🚧

Tip: If the original campaign reached its end_date, make sure to submit a new end_date when you duplicate it.

Specify which sections should be duplicated

By default, the duplicate endpoint duplicates the entire campaign, and all its items. You can use the (optional) duplicate_settings param to control which campaign sections are included in the duplication.

duplicate_settings

{
    ...
    "duplicate_settings": {
        "include_items": false,
        "include_publisher_bid_modifiers": false,
        "include_blocked_publishers": true,
        "include_third_party_tracking": true
    }
}
{
    ...
    "duplicate_settings": {
        "include_items": false,
        "include_publisher_bid_modifiers": false
    }
}

🚧

If a setting is not present, the default value is true.
Therefor, the above 2 examples are equivalent.

Setting

Type

Pass 'true' (or leave out) to duplicate:

include_items

Boolean
(default = true)

include_publisher_bid_modifiers

Boolean
(default = true)

include_blocked_publishers

Boolean
(default = true)

include_third_party_tracking

Boolean
(default = true)

Example - Exclude the campaign items and publisher bid modifiers from the duplication

Duplication results

  1. Because include_items was set to false, the new campaign is created with an approval state of "PENDING", and without any items.
  2. Because include_publisher_bid_modifiers was set to false, the bid modifier fields have empty collections.
  3. Blocked publishers and third party tracking fields are duplicated as normal.

Example - Implicit inclusion

In the previous example, we specified the sections to exclude, as well as the sections to include.

If you leave out a setting, that section will be included by default.

The following request objects are equivalent:

{
   "name": "Demo Campaign - New name",
   "branding_text": "New branding text",
   "spending_limit": 10000,
   "spending_limit_model": "ENTIRE",
   "comment": "Please apply suitable targeting.",
   "duplicate_settings": {
      "include_items": false,
      "include_publisher_bid_modifiers": false,
      "include_blocked_publishers": true,
      "include_third_party_tracking": true
   }
}
{
   "name": "Demo Campaign - New name",
   "branding_text": "New branding text",
   "spending_limit": 10000,
   "spending_limit_model": "ENTIRE",
   "comment": "Please apply suitable targeting.",
   "duplicate_settings": {
      "include_items": false,
      "include_publisher_bid_modifiers": false
   }
}

Guidelines

Campaign duplication settings include a number of business rules. These are summarized below.

🚧

Guidelines

  1. To exclude a campaign section, set the relevant property under duplicate_settings to false.
  2. To duplicate a campaign section, set the relevant property under duplicate_settings to true - or leave it out.
  3. To duplicate all campaign sections, leave out the duplicate_settings param altogether (or pass true for all its properties).
  4. Campaign fields that were not included in the duplication will be assigned default values (just like any new campaign) - unless you explicitly assign them a value (see next point).
  5. You can update 1 of more campaign fields directly within the request body. The specified campaign fields will be updated, regardless of whether they were part of the duplication process.

Duplicate a campaign for a different account

You can assign the new campaign to a different account in your network. To do so, use the destination_account query param.
