Bing Ads Data Models
The connector models entities in the Bing Ads API as database views and stored procedures. These are defined in schema files, which are simple, text-based configuration files.
The following sections provide information on executing SQL to the available API objects. The driver offloads as much of the
SELECT statement processing as possible to Bing Ads and then processes the rest of the query in memory; API limitations and requirements are documented in this section.
SupportEnhancedSQL for more information on how the driver circumvents API limitations with in-memory client-side processing.
Read about the data model.
The connector supports several operations on data, including querying, deleting, modifying, and inserting.

Extract data from Bing Ads
Extracting data from Bing Ads is similar to extracting data from the relational database.
Here are the steps on how you can extract data from Bing Ads:
Step 1. Create Bing Ads Connection which will be used as a source (
Step 3. Create a Flow where the
source is a database and the destination is a Connection created in step 2, for example, a relational database.
Step 4. Add a new source-to-destination transformation.
Step 5. Select the Bing Ads Connection created in step 1 as a source Connection and select the data object you are extracting data from.
Step 6. Select
TO Connection, Format (if needed), and object (for example, database table) to load data into.
Step 7. Click
MAPPING and optionally enter
Source query (you don't need a query if you are extracting data from the Bing Ads data object unconditionally).
Step 8. Optionally define the per-field Mapping.
Step 9. Add more transformations if needed.
