Associated Press Connector

Version 27

 

Intro

The Associated Press (AP) is an American multinational nonprofit news agency headquartered in New York City. You can use Domo's Associated Press connector to compile reports containing current Associated Press feed content. For more information about the Associated Press API, see https://developer.ap.org/api-console .

The Associated Press connector is a "Cloud App" connector, meaning it retrieves data stored in the cloud. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other Cloud App connectors by clicking Cloud App in the toolbar at the top of the window.

You create an Associated Press DataSet in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Associated Press 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.
