Intro

Nielson Music Connect delivers granular and up-to-date data across multiple measurement metrics for artists, albums and songs as a complete view of performance and trends. Use Domo's Nielsen Music Connect connector to retrieve data for barcodes, charts, data feeds, and ISRCs. To learn more about the Nielsen Music Connect API, visit their page (https://portal.developer.nielsen.com/home).

You connect to your Nielsen Music Connect account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Nielsen Music Connect connector user interface.
