Basecamp 3 Connector

Version 8

 

Intro

Basecamp 3 is a web-based project management tool developed by Basecamp and launched in 2004. Use Domo's Basecamp 3 connector to retrieve data about Basecamp 3 entities such as people, events, campfires, clients, and so on. To learn more about the Basecamp 3 API, visit their page (https://github.com/basecamp/bc3-api).

You connect to your Basecamp 3 account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Basecamp 3 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 Basecamp 3 account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username or email address you use to log into Basecamp 3

  • The password you use to log into Basecamp 3

Alternatively, if you used a Google account to set up your Basecamp 3 account, use the credentials associated with that Google account.

Connecting to Your Basecamp 3 Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Basecamp 3 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 Basecamp 3 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 Basecamp 3 accounts in Domo) to open the Basecamp 3 OAuth screen where you can enter your Basecamp 3 username/email address and password. Once you have entered valid Basecamp 3 credentials and authorized Domo to connect to Basecamp 3, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Basecamp 3 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 Basecamp 3 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 Basecamp 3.

Details Pane

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