Enable Custom AdGroup Bids through scripts

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a number of accounts that need to set modified bids for certain placements, for certain adgroups. I have no problem doing this via scripts, but the bid doesn't get set. I know I need to go into the adgroup placements page and manually change bidding to "Enable Custom Bids". There are far more adgroups/campaigns/accounts to do this for than I care to do manually. Is there a way to "Enable custom bids" through the adwords scripts? Or failing that, through the API?

Hi @Kevin H I'm sorry but I've found no way to do this programmatically via scripts.  Have you tried asking over in the Scripts forum?

Or the API?
