Google Sunsets AdWords API - Verifying your Google Ads Configuration

Google has released Google Ads to replace Google AdWords and with the update, they have released a new API for partners to push data to their platform. 
As of 27 April 2022, Google has sunsetted the AdWords API.

AVANSER is not aware of any issues caused by the migration performed by Google. However, the change may affect your reporting if you have not refreshed Google's Authentication Code in your Google Ads configurations in a while.

This article, based on the Knowledge Base article Integrations: Google Ads , provides help on how to quickly verify your Google Ads Configuration and ensure your reporting is working as expected.

Verification Steps:
  1. Log onto your AVANSER account on Customer Portal. Select the cog wheel in the left bar and  click Integrations > Google Ads
