A bulk request returns data you can use with the different headers in the Update, Create, Estimate, and Delete worksheets.
The Bulk Management Tools are not supported by Audience Manager. This tool is provided for convenience and as a courtesy only. For bulk changes, we recommend that you work with the Audience Manager APIs instead. RBAC group permissions assigned in the Audience Manager UI are honored in the Bulk Management Tools.
The Request worksheet does not have its own set of column headers and you don't need to copy IDs to any of the columns. Instead, it returns data based on the action button you click in the toolbar. And, an optional reporting feature returns a frequency count for pixel fires and unique user count for several fixed time intervals.
To make bulk requests, open the Bulk Management Tools worksheet and:
- Click the Request tab.
- In the tool bar at the top of the worksheet, click a request button corresponding to the data you want to work with. You can request:
The Audience Manager API writes bulk data back to the Request worksheet.
- Algorithmic models
- Data sources
- Derived signals
- Destination mappings
- Algorithmic, rule-based, and on-boarded traits
- Trait and segment folder IDs
In your results, the createTime and updateTime columns return data in exponential notation. The underlying date/time stamps are recorded in UNIX UTC time. Currently, the worksheet cannot return date/time stamps in a readable format.
If your bulk update returns an error or fails, see Troubleshooting for Bulk Management Tools .
