type CreativePlaceholder (v201805)

A CreativePlaceholder describes a slot that a creative is expected to fill. This is used primarily to help in forecasting, and also to validate that the correct creatives are associated with the line item. A CreativePlaceholder must contain a size, and it can optionally contain companions. Companions are only valid if the line item's environment type is EnvironmentType.VIDEO_PLAYER.

Field

size

Size

The dimensions that the creative is expected to have. This attribute is required.

creativeTemplateId

xsd:long

The native creative template ID.

This value is only required if creativeSizeType is CreativeSizeType.NATIVE.

companions

CreativePlaceholder[]

The companions that the creative is expected to have. This attribute can only be set if the line item it belongs to has a LineItem.environmentType of EnvironmentType.VIDEO_PLAYER or LineItem.roadblockingType of RoadblockingType.CREATIVE_SET.

appliedLabels

AppliedLabel[]

The set of label frequency caps applied directly to this creative placeholder.

effectiveAppliedLabels

AppliedLabel[]

Contains the set of labels applied directly to this creative placeholder as well as those inherited from the creative template from which this creative placeholder was instantiated. This field is readonly and is assigned by Google.

expectedCreativeCount

xsd:int

Expected number of creatives that will be uploaded corresponding to this creative placeholder. This estimate is used to improve the accuracy of forecasting; for example, if label frequency capping limits the number of times a creative may be served.

creativeSizeType

CreativeSizeType

Describes the types of sizes a creative can be. By default, the creative's size is CreativeSizeType.PIXEL, which is a dimension based size (width-height pair).


Enumerations
PIXEL
Dimension based size, an actual height and width.
ASPECT_RATIO
Mobile size, that is expressed as a ratio of say 4 by 1, that could be met by a 100 x 25 sized image.
INTERSTITIAL
Out-of-page size, that is not related to the slot it is served. But rather is a function of the snippet, and the values set. This must be used with 1x1 size.
NATIVE
Native size, which is a function of the how the client renders the creative. This must be used with 1x1 size.

targetingName

xsd:string

The name of the CreativeTargeting for creatives this placeholder represents.

This attribute is optional. Specifying creative targeting here is for forecasting purposes only and has no effect on serving. The same creative targeting should be specified on a LineItemCreativeAssociation when associating a Creative with the LineItem.
