The Google Ads API provides a few different ways for mutating resources, depending on
your use case. Each resource has a corresponding service that allows you to
specify mutate operations for that specific resource type. For example, the
Campaign resource has a corresponding
endpoint for mutating campaigns.
Another option is the
GoogleAdsService.Mutate endpoint, which essentially
wraps a series of individual mutate calls on the resource services, and
provides the following benefits:
- Atomic transactions across different resource types. Normal service calls can only provide atomicity for operations with a single resource type.
- Temporary resource names.
Using these two properties together, you can use
for example create an entire campaign structure if and only if every step along
the way succeeds.
