Smartsheet Writeback Connector

Intro

Smartsheet is an online project management, productivity and team collaboration SaaS application. Use this connector to export your data from a Domo DataSet to a specified Smartsheet workspace or folder. To learn more about the Smartsheet API, visit their website ( https://smartsheet-platform.github.io/api-docs/ ).

You export data to Smartsheet in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Smartsheet Writeback 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 configure this connector, you will a Domo Client ID and Client Secret. To create a Domo client ID and client secret, do the following:

  1. Navigate to https://developer.domo.com and log in.

  2. Click New Client (found under "My Account" in the top right corner).

  3. Create a new client with Application Scopes of Data and User.

    When you click Create, you will be redirected to the client ID and client secret.

  4. Copy the client ID and client secret, as you will need them soon.

Configuring the Connection

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Smartsheet Writeback 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 Domo developer account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Domo Client ID

Enter your Domo client ID. For steps on obtaining your client ID and client secret, see "Prerequisites," above.

Domo Client Secret

Enter your Domo client ID. For steps on obtaining your client ID and client secret, see "Prerequisites," above.

Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to set up a new Domo-Smartsheet connection. 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 number of fields for specifying your data and indicating where it's going.

Select whether you want to send your Domo DataSet data to a Smartsheet workspace or folder. 

Folder

Prevent Duplicates?

If you check this box, if the connector discovers a file with the same name as the file you are copying, the file will be overwritten.

Domo DataSet ID

Enter the DataSet ID (GUID) for the DataSet you want to copy to a Smartsheet folder or workspace. You can find the ID by opening the details view for the DataSet in the Data Center and looking at the portion of the URL following datasources/. For example, in the URL https://mycompany.domo.com/datasources/845305d8-da3d-4107-a9d6-13ef3f86d4a4/details/overview, the DataSet ID is 845305d8-da3d-4107-a9d6-13ef3f86d4a4. 

Select Filename

Select how you want to choose the file where data will be copied. 

  • Use Input DataSet GUID. The filename will be the number you entered for Domo DataSet ID.

  • Use Input DataSet Name. The filename will be the same as that of the input DataSet.

  • Enter File Name. You will give the file a custom name in the File Name field.
