With the Facebook Ads API, you have the possibility to fetch a creative preview. When selected, DataTap will store a screenshot of the preview as .png file as provided by Facebook and generate a URL to access the this file. To generate and store these screenshots select which previews you want to fetch under Calculated Fields
Please note that dynamic ads screenshots are not supported by Facebook, the API will only return a blank page for these type of ads. If you are trying to get a preview for dynamic ads, please select ad_preview_instagram_standard instead.
If you get the following screenshot, it means that DataTap was not able to successfully store this screenshot. You have the possibility to manually invalidate it, and DataTap will refetch it again.

- You need to have the role Datastream Manager
- Navigate to https://STACKNAME.adverity.com/imgsrv/storedscreenshot/
- You will see a list of all screenshots, the ad title and the image stored
- To manually invalidate an expired screenshot, select the expired screenshot(s) and click Invalidate
