Requesting Exemption for Keywords

The steps for requesting exemption for keywords are as follows:

  1. Store all the exemptible policy violation keys included in PolicyViolationDetails, returned when your first attempt to create a keyword failed.
  2. Send a mutate request to create the keyword again by including the stored exemptible policy violation keys.

Store all exemptible policy violation keys

The error details for keywords will be included in PolicyViolationDetails, which in turn stores the key field whose value is an object of PolicyViolationKey.

Collect all exemptible policy violation keys to be used in the next step:

Java

private List<PolicyViolationKey> extractExemptiblePolicyViolationKeys(
    GoogleAdsException googleAdsException) {
  List<PolicyViolationKey> exemptibleKeys = new ArrayList<>();
  System.out.println("Google Ads failure details:");
  for (GoogleAdsError googleAdsError : googleAdsException.getGoogleAdsFailure().getErrorsList()) {
    System.out.printf("\t%s: %s%n", googleAdsError.getErrorCode(), googleAdsError.getMessage());
    if (googleAdsError.hasDetails() && googleAdsError.getDetails().hasPolicyViolationDetails()) {
      PolicyViolationDetails policyViolationDetails =
          googleAdsError.getDetails().getPolicyViolationDetails();
      System.out.println("\tPolicy violation details:");
      System.out.printf(
          "\t\tExternal policy name: '%s'%n", policyViolationDetails.getExternalPolicyName());
      System.out.printf(
          "\t\tExternal policy description: '%s'%n",
          policyViolationDetails.getExternalPolicyDescription());
      System.out.printf("\t\tIs exemptible? '%s'%n", policyViolationDetails.getIsExemptible());
      if (policyViolationDetails.getIsExemptible() && policyViolationDetails.hasKey()) {
        PolicyViolationKey policyViolationKey = policyViolationDetails.getKey();
        exemptibleKeys.add(policyViolationKey);
        System.out.println("\t\tPolicy violation key:");
        System.out.printf("\t\t\tName: '%s'%n", policyViolationKey.getPolicyName());
        System.out.printf("\t\t\tViolating text: '%s'%n", policyViolationKey.getViolatingText());
      }
    }
  }
  return exemptibleKeys;
}

/**
 * Demonstrates how to request an exemption for policy violations of a keyword.
 *
 * <p>The example uses an exemptible policy-violating keyword by default. If you use a keyword that
 * contains non-exemptible policy violations, it will not be sent with exemptions requested and you
 * will still fail to create a keyword.
 *
 * <p>If you specify a keyword that doesn't violate any policies, this example will just add the
 * keyword as usual, similar to what the AddKeywords example does.
 *
 * <p>When you send a request to add a keyword after requesting a policy exemption for that keyword,
 * the request will pass as if you were adding a non-violating keyword.

=head1 NAME

handle_keyword_policy_violations

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This example demonstrates how to request an exemption for policy violations of a keyword.
Note that the example uses an exemptible policy-violating keyword by default. If you use
a keyword that contains non-exemptible policy violations, they will not be sent for
exemption request and you will still fail to create a keyword.
If you specify a keyword that doesn't violate any policies, this example will just add the
keyword as usual, similar to what the add_keywords.pl example does.

Note that once you've requested policy exemption for a keyword, when you send a request for
adding it again, the request will pass like when you add a non-violating keyword.
