaultValue(true)
                  .build())
          .build();

  // Creates the operation.
  ConversionActionOperation operation =
      ConversionActionOperation.newBuilder().setCreate(conversionAction).build();

  try (ConversionActionServiceClient conversionActionServiceClient =
      googleAdsClient.getLatestVersion().createConversionActionServiceClient()) {
    MutateConversionActionsResponse response =
        conversionActionServiceClient.mutateConversionActions(
            Long.toString(customerId), Collections.singletonList(operation));
    System.out.printf("Added %d conversion actions:%n", response.getResultsCount());
    for (MutateConversionActionResult result : response.getResultsList()) {
      System.out.printf(
          "New conversion action added with resource name: '%s'%n", result.getResourceName());
    }
  }
}

C#

public void Run(GoogleAdsClient client, long customerId)
{
    // Get the ConversionActionService.
    ConversionActionServiceClient conversionActionService =
        client.GetService(Services.V6.ConversionActionService);

    // Add a conversion action.
    ConversionAction conversionAction = new ConversionAction()
    {
        Name = "Earth to Mars Cruises Conversion #" + ExampleUtilities.GetRandomString(),
        Category = ConversionActionCategory.Default,
        Type = ConversionActionType.Webpage,
        Status = ConversionActionStatus.Enabled,
        ViewThroughLookbackWindowDays = 15,
        ValueSettings = new ConversionAction.Types.ValueSettings()
        {
            DefaultValue = 23.41,
            AlwaysUseDefaultValue = true
        }
    };

    // Create the operation.
    ConversionActionOperation operation = new ConversionActionOperation()
    {
        Create = conversionAction
    };

    try
    {
        // Create the conversion action.
        MutateConversionActionsResponse response =
            conversionActionService.MutateConversionActions(customerId.ToString(),
                    new ConversionActionOperation[] { operation });

        // Display the results.
        foreach (MutateConversionActionResult newConversionAction in response.Results)
        {
            Console.WriteLine($"New conversion action with resource name = " +
                $"'{newConversionAction.ResourceName}' was added.");
        }
    }
    catch (GoogleAdsException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Failure:");
        Console.WriteLine($"Message: {e.Message}");
        Console.WriteLine($"Failure: {e.Failure}");
        Console.WriteLine($"Request ID: {e.RequestId}");
        throw;
    }
}

PHP

{
    // Creates a conversion action.
