API changes not working

(edited)

Hi there,

I'm writing from Blinkist or Blinks Labs GmbH.

At the moment, a lot of automation changes that we push through the API are not working. Mainly to do with campaign level CPC changes and publisher bid adjustment.

You can find them documented in this file, along with the error messages that we receive. Can you have a lot and tell us what we are doing wrong? Here's a quick summary to help you get into this.

  1. We push campaign level CPC changes and the publisher bids for the respective campaigns in one go, so we only get one error message -> message: 'Cpc boost value must be between -99% and 100%'. This doesn't help us understand why the campaign level CPC changes are not happening.

  2. For publisher bids, we always send it as a %, either +20%, +10% or -50%. We see instances of failure with each of these changes, which isn't explained by this error message: Cpc boost value must be between -99% and 100%'

  3. We do have instances where the campaign level CPC changes are pushed successfully, it is when a campaign does not have publisher bidding changes.

We're looking forward to your assistance so we can solve this asap.
Sandra
