Google Doubleclick DFP – Getting the Debug Console When Running in Asynchronous Mode

When trying to find out why a particular ad campaign isn’t being delivered as you thought it should, the DFP documentation indicates that you should apply “google_debug” to the URL and a new window show pop up with the debug information. After digging through documentation and searching Google for a couple of hours without getting this to work, I finally found the relevant part of the DFP documentation.

Here’s the kicker: in the new, improved ad handler (gpt.js) you’ll have to append “google_console=1” in your URL, then press CTRL+F10 to launch the debug console. No google_debug, no google_pubconsole, just google_console and CTRL+F10.

Hopefully this will help someone trying to find out by searching for relevant terms.

  1. Oh my gosh. Thank you. It is TOTALLY ridiculous that this isn’t documented anywhere. I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the console to work for SO LONG, wanting to PUNCH EVERYTHING. Thanks.
