Report type

In the ReportType parameter, specify the type of report. The report type affects which fields are available and how the data is grouped.

For example, if you set the SEARCH_QUERY_PERFORMANCE_REPORT type, the report data will be grouped by AdGroupId and Query. Note that grouping data by fields does not automatically add these fields to the report. The report contains only the fields that are listed in the FieldNames parameter.

The most general report type is CUSTOM_REPORT. It doesn't add any groupings.

The table lists the report types.
