Ad Words API - read only access

Is it possible to setup API access to an account with read only access?


All the documentation references the need to access the API from an MCC account. If we link the adwords account to our MCC account that automatically requires Edit access.


I found this article:


But I think this has been replaced by the current documentation.

Hi Graham,
All API questions are taken care of on the dedicated Adwords API forum so I think you might have more luck there.
It can be found here:!forum/adwords-api

Please make sure you read the sticky post at the top of the forum before posting though.
Sorry I can't be of more help right now.
