For Apple Search Ads you need to generate an API certificate and download the certificate and the private key. You can create and manage certificates under the Account Settings of your admin account. Follow the steps to retrieve these files:
  1. Log in to Apple Search Ads.
  2. Click the Account Settings in the top right corner.
  3. Go to the API tab and click the Create API Certificate button.
  4. Enter an API certificate name, then select the Account Read Only option. Click Create.
  5. Click Actions, then select Download certificate from the drop-down list.
  6. The certificates will be downloaded in a .zip file that contains 2 separate files, certificate_name.pem and certificate_name.key.


Import Settings

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


You can find the full list of API endpoints for the Apple Search Ads APIs and the description for each item on the official documentation

Updating your data

For this integration, 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.
