All accounts which your credentials have access to should be available here. If they are not, please check the credentials selected / configured by you. While you can add multiple accounts, the table size may become too large and so it is advisable to add one account per pipeline and use Union queries in the data warehouse to join the data for consumption
Dimensions

Select the dimensions that you would like to fetch from the Facebook Ads platform. You can click on View Schema anytime to see the schema of the table being created.

Each of the selected dimension will create one or more columns in the database table in the destination warehouse. For a complete list of all the available dimensions along with their explanation refer this link.
