LinkedIn Ads Data Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to LinkedIn Ads. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.



Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access LinkedIn Ads tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for LinkedIn Ads is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with LinkedIn Ads. Below, you will find examples of using our LinkedInAds Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your LinkedIn Ads Data

LinkedIn Ads uses the OAuth authentication standard. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with LinkedIn using the browser. See the OAuth section in the Help documentation for a guide.

$conn = Connect-LinkedInAds  -OAuthClientId "$OAuthClientId" -OAuthClientSecret "$OAuthClientSecret" -CallbackURL "$CallbackURL"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the Analytics table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-LinkedInAds -Connection $conn -Table Analytics | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myAnalyticsData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-LinkedInAds into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
