Retarget an Audience

Add a section for page event sources in the code block:

  "type": "page",
  "id": "<PAGE_ID>",

Below is an example of how to create a retargeting audience with signals from your pixel, app, and page events; that is, capture an audience who has visited your vehicle pages belonging to a certain vehicle set.

Page events are only applicable when using Automotive Inventory Ads with an on-Facebook destination.

curl \
  -F 'name=Viewed vechicles in vehicle set in Last 30 days' \
  -F 'subtype=CLAIM' \
  -F 'claim_objective=VEHICLE' \
  -F 'content_type=VEHICLE' \
  -F 'event_sources=[
      "type": "pixel",
      "id": "<PIXEL_ID>"
      "type": "app",
      "id": "<APP_ID>"
  ]' \
  -F 'rule={"vehicle_set_id":{"eq":"<VEHICLE_SET_ID>"}}' \
  -F 'inclusions=[
      "event": "ViewContent",
      "retention": {"min_seconds":0,"max_seconds":2592000}
      "event": "Search",
      "retention": {"min_seconds":0,"max_seconds":2592000}
      "event": "AddToWishlist",
      "retention": {"min_seconds":0,"max_seconds":2592000}
  ]' \
  -F 'exclusions=[{
      "retention": {"min_seconds":0,"max_seconds":2592000}
  }]' \
  -F 'access_token=<ACCESS_TOKEN>' \<API_VERSION>/act_<AD_ACCOUNT_ID>/customaudiences

If successful, an audience ID is returned. You can use this audience ID in the dynamic_audience_ids field at the ad set level when creating ads to retarget people based on your signals.
