Adobe Ads Report Types

Rivery supports two types of reports from Adobe Ads:

  • Insights Report: pulls metrical data about Account/Campaigns/Placements/Ads scopes.
  • Entities Report: pulls the entity data of  Account/Campaigns/Placements/Ads.

Report Scope

There are 4 report scopes (population) that are supported in Rivery:

  • Accounts

  • Campaigns

  • Placements

  • Ads

In each stage in that hierarchy, the user can filter the specific entity scope needed. Filtered accounts will affect the campaigns list, etc. However, you can choose a mix of entities to filter, that lay under one of the entities above it.

Please note that Ads scope can't be filtered. The Ads lists will come from the account/campaign/placements chosen above it.

Extract Method (Entities Report Only)

Entities report is compatible with two extract methods:

  • All - Pulls all of the entities in the scope without considering their start and end times.

  • Entities Activation Dates - Pull the entities in the scope by filtering between specific activation dates (start_day and end_day).

    For example, a user can pull only campaigns that

    started after Jan 1st 2019 and ended before Feb 28th 2019
