Google AdWords ADO.NET Provider

An easy-to-use database-like interface for .NET applications access to live Google AdWords data (Campaigns, AdGroups, Performance, and more).



Easily back up data to SQL Server using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ads. This example uses an SSIS workflow to populate a database with Google Ads data.

The CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ads connects Google Ads data to applications that provide backup, reporting, full-text search, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the provider for Google Ads inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to directly transfer Google Ads data into a Microsoft SQL Server database. The exact same procedure outlined below can be used with any CData ADO.NET Data Providers to connect SQL Server directly with remote data via SSIS.

  1. Open Visual Studio and create a new Integration Services project.
  2. Add a new Data Flow task from the toolbox onto the Control Flow screen.
  3. In the Data Flow screen, add an ADO.NET Source and an OLE DB Destination from the toolbox.

  4. Add a new connection and select .NET Providers\CData ADO.NET Provider for Google Ads.
  5. In the connection manager, enter the connection details for Google Ads data.

    Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. To access Google APIs on behalf on individual users, you can use the embedded credentials or you can register your own OAuth app.

    OAuth also enables you to use a service account to connect on behalf of users in a Google Apps domain. To authenticate with a service account, you will need to register an application to obtain the OAuth JWT values.

    In addition to the OAuth values, specify the DeveloperToken and ClientCustomerId.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

  6. Open the DataReader editor and set the following information:

    • ADO.NET connection manager: In the Connection Managers menu, select the Data Connection you just created.
    • Data access mode: Select 'SQL command'.
    • SQL command text: In the DataReader Source editor, open the Component Properties tab and enter a SELECT command, such as the one below:

      SELECT Device, Clicks FROM CampaignPerformance

  7. Close the DataReader editor and drag the arrow below the DataReader Source to connect it to the OLE DB Destination.
  8. Open the OLE DB Destination and enter the following information in the Destination Component Editor.

    • Connection manager: Add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here. In this example, SQLExpress is running on a separate machine.
    • Data access mode: Set your data access mode to "table or view" and select the table or view to populate in your database.
  9. Configure any properties you wish on the Mappings screen.

  10. Close the OLE DB Destination Editor and run the project. After the SSIS task has finished executing, your database will be populated with data obtained from Google Ads data.
