    • The role of the requester. Valid values: 'advertisers' or 'publishers'.

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
  authorship: string
  availability: string
  click-tracking-url: string
  create-date: string
  description: string
  destination-url: string
  duration: string
  end-date: string
    amount: number
    currency-code: string
    amount: number
    currency-code: string
  id: string
  image-alt-text: string
  impression-tracking-url: string
  is-active: boolean
  kind: string
  link-type: string
  name: string
  promotion-type: string
    free-gift: boolean
    free-shipping: boolean
      amount: number
      currency-code: string
    percent-off: number
      amount: number
      currency-code: string
      amount: number
      currency-code: string
      amount: number
      currency-code: string
    promotion-codes: [string]
  start-date: string

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.
