Getting an Existing Apps Admob Ad Unit ID

If you have upgraded your AdMob account to the new interface, and imported your legacy AdMob data, you will notice some changes to the terminology and identifiers that are used now. In the legacy AdMob interface, the previously used Publisher ID has now been replaced with what's called an Admob Ad unit ID, which is the new unique identifier for an ad unit. While the Publisher ID value still exists in AdMob, it now serves a different purpose.Appy Pie sAppy Pie supports both formats of these ID values, however any new apps you create in the new AdMob interface will only generate the 'Admob Ad unit ID'. Any apps that have been imported from your old AdMob account will contain both the new 'Admob Ad unit ID' and 'Legacy Publisher ID' values. You can find these values by selecting the 'Monetize\ tab, clicking 'All app' along the left, and selecting the app whose ID you want. There you will find both IDs listed under the app name in the 'Ad unit' column.

While updating your AdMob ID for legacy apps is not required, Google does recommend it. For complete details on AdMob's upgrade, please refer to AdMob's Upgrade Guide.
