**Update May 25, 18:00 Helsinki time - Due to technical issues we were unable to deploy this on the stated date. We will update this article with the new date as soon as we have it. Apologies for any confusion.**
In preparation for the upcoming deprecation of Pinterest API v4, we'll be making several changes to the Pinterest Ads data source on May 25, 2023. These changes require action to keep queries and transfers running after the deprecation of v4 on June 30.
The new Pinterest API v5 requires a different authorization flow, and the older authentication tokens won't be compatible in the future. Starting on May 25, you can reauthenticate using the standard steps to generate a v5-compatible authentication token.
You'll have up until June 30, 2023, to reauthenticate. After that, your queries will start to fail when the older API is deprecated.
In addition to the authentication changes, the following fields are no longer available in the API v5 and will be marked as deprecated. Please remove them from your reporting:
- Advertiser created date
- Advertiser is one-tap
- Advertiser type
- Advertiser updated date
- Business address
- Is a test account
- Is agency
- Is paying agency
- Merchant ID
- Represented country
- VAT exempt number
- VAT number
What you need to do
Between May 25 and June 30, reauthenticate the Pinterest Ads connector using these instructions. Failure to do so will cause queries to fail after the v4 API is deprecated on June 30.
If you're using any of the deprecated fields, remove those from your reporting, as they will return empty data after May 25.
