Good morning.

 

In addition to Pankaj's accurate reply, let me add that "real time" data is not available for AdWords performance,not even through the API.

 

Ads are served through multiple servers around the world. Data is periodically sent from those servers to a central location where it's formatted and posted into the AdWords UI or made available for API access. (That's not exactly how it works but it's an easy way to think about the process.)

 

Using API access can get you access to data more quickly than the AdWords interface "sees" it but it's not going to be 100% "real time."

Hello Vikash,

 

For API related queries, there is a dedicated AdWords API forum. This is the link to it: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/adwords-api

 

You might want to post it over there for better insights.
