Exception requests with AdWords Scripts

Good day, dear experts!

How can I implement an exception request when creating ads and keywords with AdWords Scripts? (Since this is done in Editor - ).

I read the documentation -

But I do not understand how you can implement it in the script(

For example, the function of which I create keywords:

function findAndCreateKeywords(key, AdApp, AdGroup) {
var tmp = AdApp.keywords().withCondition('Text = "' + key + '"').get();
if (!tmp.hasNext()) {
Logger.log(key + ' created');
} else {
Logger.log(key + ' found');

How to change it so that I can submit exception request when a keyword has PolicyViolationError ?

Hi @Alex Y


I'm not sure you'd be able to do this in a single script within AdWords itself as the system has no way of "knowing" that a policy violation is possible until after the Keyword is created.  The Editor can do this because the program contains its own checks - creating a new Keyword in Editor is in that way similar to creating a new Keyword in the AdWords front end.


You'd have to use a separate script that checked for Keywords with a status of "Disapproved" (using the method getApprovalStatus() which, unfortunately, doesn't appear to be an option to use for a condition, so you may have to iterate all Keywords to check; I haven't tested this).
