Installing the R SDK

Version 13

 

Intro

The R SDK is an R package that allows you to transfer data between Domo and R easily, simplifying the process of moving DataSets between the two. You can access the SDK and installation information in the Data Center.  

Times when the R SDK may be the best solution are these:

  • If your data science team is using R for most transformations and needs to get that data into Domo.

  • When you need to do any sort of statistical analysis or data exploration that’s outside of the scope of SQL.

  • If you are already using R scripts for data processing.

  • When you need capabilities beyond SQL for forecasting, text analysis, or other data science tasks.

  • If you require Rapid App prototyping or are creating dynamic reproducible documents/reports. 

This topic takes you through the entire installation and initialization process for the R SDK.

Prerequisites

To install and initialize the R SDK you will need two pieces of information:

  • Your customer instance name, denoted as customer in this documentation. This is the part of your login URL before domo.com. For example, if your Domo login URL was https://modocorp.domo.com, the customer instance name would be modocorp.

  • A Domo Access Token, denoted as domo_access_token in this documentation. This is required to access your Domo instance via the Domo API. A user at your company with an "Admin" security role (or a custom role with "Manage All Company Settings" or "Manage All Access Tokens" enabled) will need to generate this token by going to Admin > Security > Access Tokens in your account and clicking Generate Access Token in the upper right corner.

Note: The R SDK requires httr 1.0.0 or lower and readr 0.2.0 or lower installed in your instance of R.
