Why Search for an Advertiser?
When you are working with campaigns and flights, you may wish to look for a specific advertiser that you want to review in order to make changes or updates. Instead of performing a
GET API call and have all advertisers returned in a JSON object, you can instead search for a specific advertiser to limit the number of results returned, and in turn, return the advertiser you would like returned.
This API call returns advertiser properties via a search on the advertiser's name.

When using the Search Advertiser API endpoint, it is important to understand the syntax required to make the request. Because the Kevel API is a RESTful API, there is a specific request format that must be followed to ensure the endpoint can process the request. The format is:

https://api.kevel.co- the URL for the request.
v1- the API version.
advertiser- the API endpoint being called.
search- the key/value pair that you want to use to locate the specific advertiser.
