LinkedIn Ads Failure: Too Many Entities

I get the following  error message for LinkedIn Ads on a pretty basic download of campaign name and ad title.

Query failed: LinkedIn Ads failure (Request would return too many entities. )

It seems like an issue if we can't download a couple hundred lines of data. Any idea what's going wrong here or how to fix it? If I remove ad title and only do campaigns, it works but I need to see ad-level performance. Seems like that must be possible.

3 people have this problem

This is also happening to me with queries that have been running for months, now all of a sudden saying too many entities

Hi Clayton,

This appeared to be a temporary issue with LinkedIn - can you try again and let us know if you are still getting the error?

-Thank you

Thanks Jessica. Problem still exists. Can't pull any ad fields without the error.

Sorry to hear it's not yet resolved for you. We've re-enagaged the developer to have another look at it this morning. Hopefully we'll have a resolution before the end of the day here.

-Thank you

The developer just deployed another fix for this issue this afternoon. If you were still affected, please close and reopen the sheet to get the latest version and try again.

-Thank you

Thanks I am able to download again. I still don't see LinkedIn Ad Name. Is this in the works? This might also be called Creative Name. This is pretty critical for analysis. Thanks!

Awesome, working on our end now as well!

Any plans on adding the new 'beta' metrics like;

  • Video Views
  • Video Views at 25%
  • Video Views at 50%
  • Video Views at 75%
  • Video Completions

I think the field I'm requesting is called Sponsored Content Name. That's the field where advertisers can name their creatives for organization / reporting purposes, like "Ad name" for Facebook Ads.

For Clayton - as noted on the other post, the dev was actively checking that today and hopefully will have an update.

For Michael - Let me check to see if these are available in the API (if yes, we should be able to add them).

-Thank you

The main issue has been resolved so I'm marking this as such.

For the other metrics issues - those have been handled in their own tickets (I made a new one for Michael's ask and escalated it to the dev for review).

-Thank you

Hi Jessica,

I also started receiving today an error code 400 with the message "Request would return too many entities" as a response from Linkedin's API.

I manage to pull campaigns with no issues, but when requesting ad creatives (path "adCreativesV2?q=search") I get the above error. 

Is it still considered as a temporary issue?

Hi Ron,

It was determined not to be a temporarily issue and we deployed a fix a while back for it (it's mentioned in this thread earlier). If it has returned, it is likely a new problem and we kindly ask you submit a new private ticket for this so we can investigate.

-Thank you
