For a client project, I used nodejs SDK access to the Google Ads API to generate a daily automated budget report.
I use refresh tokens to access the API – this all works so far so well. Unfortunately, the refresh token expires after 1 week if I don’t generate a new one using OAuth Flow – the software is still in test mode.
If I want to go productive, Google requests a YouTube video (!!) showing the application due to the selected scope – however, it is only a command line application, there is nothing to show here.
I have not found a way to select that it is only a command line application. Any similar experiences here on how to get past this hurdle?
Another way would be to use a service account to access the Google Ads API, but that doesn’t seem to be intended.
Thanks for your support!
