Strava Connector

Version 14

 

Intro

Strava is a website and mobile app used to track athletic activity via GPS. You can use Domo's Strava connector to compile reports about physical activities for yourself and your friends. To learn more about the Strava API, visit their page (https://strava.github.io/api/).

The Strava 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 connect to your Strava account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Strava 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.

Primary Use Cases

Use this connector to measure your activity and progress over time, as well as compare to your Strava friends.

Primary Metrics

  • Elevation gained

  • Activity time

  • Max speed

  • Average speed

  • Segment performance

  • Activity log

Primary Company Roles

Appropriate for any role

Average Implementation Time

Less than 1 (can probably be implemented in a few minutes)

Ease of Use (on a 1-to-10 scale with 1 being easiest)

Best Practices

Use to create pages of exercise data and track exercise progress over time. This connector also powers the Strava Quickstart in the Appstore, and can be used to create relevant cards from varying reports with very little effort.

Prerequisites

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

  • The username or email address you use to log into Strava

  • The password you use to log into Strava

You can also connect to your Strava account by signing into Facebook and indicating that you want to create a connection to Strava.  

Connecting to Your Strava Account

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

The Domo Strava connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing Strava accounts in Domo) to open the Strava OAuth screen where you can enter your Strava credentials or sign into Facebook and create a connection to Strava. Once you have connected to Strava and authorized Domo to connect to Strava, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Strava DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into Strava when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of Strava.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary menu, Report, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.

Other Panes

For information about the remaining sections of the connector interface, including how to configure scheduling, retry, and update options, see Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Troubleshooting

  1. Ensure that the credentials correspond to the account you want to connect to.

  2. Verify that the data is updating as expected.
