How to Connect Your Apple Search Ads Account to Appfigures

In order to track your ad spend metrics from Apple Search Ads, Appfigures will need to have access to your Search Ads account.

To enable access to Search Ads, you'll need to link your App Store Connect sub user to your Apple Search Ads accounts. Luckily, Apple made that very easy, and with read-only access, secure.

Note: Managing linked accounts requires the Admin or Owner role. If you are a viewer please share this article with a team member who has the required role.

  1. Start by logging into your Apple Search Ads account.
  2. Select your Basic or Advanced account. If you use both select Advanced. You only need to do this once and both will work.
  3. Click on your name at the top of the page, and then on Settings next to your company name.
  4. Navigate into the User Management tab.
  5. Click the Invite Users button, and enter the email of the App Store Connect account that's linked to your Appfigures account.
  6. For role, select Account Read Only.
  7. Send the invitation, then check your email to accept the invitation.
  8. After accepting the invitation, enter the code Apple provided in the invitation email to complete the signup process.
Important: Make sure you enter the code after clicking the link in the invitation email. Otherwise we will not be able to sync any data.

Once that's done, you can run a manual sync to kick off a sync for Search Ads data. You can sync through Linked Accounts > sync, and uncheck boxes for all except Search Ads.
