This project is a wrapper around node-google-dfp aimed at facilitating repeated interactions with the DFP API in a script.

Getting started

$ npm install node-google-dfp-wrapper
var Dfp = require('node-google-dfp-wrapper');
// These are created by you in the configuration step
var config = require('../local/config')
// These are output by DFP as part of the DFP project authorization step.
var credentials = require('../local/application-creds');
// This is obtained as part of the obtain refresh token step
var refreshToken = config.refreshToken;
var dfp = new Dfp(credentials, config, refreshToken);

How to use

For examples of how to use this library, please refer to https://github.com/spanishdict/example-dfp-line-item-generator

One-time setup


These values are created by you, except for refreshToken. If you do not have one, follow the directions below. Save the file as local/config.json.

 "networkCode": "<network code>",
 "appName": "<Name of your app>",
 "version": "<dfp api version number>",
 "refreshToken": "<refresh token>"

To obtain your network code from DFP. It can be found in your url after you log in to DFP. For example in https://www.google.com/dfp/1027916#delivery, the network code is 1027916.

version is DFP API version. For example v201508.

Obtain refresh token

  1. Prepare DFP project authorization (local/application-creds.json). If you do not have one, follow the directions below.

  2. Run:

cd node_modules/node-google-dfp-wrapper/
$ node generate-authentication-url.js

Go to the url and give authorization. Copy the auth code.

  1. Run the script in "auth code" mode:
$ node generate-refresh-token.js --authCode <auth code>

If you are using this package as a dependency and local/application-creds lives in your project you can pass the config path as an arguments as follow:

$ node node_modules/node-google-dfp-wrapper/generate-authentication-url.js --config $(pwd)'/local/application-creds'
$ node node_modules/node-google-dfp-wrapper/generate-refresh-token.js --config $(pwd)'/local/application-creds' --authCode <auth code>

This will output a refresh token.

DFP project authorization

  1. Log into Google.
  2. Go to https://console.developers.google.com/project.
  3. Make a project for your app.
  4. Go to <https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials?project=.
  5. Click on New Credentials and then on OAuth client ID
  6. Click on Configure consent screen and give your project a name.
  7. Under Application type select Other and give your client a name.
  8. You should now see a new entry under OAuth 2.0 client IDs and a download icon to the far right. Click that icon to download your cerdentials. Save the file as local/application-creds.json. It should look like this, (though you may have to format it):
  "installed": {
    "client_id": "<client id>",
    "project_id": "<project id>",
    "auth_uri": "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth",
    "token_uri": "https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token",
    "auth_provider_x509_cert_url": "https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/certs",
    "client_secret": "<client secret>",
    "redirect_uris": [
