Connecting to a standard data source

1. Introduction

Contiamo offers a number of connectors to standard data sources such as Google Analytics or Facebook Insights. Below is a non-exhaustive list of available connectors, as we are constantly adding new ones:

2. Installing a standard connector

In the Data sources view of the Manage section of your project, click on + Add new to add a connector to a standard data source.

add_new_app

Pick a connector and our installation wizard will guide you through the setup. The typical installation will unfold as follows.

You will be prompted to connect to the external data source using your own account information. Clicking on the Connect to button will open a new window where you can log into your account. Your login credentials will not be shared with us. However, you may be asked to share information with us. We need this information in order to integrate the data into Contiamo.

After you log in, you will be returned to our website, and the installation wizard will take you through the final setup:

That’s it! The new data source is installed and ready to use.

3. Further help

You can always suggest new connectors to support@contiamo.com. However, we are only able to implement connectors for reasonably popular data sources.

You can also add your own data in Contiamo, such as custom data or events sent from your app.

If you would like to integrate data from your own databases, please get in touch with us at support@contiamo.com.
