Adding withIds() to the Large Manager Heirarchy Template for AdWords Scripts

What is the Large Manager Hierarchy Template?

You may want to make bulk changes across a large number of accounts within your MCC using AdWords Scripts. However, there a limitations on the run time of a AdWords script which means it will time out if you try and use it across too many accounts. Google have fortunately released a solution to this which allows the script to save its progress and restart to avoid issues with timing out. This is called the Large Manager Hierarchy Template. All you really need to worry about is the processAccount( ) function.

 function processAccount() {
  // REPLACE WITH YOUR IMPLEMENTATION
  // e.g. var whatever = AdWordsApp.something().... etc.
  } 

This will determine the changes you make to your AdWords account. For example, you could change all the campaigns within each account to have an optimised ad rotation.

 function processAccount() {
    var campaignSelector = AdWordsApp.campaigns();
    var campaignIterator = campaignSelector.get();
    while (campaignIterator.hasNext()) {
        var campaign = campaignIterator.next();
        campaign.setAdRotationType("OPTIMIZE")
    }
} 

What changes did you make to it?

I modified it so you can add an array of AdWords client IDs in the TEMPLATE_CONFIG at the start of the script, to limit the script to run only on those particular AdWords client IDs. For example:

 // A list of AdWords IDs conditions to restrict the population of child accounts.
  // Leave blank or comment out to include all child accounts.	
  CUSTOMER_IDS: [1087448830, 1100036613, 1114403699] 

How do I use it?

To implement the script, go to your MCC and navigate to Bulk Operations > Scripts > and add a new script using the +Script button. Copy and paste the below script with your required changes and schedule it to run every half an hour until it has successfully worked through all accounts. It processes 50 at a time, so if you have 2000 accounts, it will be done in 20 hours. Once this is done, remove the schedule from the script (although it does not matter if you just leave it running).

The modified template

Please note: I do not own this or accept any responsibility for it – use at your own peril! Don’t get overwhelmed by it – the main thing you need to worry about is processAccount( ).

/**
 * @name Large Manager Hierarchy Template
 *
 * @overview The Large Manager Hierarchy Template script provides a general way
 *     to run script logic on all client accounts within a manager account
 *     hierarchy, splitting the work across multiple executions if necessary.
 *     Each execution of the script processes a subset of the hierarchy's client
 *     accounts that it hadn't previously processed, saving the results to a
 *     temporary file on Drive. Once the script processes the final subset of
 *     accounts, the consolidated results can be output and the cycle can begin
 *     again.
 *     See
 *     https://developers.google.com/adwords/scripts/docs/solutions/mccapp-manager-template
 *     for more details.
