Before the data can be collected to your shiny new Integration, the latter must be connected to the data source account of yours to have, well, an access to that data.
Connecting it is as easy as logging into your social network account, except for a few Integrations whose data sources also require various kinds of API keys, tokens, etc. But no worries, we've gathered the connection instructions with the interface screenshots in the corresponding section (Data Sources Connection on your left) so that you wouldn't have to spend much time on it.
Getting back to your new TikTok Integration, let's imagine you're connecting it to your TikTok account, because, kindly reminder:
For the data sources, we are using fake ones with fake data, hence those steps that involve creating an Integration and connecting it to the data source cannot be recreated.
So, let's move on to the business. As you remember, we finished the previous step here:
Actually the + CREATE AUTH CONNECTOR button's title is pretty self-explanatory, but let's honor the step by step method and get to using it.
Create Auth Connector
So, click the + CREATE AUTH CONNECTOR button and enter the connector's name.
Each connector has only one set of credentials and can connect multiple Integrations to the data source account using it.
Let's leave it be a New TikTok connector. Click UPDATE to finish.
You have created the connector, however it is of no use now as it doesn't contain your account's credentials. Let's move on to entering those.
For the connector to work, the account's credentials must be entered in it.
After you've entered your account's credentials, there is no way they can be read by anyone in or outside JustControl.it as they're stored in the AWS Secrets service that has no "read" functionality.
Please note that it also means that the creds cannot be restored once deleted.
Once you're done, the connector button will change its appearance and you'll see this:
That means the connector's being used, you Integration how has access to the data source's data and you can proceed to collecting it.
