To get the permalink of a Facebook ad using the Facebook API, you can follow these steps:

  1. Obtain the necessary access token for your Facebook app. This token should have access to the Ads Management API.
  2. Make a GET request to the Facebook API endpoint for retrieving the ad creative's fields. The endpoint will be in the following format:
1
/{ad_creative_id}


Replace {ad_creative_id} with the ID of the ad creative you want to get the permalink for.

  1. In the response, look for the link_url field. This field contains the permalink of the ad.


Here's an example using the Facebook Graph API in Python:

 1

 5

 9
10

import requests

access_token = '<your_access_token>'
ad_creative_id = '<your_ad_creative_id>'

url = f'https://graph.facebook.com/v13.0/{ad_creative_id}'
params = {
    'fields': 'link_url',
    'access_token': access_token
}

response = requests.get(url, params=params)
data = response.json()

permalink = data['link_url']
print(permalink)


Replace <your_access_token> with your actual access token and <your_ad_creative_id> with the ID of the ad creative you want to get the permalink for.


Note: The Ads Management API requires the appropriate permissions and roles to access ad creative data. Make sure your access token has the necessary permissions to access the ad creative and that your app has been approved for access to the Ads Management API.
