Hi team! Not sure if this is the right place to ask this.... If I wanted to sync data from Instagram Ads, would I use the Facebook Marketing source connector? Or would I need to create a new connector to do that? I am new to using Facebook's APIs and am finding them mildly confusing 👀 💦

Hi! Yes, I do see there is an instagram connector, but that is not for Instagram Ads specifically
these are the streams enabled by the existing Instagram connector - none of them are related to Instagram Ads

oh i see your question now!
I’m actually not sure if the FB marketing API is pulling it. I would guess yes from the docs (there doesn’t seem to be a difference in the URLs used) but I’m not 100% sure

I see. "I would guess yes" is also as far as I got, but I was hoping to find out for sure rather than assuming 😅

Hello, I am also interested in this. @Emily Cogsdill have you been able to find out in the meantime which connector to get Instagram Ads data from? I would very grateful for your insight.

hi @Vincent Koppen! Unfortunately my team hasn’t yet had the chance to test using the FB Marketing connector for Instagram Ads. (We are working with a lot of different data sources and this one got bumped to the backlog… for 9 months!) If you are able to test it out I’d definitely be interested to hear how it goes!

We are using the Facebook Marketing connector now and indeed it also delivers data about Instagram Ads!
