Troubleshooting

Failed to Add/Update a Custom Audience - Error "2650"

Issues: While adding users using the Add Emails/Users to a Custom Audience module, it returns the following error:

  •   Error "2650" 
  •   Failed to Update Custom Audience
  •   (#2650) Failed to update the custom audience: This audience was created from data source FILE_IMPORTED.MULTI_HASHES, which does not support data source FILE_IMPORTED.HASHES_OR_USER_IDS. (2650, OAuthException )

Reason: Facebook Custom Audiences won't let Integromat add emails or users unless the Custom Audience were created by Integromat. This error indicates that the selected Custom Audience wasn't created by Integromat, but by another platform or via manual upload.

 

Solution: 

  1. Create a custom audience from Integromat using Create Custom Audience or other modules using a scenario. 
  2. Now go back to your previous scenario, and add your member to that newly created custom audience.

If you continue to receive this response, you may need to accept Facebook Custom Audience Terms and Condition in each of your ad accounts. You can follow the steps below.

 

Facebook Ad Account:

1. Open your Facebook’s Custom Audiences Terms.
2. Select your Ad Account under the Account dropdown.
3. Click Accept.
4. Open your Facebook’s Business Tools Terms.
5. Select your Ad Account under the Account dropdown.
6. Click Accept.
