How to set your own Google Ads developer token

  • Dark
    Light

Overview

Matillion ETL uses a Google Ads developer token by default with the Google Ads Query component, removing the necessity for customers to add their own.

However, customers can specify their own token to override the default token if they wish—for example, if a scenario arose where the default token was revoked.


Specifying a custom Google Ads developer token

1. SSH into the Matillion ETL instance.

2. Open the file /usr/share/emerald/WEB-INF/classes/Emerald.properties

3. Specify a new value for the variable GOOGLE_ADS_DEVELOPER_TOKEN.

4. The value must be base64 encoded.

Alternatively:

1. SSH into the Matillion ETL instance.

2. Specify a new value for the variable GOOGLE_ADS_DEVELOPER_TOKEN as a Java environment variable with the MTLN_ prefix.

3. This can be done either as a system level environment variable, or in /etc/sysconfig/tomcat8.

4. The value must be base64 encoded.
