Microsoft: Export Audience

Sync your Lytics audiences with Microsoft Advertising customer match lists to target those users in the Microsoft Advertising platform.

Integration Details

This integration utilizes the Bing Ads API to send user data. Once the export is started the job will:

  1. Request a Bulk Upload URL from Microsoft in the selected Customer Account.
  2. Build up a CSV of emails, hashing non-hashed emails with SHA256 encryption, and after 8 minutes, uploading the file to the supplied bulk upload URL.
  3. Check the status of the upload via the Bulk Upload Status and report any errors.
  4. The first upload will create a new customer match list in Microsoft Advertising with the configured List Name along with a system generated description containing the Lytics audience name and the job ID.
  5. Sleep for the rest of the hour before sending another batch of emails.


Lytics exports the following required field to Microsoft.
