Prerequisites

To connect to your App Annie account and create a DataSet, you must have the email address you use to log into App Annie, as well as your App Annie password.

Connecting to Your App Annie Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the App Annie Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

The Domo App Annie connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing App Annie accounts in Domo) to open the App Annie OAuth screen where you can enter your App Annie credentials. Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new App Annie DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into App Annie when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of Facebook or switch accounts (using the Switch Accounts option in the OAuth screen).

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
