Rule to boost bids based on low impression share won't work

I have a rather simple rule meant to boost impression share, but it will not run.  I would love a second set of eyes on this...

The rule:
here's a screen grab


Here's some of the data it's being run on:    

All conditions 1,2, 3 and 4 are met, but the script still says "nothing would change"

Hi @scottclark sorry for the delay in replying, are you still having problems?


Nothing jumps out at me from your screenshots, it certainly looks like it should work.  Have you tried reducing the criteria to try and get any result?  e.g. look for just an SIS less than 80%, then look for just a cost/conversion less than $35?  Try to break the query down and check for results in other conditions.


The only other thing I can think of is that SIS is a weird metric that isn't always available.  Although it's shown in your screen shot it may be (and it's a total guess) that for some reason the data isn't being made available to automated rules.

Have you tried a simple script to examine the data?
