AdGear Connector

Intro

AdGear is an online advertising technology company that provides a full stack of real-time advertising products. Use Domo's AdGear connector to retrieve reports from AdGear's Console and Trader APIs. To learn more about these APIs, visit their pages (https://adgear.atlassian.net/wiki/sp...nsole+REST+API and https://adgear.atlassian.net/wiki/sp...rader+REST+API). 

You connect to your AdGear account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the AdGear 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 AdGear account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username for your AdGear account.

  • An AdGear API key.

To generate an API key, do the following:

  1. Log into your AdGear account.

  2. Click your username in the top-right corner of the user interface.

  3. Check the checkbox reading Enable HTTP Digest API?

  4. Save. 
    An API key should now be automatically generated.

Connecting to Your AdGear Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the AdGear 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 AdGear account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
