        • Supported granularities for Custom metrics (metrics created with Microsoft Advertising Metric Builder)

          All Microsoft Advertising Custom metrics support the following granularities:

          • hourly
          • daily
          • weekly
          • monthly
          • yearly

          However, all metrics are non-aggregatable, which means that values are obtained via API for each Date Range and granularity separately instead of being aggregated by Databox from granular values (e.g. daily values).

        • Filter ‘by Metric’ that is available under ‘Advanced options’ in Microsoft Advertising Metric Builder does not show a metric dropdown list

          Dropdown list is not available because one metric (set under ‘Metric’ field) cannot be filtered based on other metric’s data. Filter ‘by Metric’ allows filtering out days, weeks, months, etc. when there are, for example, 5000 users on the website.

          Microsoft Advertising API allows only the operator ‘Equals’ for this filtering, and this is why selected metric can be filtered only by exact values.

        • Use the ‘personal’ Microsoft Advertising account type to make a connection in Databox

          Microsoft Advertising allows their users to set additional account authentication and differ between a ‘work account’ and a ‘personal account’.

          However, ‘work accounts’ might have specific API limitations when it comes to usage with third-party tools such as Databox.

          Therefore, it is recommended to use the ‘personal account’ type to connect a Microsoft Advertising Data Sources in Databox.

          In order to see whether you are using a ‘work’ or ‘personal’ account, go to the Users page in Microsoft Advertising User Interface and under User Management check the specified account type under ‘Sign in with’ field.

        • Disconnected Microsoft Advertising Data Source with the error ‘Expired token’

          Microsoft Advertising refresh tokens last for 90 days. A new refresh token is received (and stored) whenever an access token is requested, therefore the Microsoft Advertising Data Source does not need to be reconnected every 90 days.

          However, in cases where Microsoft Advertising is connected to Databox and then not used for 90 days or more, it is possible that the connection will no longer work if it starts being used after 90 days of inactivity. In this case, Databox will receive an ‘Expired token’ error from the Microsoft Advertising API, and Data Source will need to be reconnected in order to obtain a valid refresh token.
