"AdWords API Center" not an option under MCC "My Accounts"

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'd like to research the Google AdWords API further to build ETL's to extract raw reporting data into my employer's data warehouse.  I don't see "AdWords API Center" as an opton under my Account in the MCC.  Am I missing a step?

 

Thanks,

I thought you signed up for a developer token through the 'AdWords API Center'?

> You can sign up for the AdWords API when logged in to your MCC account. Navigate to [Settings (gear icon in top right corner) > Account Settings (drop-down menu) > AdWords API Center (left menu)] and follow the instructions to apply for AdWords API access.

Your links don't show where to get the developer token? I don't see the api here

You can sign up for the AdWords API when logged in to your MCC account. Navigate to [Settings (gear icon in top right corner) > Account Settings (drop-down menu) > AdWords API Center (left menu)] and follow the instructions to apply for AdWords API access.

And your link doesn't show where to go to get it?

after signing-up via the api-center, google will email a form (and the api-token) --

the email-address used by google is listed under the adwords-api-center tab.

 

the api-token will only be activated if approved via the form, after signing-up.


the awords-api-center menu will only show on the left-hand-side
of a live, active, production, my-client-center (mcc) account -- while
under the main mcc-manager's my-client-center area.

the google-login should be the direct mcc-manager (account-owner) -- not linked.

then, currently, the following direct url should work:
https://adwords.google.com/mcm/Mcm

importantly, the menu will *not* show under -- any test-account, any
regular adwords account, or any client (section) of any mcc-account.

otherwise, the best likely course would be to ask in the adwords-api forums:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/adwords-api
