Changes the advertiser parameters and the user settings for the advertiser's representative.

  1. Request
  2. Response

Any representative of an advertiser can edit the advertiser's parameters and their own personal settings.

The advertiser's chief representative can also edit the settings of another representative. To do this, pass the representative's username in the Client-Login request header.



The ClientInfo, Notification, and Phone parameters belong to the user who is a representative of the advertiser:

  • The user the request is made on behalf of, if the request is in the name of any representative of the advertiser and the HTTP Client-Login header is not included in the request.
  • The user whose username is specified in the HTTP Client-Login header, if the request is in the name of the advertiser's chief representative and the request includes the HTTP Client-Login header.

The Settings parameter is related to the advertiser, regardless of who the representative is.
