In other, Google AdWords releated news, Google in a nov. 3 blog post,announced a change to the process of downloading reports from the AdWords API that will affect all report downloads for tools built on API versions post v13.

In the post Kevin Winter, AdWords API Team says that "All report downloads - whether they be AdHoc or pre-v201109, using either GET or POST - must provide the developer token as an HTTP header."

Example formatting of header: developerToken: 1a2B3c4D5e_-6v7w8x9y0z

Adding, he says, "If your application fails to provide the developer token as an HTTP header after November 23rd, it will receive the error message: QuotaCheckError.INVALID_TOKEN_HEADER when downloading reports."

"We'll be publishing updates to the example and utility code in the client libraries to reflect this change," added Winter.

For more information regarding report downloads, refer this report download documentation.
