Creating a data source using Buffer

To create a data source using Buffer, you need to accomplish 3 tasks:

  • Start the data source creation process.
  • Authenticate with Buffer.
  • Write a query and enter it in Klipfolio.

Step 1: Start the data source creation process

To create a data source using Buffer, go to the Connector Gallery page in Klipfolio and select Buffer.

Step 2: Authenticate with Buffer

  1. Click the Connect new account link.
  2. Enter your Buffer username and password when prompted.
  3. After logging in, you will be prompted to allow Klipfolio to access your Buffer account.
  4. Name and save your OAuth Credentials.

Step 3: Write the query and enter it in Klipfolio

Refer to the Buffer API Docs as you are writing a query.

  1. In Klipfolio on the REST/URL page, at URL, enter a query. For example: https://api.bufferapp.com/1/profiles.json
