eQuest Connector

Intro

eQuest is the world's largest job delivery company, providing global job posting distribution and recruitment services. (It does not have anything to do with horses. ) Use Domo's eQuest connector to retrieve job postings for a specific date or date range.

You connect to your eQuest account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the eQuest connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your eQuest account and create a DataSet, you must have an eQuest API key. For instructions on obtaining an API key, visit https://support.equest.com/index.php...b.page&id=3991.

Connecting to Your eQuest Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the eQuest 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

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your eQuest account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
