Create and Manage Creatives

The Creatives API contains all the data and information for visually rendering an ad. There are several types of Ad Creatives that you can associate with campaigns including:

The following conditions apply when using the Creatives API:

  • An Ad Account can have a maximum of 15,000 creatives.
  • A campaign can have a maximum of 100 creatives.
  • Creative types must match the source campaign ad format. If the campaign has no ad format set, it is set by the first creative developed under that campaign. Dynamic, carousel, and video ad campaigns must have their format set upon creation.

Note

The Creatives API replaces the adCreativesV2 API. See Migration Guide for more details.

Schema

Note

All APIs require the request headers LinkedIn-Version: {Version in YYYYMM format} and X-Restli-Protocol-Version: 2.0.0

Field Name Required Type Description
account No Sponsored Account URN URN identifying the advertising account associated with the creative. This field is read-only.
campaign Yes Sponsored Campaign URN URN identifying the campaign associated with the creative
content No Underlying content URN Content sponsored in the creative. On creation, it can be dynamic Ad content (follower, job, spotlight), text, or a reference to InMail Content or post (image, video, article, carousel). Content can also be extended and specified as inline content instead of an URN. A reference must be a adInMailContent{id}, share{id}, or ugcPost{id}.
createdAt No Time Creation time
createdBy No Person URN Entity (e.g., a person URN) that developed the creative
id No Sponsored creative URN Unique ID for a creative (e.g.,SponsoredCreativeUrn). Read-only
inlineContent Required if action is createInline Post Inline content sponsored in the creative such as ugcPost in order to reduce the number of user calls.
intendedStatus No ENUM Creative user intended status. The creative intended status is set independently from parent entity status, but parent entity status overrides creative intended status in effect. For example, parent entity status may be PAUSED while creative status is ACTIVE, in which case the creative's effective status is PAUSED, and not served.
  • ACTIVE - Creative development is complete and the creative is available for review and can be served.
  • PAUSED - Creative development is complete and the creative is current, but should temporarily not be served.
  • DRAFT - Creative development is incomplete and may still be edited.
  • ARCHIVED - Creative development is complete, but creative should not be served and should be separated from non-archived creatives in any UI.
  • CANCELLED - The creative is permanently cancelled.
  • PENDING_DELETION - Denotes that the creative has been requested to be deleted that is currently pending.
  • REMOVED - Denotes that the creative was deleted, but must remain fetchable due to the existence of performance data.
  • isServing No boolean This indicates whether the creative is currently being served or not. This field is read-only.
    lastModifiedAt No Time Time at which the creative was last modified in milliseconds since epoch.
    lastModifiedBy No Person URN The entity (e.g., person URN) who modified the creative
    review No CreativeReview Creative review status. The review status cannot be set/updated via the API but is started when the creative is activated (i.e., moves from draft state to active state). Hence, the review is absent (null) when the creative is in DRAFT state. Read-only.
    servingHoldReasons No servingHoldReasons Array that contains all the reasons why the creative is not serving. In the case a creative is being served, this field will be null and not present in the response.

    CreativeReview

    Field Name Required Type Description
    status Yes ENUM
  • PENDING - Creative is pending review and not serving.
  • APPROVED - Creative is approved for serving. It includes Creative that has been preapproved or auto approved by content model.

  • NEEDS_REVIEW - Creative has been rejected by content model or policy checker or returned by fallback case that auto approval did not make any decision.
  • rejectionReasons No Array[] An array of reasons for rejecting creatives. For more details, refer to the RejectionReason list.

    Create a Creative

    LinkedIn partners can create a video ad with either of the following options.

    Create a Creative with an Existing Organic Post

    You can sponsor an existing organic post that has been serving your company page followers and gone viral.

    To create a video ad creative, the post associated with the creative must be in the PUBLISHED state. The uploaded video may be in the PROCESSING state for several minutes after creation. Use the Post endpoint to retrieve the post and check the lifecycleState field. Do not create a video ad creative until the associated video post's lifecycleState field is PUBLISHED.

    Sample Request

    POST https://api.linkedin.com/rest/creatives
    
    {
      "content": {
        "reference": "urn:li:ugcPost:6778045555198214144"
      },
      "campaign": "urn:li:sponsoredCampaign:360035215",
      "intendedStatus": "ACTIVE"
    }
    

    A successful response returns a 201 Created HTTP status code and the ID in the x-linkedin-id response header. For example, urn:li:sponsoredCreative:120491345.

    Update a Creative

    You can change the details of following Creatives fields:

    • intendedStatus:
    • leadgenCallToAction: field adFormUrn - The ad form that is a target destination for the callToAction button. It can only be modified when the creative is in DRAFT status. It is read only once it is set for a creative and once it transitions to any non-draft intended status.
    • leadgenCallToAction: field label -Label for the callToAction button

    Sample Request

    The following example call is for updating intendedStatus to active.

    The status of a creative determines whether or not the ad is served. See intendedStatus under Creative Schema to understand active, paused, archived, and cancelled statuses.

This endpoint returns a 400 error if you attempt to change the status of an in-review ad creative to paused.

    The header X-RestLi-Method must be included in the request and set to PARTIAL_UPDATE.
