Google Ads API is returning to beta status. Please read our blog post for more details.

Resource Service Mutates

Using a resource's individual service is the most straightforward way to mutate it, but also the least flexible.

Mutate Endpoints

Using a resource-specific service is the most straightforward way to mutate. Each mutable resource has a corresponding service and a set of operations that enable you to create, update, or remove the resource.

Suppose you want to create a new Campaign. You would create a new Campaign object, put it inside a CampaignOperation, and then send it to the CampaignService.MutateCampaigns endpoint.

You can do this for any of the Google Ads API services. So for example, if you wanted to mutate a FeedItem, you would pass a FeedItemOperation containing the mutated FeedItem to the FeedItemService.MutateFeedItems endpoint.

Since the operations field of the request can be repeated, a single mutate request can contain multiple operations. However, each operation is treated independently from all others, so no cross-referencing is allowed.

This is in contrast to the bulk mutate method (GoogleAdsService.Mutate), where operations within the same request can reference entities from other operations.
