Creating a data source using Localytics

To create a data source using Localytics, you need to accomplish four tasks:

  • Start the data source creation process
  • Craft a query and enter it into Klipfolio
  • Find your API Key and Secret
  • Authenticate and complete the data source creation process

Note: This guide assumes that you already have an active Localytics account.

Step 1: Start the data source creation process

To create a data source using Localytics, go to the New Data Source page in Klipfolio and select the REST/URL connector option.

Step 2: Craft your query and enter it into Klipfolio

To craft a query, you will need to utilize Localytics API documentation to help you get started on crafting a query.

Here is a sample query to help you get started:

GET https://api.localytics.com/v1/apps

Copy and paste your completed query URL from Localytics into Klipfolio.

Step 3: Find your API key

If you have not requested an API Key, you can submit a request by email to support@localytics.com. You can find your API Key and Secret Key by logging into your account, going to Settings and clicking on the API tab.

Step 4: Authenticate and complete the data source creation process

Once you have completed your query:

  1. At Data Format, select JSON.
  2. At Method, select GET or POST.
  3. In the Authentication (OAuth, 2-Step, X-WSSE, or Basic) menu, under Type, select Basic HTTP Authentication.
  4. At Username, enter your API Key
  5. At Password, enter your Secret Key
  6. Select Submit.
    Note: In addition to your unmodelled data source, you can create a modelled version of your data source at this stage. To create a modelled data source, ensure that the checkbox next to Model this data source is selected before clicking Continue.
