Google has announced that it’s introducing improvements to the sunset notifications of Google Ad Manager API.
The latest improvements are based on users feedback related to the current Ad Manager API sunset notifications, said Google Ad Manager team.
Here are details on some of the upcoming improvements to Ad Manager API:
Greater User Control
Google Ad Manager is enabling network administrators to decide whether to receive notifications through the Notification Settings panel in the Ad Manager UI.
Google will automatically opt-in network administrators to notifications at launch.
To opt-out to the notifications network, administrators need to uncheck the box next to the Deprecated API.
Here is a screenshot of the Notification settings panel in the Ad Manager UI:
More Meaningful Information
Google Ad Manager communication email when sent out also includes a list of applications that are using the deprecated API along with its version.
Now, Google has improved email notification from Ad Manager that will also include more information on how many requests each application made to the deprecated API.
Google Ad Manager team says this new addition will help users to prioritize applications that need an upgrade first. And, will also help in expediting the API upgrade process.
Alongside the email notification, Google will also publish a notification card in the Ad Manager UI. So, those who have missed email notifications can see it in the Ad Manager UI or vice-a-versa.
Google Ad Manager will send both email notification and notification card on the second Tuesday of each month.
A screenshot below shows the new notification card in Google Ad Manager UI:
As always, Google Ad Manager has updated the deprecation schedule page with “upcoming deprecation” and “sunset dates.” which is available here.
The updates will roll out to all Google Ad Manager network administrators in the “coming weeks.”
