General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.


To connect to your Accellion account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • Your Accellion host name

  • Your Accellion access token

Note: The Accellion API tokens expire after 60 days. So, you will need to re-authenticate once your API token expires after 60 days. 

Connecting to Your Accellion Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Accellion 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.
