Pivotal Tracker Connector

Intro

Pivotal Tracker is an online project planning, tracking and collaboration tool designed specifically by software developers to support the software development process. Use Domo's Pivotal Tracker connector to retrieve data about epics, notifications, projects, and stories. For more information about the Pivotal Tracker API, visit their website. (https://www.pivotaltracker.com/help/api/#top)

The Pivotal Tracker 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 Pivotal Tracker account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Pivotal Tracker 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 Pivotal Tracker account and create a DataSet, you must have a Pivotal Tracker username and password. 

Connecting to Your Outbrain Account

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

Field

Description

User

Password

Once you have entered valid Pivotal Tracker credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Pivotal Tracker 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.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Report menu in which you select a report type. Depending on the report type you select, you may also have the option to specify the number of days back for the report.
