How to receive the logged in user info PatrickvKleef 6/12/12 12:18 PM
Hi!

I'm new with using the Google Adwords API. I'm using OAuth to authenticate users.
I would like to receive user information (emailaddress, name, etc.) when the user is authenticated with OAuth.

Can somebody help me with this?

 Forgot to mention, I'm using OAuth 2.0.

Hi Patrick,

AdWords doesn't contain information about the user name, profile image, etc. What it has at best is the company name of the Advertiser account and login email. You could use ServicedAccountService to retrieve these information. See https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/reference/latest/ServicedAccountService for details.

In case you are looking for the profile of the logged in user, that's outside the scope of AdWords API. This link might help you: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7130648/get-user-info-via-google-api

Thanks for your response Anash!

Maybe it's a good idea to explain what I want do.
I would like to give certain users access to the web application I'm building. When using the Adwords API
client library it is possible to login users with OAuth, but the problem is that not everybody with
a google account should have access to the web application. So I would like to receive the email (and other user information only for displaying) of the user
and than check if the user has access rights. Is there a better way of give users access to your
web application that's using the Adwords API?

The user accounts that can access the web application has access to google adwords accounts (one or more client customer Ids).

Greetings!

Hello PatrickvKleef,


It is not possible to retrieve the logged in user email address via AdWords API when using OAuth. I suggest to use clientCustomerId instead.

You can obtain the list of customer IDs the logged in user has access to via ServicesAccountService or InfoService and use them to whitelist users to access your application.

Thanks for the response Danial.

Multiple users can have access to a single clientcustomerId and I would like to distinguish them by display there name and emailaddress. Is it possible to use the Google API (UserInfo) in combination with the Google Adwords API and how can I do this?

Hello PatrickvKleef,


This should be possible by including several scopes in your OAuth request and using other API to obtain the user information. Please check with the relevant API documentation as this is out of scope for the AdWords API Team.
