Data Studio Missing Fields in AdWords connector

I'm trying to understand if and how Data Studio could work for me.

My problem is I started to connect it to Adwords, using the [Sample] AdWords Data, and it gives me a list of fields including for example the campaign ID

I tried to use directly that example as a data source, but then realized that it can't be switched to get data from my account.


So  I created a new data source, connecting with myAdWords :

All the Accounts >> Name of the account >> Account >> General account report ( or something like this) 


(the new data source has been added today, so with the new connector)


When I click on reconnect, it gives me a list of 119 fields, where for example I can't find the Id campaign that I'm finding in the [Sample] Adwords Data, and that would be really useful to filter my different campaigns to see how do they work..


So, why is this field missing??

Thanks a lot

Hi Giovanni


We're using a new API for AdWords that didn't include the Campaign ID. 


We are looking into adding that field into the new API. I will post back here when that becomes available. 


Best regards,
