LinkedIn Ads-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for LinkedIn Ads:

  • In the Data Integration product, LinkedIn Ads connections are supported only for packages, which use a new data integration runtime.

    Make sure you select the Use new runtime check box on the tab bar if you want to use LinkedIn Ads in your package. You need to select this check box each time you create a new data integration package.

  • Skyvia supports data modification in such LinkedIn Ads objects as Accounts, Campaigns, CampaignGroups, TextAds, Conversions (INSERT, UPDATE).
  • Skyvia supports Replication with Incremental Updates for LinkedIn Ads objects, which have UpdatedDate and CreatedDate fields, and for objects with Report in their names, which have Date field. This field stores dates without time part. Thus, when performing replication with incremental updates, Skyvia only queries updates up to previous day, not today’s updates. It also means that there is no point to schedule replication with incremental updates more often than once per day.

    Thus, only such objects as Accounts, Campaigns, CampaignGroups, Conversions, CampaignRecommendations, CampaignInsights, AccountsDailyReport, CampaignGroupsDailyReport, CampaignsDailyReport, AdsDailyReport can be replicated with incremental updates in Skyvia.

  • Such objects as Ads, SponsoredUpdateAds, MessageAds, ConversionAds, CarouselAds, CampaignRecommendations, CampaignInsights, AccountsDailyReport, CampaignGroupsDailyReport, CampaignsDailyReport, AdsDailyReport are read-only.

  • Backup is not supported for LinkedIn Ads.
  • Synchronization is not supported for LinkedIn Ads.
