What user permissions are required to import cost data?

Important!Our service will not, under any circumstance, take any action for changing the settings of your account, campaigns, or banners.

If you notice any suspicious activity in your account, we recommend that you change the password for your account and update the access to the ad service in OWOX BI so that your pipeline works properly. If the password is changed, the pipeline is blocked until the access is updated.

Google Analytics user permission

To import data to Google Analytics, your Google account must have the Edit permission in the Google Analytics property you want to upload cost data to using the OWOX BI Pipeline.

When creating a cost data pipeline to Google Analytics, you need to grant the OWOX BI application access to your Google account with the scope to edit and view Google Analytics data.


User permissions in the advertising platforms

For most of the advertising platforms, OWOX BI needs the read-only scope of access. With it, we can correctly collect the statistics and information about link tagging in your ads. However, not all advertising services have the read data access level, for instance:

  • Facebook. The platform has some restrictions on data reading, so we require a different access level. OWOX BI requests the ads_management permission to import the raw data from Facebook into Google BigQuery.
  • LinkedIn. The LinkedIn API manages the access permissions through the Products. Each Product has a preset list of permissions that are determined by LinkedIn and cannot be changed by the 3rd party applications. To import data from your LinkedIn ad account, OWOX BI uses the Marketing Developer Platform and Share on LinkedIn Products and will be granted all the permissions under the given Products. Otherwise, OWOX BI cannot fetch the required data for a comprehensive analysis of your ad costs.

Please take a look at the examples of Grant access pages below:
