LinkedIn Ads Integration

In this article, we’ll integrate a LinkedIn Ads data source with Y42.

LinkedIn Ad Analytics offer you information about the performance of your LinkedIn Ads.


Authentication: OAuth
Settings: Historical Date selection
Schema type: Fixed
Update Type: Full import


OAuth doesn’t share password data but instead uses authorization tokens to prove an identity between you and the service provider. OAuth is an authentication protocol that allows you to approve one application interacting with another on your behalf without giving away your password. For instance, when you tell Facebook that it’s OK for another application or website to access your profile. To sum up, you only need to have an existing account to authorize the access.


Import Settings

By default, the historical date will be set to one year ago. Refer to your own store to decide from which exact date you would want to retrieve data.

Account pre-requisites

You will need an Ad Org and an active LinkedIn account within this Ad Organization with permission to access data from accounts you'd like to sync.



You can find a list of available API endpoints and their entities for this integration on LinkedIn Ads API documentation.


Updating your data

For this source you can schedule full imports. Every time the source updates it will fully sync all your data. You have the option of scheduling updates by the month, weeks, days, and even by the hour.
