Natively Connect to Google Ad Manager Data in PHP

The CData ODBC driver for Google Ad Manager enables you to create PHP applications with connectivity to Google Ad Manager data. Leverage the native support for ODBC in PHP.

Drop the CData ODBC Driver for Google Ad Manager into your LAMP or WAMP stack to build Google Ad Manager-connected Web applications. This article shows how to use PHP's ODBC built-in functions to connect to Google Ad Manager data, execute queries, and output the results.

Configure a DSN

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Google Ads Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Ads Manager as an individual user or with a service account that you create in the Google APIs Console. See the Getting Started section in the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

Establish a Connection

Open the connection to Google Ad Manager by calling the odbc_connect or odbc_pconnect methods. To close connections, use odbc_close or odbc_close_all.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC GoogleAdsManager Source","user","password");

Connections opened with odbc_connect are closed when the script ends. Connections opened with the odbc_pconnect method are still open after the script ends. This enables other scripts to share that connection when they connect with the same credentials. By sharing connections among your scripts, you can save system resources, and queries execute faster.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC GoogleAdsManager Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($conn); //persistent connection must be closed explicitly

Create Prepared Statements

Create prepared statements and parameterized queries with the odbc_prepare function.

$query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Orders WHERE Id = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC GoogleAdsManager Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Orders WHERE Id = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('2112976978'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC GoogleAdsManager Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Id, Name FROM Orders");

Process Results

Access a row in the result set as an array with the odbc_fetch_array function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Google Ad Manager data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Id, Name FROM Orders"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["Id"] . "\n"; }

Display the result set in an HTML table with the odbc_result_all function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Google Ad Manager data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Orders WHERE Id = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('2112976978')); if($success) odbc_result_all($query);

More Example Queries

You will find complete information on the driver's supported SQL in the help documentation. The code examples above are Google Ad Manager-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
