Updates a channel. Returns the updated channel if successful.


You will need authorization for the https://www.googleapis.com/auth/display-video scope to make a valid call.

If unset, the scope for this method defaults to https://www.googleapis.com/auth/display-video. You can set the scope for this method like this: displayvideo1 --scope <scope> advertisers channels-patch ...

Required Scalar Arguments

  • <advertiser-id> (string)
    • The ID of the advertiser that owns the created channel.
  • <channel-id> (string)
    • Output only. The unique ID of the channel. Assigned by the system.

Required Request Value

The request value is a data-structure with various fields. Each field may be a simple scalar or another data-structure. In the latter case it is advised to set the field-cursor to the data-structure's field to specify values more concisely.

For example, a structure like this:

  advertiser-id: string
  channel-id: string
  display-name: string
  name: string
  negatively-targeted-line-item-count: int64
  partner-id: string
  positively-targeted-line-item-count: int64

can be set completely with the following arguments which are assumed to be executed in the given order. Note how the cursor position is adjusted to the respective structures, allowing simple field names to be used most of the time.

  • -r . advertiser-id=amet.
    • The ID of the advertiser that owns the channel.
  • channel-id=consetetur
    • Output only. The unique ID of the channel. Assigned by the system.
  • display-name=diam
    • Required. The display name of the channel. Must be UTF-8 encoded with a maximum length of 240 bytes.
  • name=dolor
    • Output only. The resource name of the channel.
  • negatively-targeted-line-item-count=-18
    • Output only. Number of line items that are directly targeting this channel negatively.
  • partner-id=et
    • The ID of the partner that owns the channel.
  • positively-targeted-line-item-count=-95
    • Output only. Number of line items that are directly targeting this channel positively.

About Cursors

The cursor position is key to comfortably set complex nested structures. The following rules apply:

  • The cursor position is always set relative to the current one, unless the field name starts with the . character. Fields can be nested such as in -r f.s.o .
  • The cursor position is set relative to the top-level structure if it starts with ., e.g. -r .s.s
  • You can also set nested fields without setting the cursor explicitly. For example, to set a value relative to the current cursor position, you would specify -r struct.sub_struct=bar.
  • You can move the cursor one level up by using ... Each additional . moves it up one additional level. E.g. ... would go three levels up.

Optional Output Flags

The method's return value a JSON encoded structure, which will be written to standard output by default.

  • -o out
    • out specifies the destination to which to write the server's result to. It will be a JSON-encoded structure. The destination may be - to indicate standard output, or a filepath that is to contain the received bytes. If unset, it defaults to standard output.

Optional Method Properties

You may set the following properties to further configure the call. Please note that -p is followed by one or more key-value-pairs, and is called like this -p k1=v1 k2=v2 even though the listing below repeats the -p for completeness.

  • -p partner-id=string

    • The ID of the partner that owns the created channel.
  • -p update-mask=string

    • Required. The mask to control which fields to update.

  • -p $-xgafv=string

    • V1 error format.
  • -p access-token=string

    • OAuth access token.
  • -p alt=string

    • Data format for response.
  • -p callback=string

    • JSONP
  • -p fields=string

    • Selector specifying which fields to include in a partial response.
  • -p key=string

    • API key. Your API key identifies your project and provides you with API access, quota, and reports. Required unless you provide an OAuth 2.0 token.
  • -p oauth-token=string

    • OAuth 2.0 token for the current user.
  • -p pretty-print=boolean

    • Returns response with indentations and line breaks.
  • -p quota-user=string
