DML Operations Support
|INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE||AdGroups, Ads, Campaigns|
The reports are present in the TikTok Ads connector as tables with the -Report suffix in their names. All reports are divided into separate tables according to the report levels: AdAccount, Campaign, AdGroup, or Ad with the corresponding suffix in the table names. There are several types of reports. Simple reports contain the regular reports, daily reports with the basic set of metrics, and the SKAN reports with additional metrics set. The full metrics set is available in the extended reports.
The tables with the -Daily suffix in their names contain the metrics grouped by days. The data selection period is set by default if you do not set filters. The default report end date is equal to the current date. The default report start date is determined by the maximal allowed period (30 days).
The tables without the -Daily suffix contain the metrics for the whole period/ selected period. These tables contain the StartDate/EndDate fields. You can set the values for these fields if you set filters. The data selection period is set by default if you do not set filters. The default report end date is equal to the current date. The default report start date is determined by the maximal allowed period (365 days).
Simple reports are convenient when you need to query a small data volume. They may timeout when querying significant data volumes.
The tables with the -ExtendedReport suffix in their names are read in the asynchronous API mode. The extended reports contain the full list of the fields available in the API.
Extended reports are not limited to the data selection period. The minimal possible start date for such reports is 01.01.2012.
Incremental Replication and Synchronization
The objects Campaigns, AdGroups, Ads, and Audiences contain the UpdatedDate or CreatedDate fields, thus, the Replication with Incremental Updates and Synchronization is supported for these objects.
The -Report objects may contain either the StartDate, EndDate, or Date (daily report) fields with data type DATE, not the DATETIME. It means that the Replication package with Incremental Updates enabled does not retrieve the data for the current date to avoid duplications. For example, running the replication package today will return the report with the data selection as of yesterday.
Skyvia supports all the common actions for TikTok Ads.
