Yahoo! Japan Search Ads Connector

Version 3

 

Intro

Yahoo! Japan Corporation is a Japanese internet company originally formed as a joint venture between the American internet company Yahoo! (now Altaba) and the Japanese company SoftBank. Use Domo's Yahoo! Japan Search Ads connector to retrieve report data. To learn more about the Yahoo! Japan Marketing Solutions API, visit their page (https://biz.marketing.yahoo.co.jp/de...er-en/program/).

You connect to your Yahoo! Japan Search Ads account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Yahoo! Search Ads connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Yahoo! Japan Search Ads account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • An API access-exclusive account ID (Application Account ID), in the format xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx  

  • A password set to the Application Account ID (onBehalfOfAccountId)

  • A Sponsored Search or Yahoo! Japan Display Ads Network account ID for access via API

To obtain these credentials, reach out to your Yahoo! Japan account representative.

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Yahoo! Search Ads Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
