Automatic Connector

Important: When referencing this page outside of Knowledge Base, use this link: https://knowledge.domo.com?cid=automatic

Intro

The Automatic app and plug-in car adapter turns just about any car into a connected car. Use Domo's Automatic connector to pull reports about Automatic devices as well as data around vehicles and trips. To learn more about the Automatic API, visit their page (https://developer.automatic.com/api-reference/#introduction).

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

Connecting to Your Automatic Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Automatic 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 Automatic 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 Automatic accounts in Domo) to open the Automatic OAuth screen where you can enter your Automatic credentials. Once you have entered valid Automatic credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Automatic 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 Automatic 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 Automatic.

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.

Menu

Description

Report

Select the Automatic report you want to run. The following reports are available:

Device

Returns information about the authenticated user's Automatic devices.

Trip

Returns information about trips taken in vehicles linked to the authenticated user's Automatic account. 

Vehicle

Returns information about vehicles linked to the authenticated user's Automatic account.

 

Duration 

Select whether you want to pull data for a specific date or a date range. 

Report Date 

Select whether the report data is for a specific date or for a relative number of days back from today. 

Select Specific Date 

Select the date for the report. 

Days Back

Enter the number of past days that should appear in the report.  

Start Date

Specify whether the first date in your date range is a specific or relative date. You select the last date in your range in End Date

End Date

Specify whether the second date in your date range is a specific or relative date. You select the first date in your range in Start Date.  

Select Specific Start Date

Select the first date in your date range. 

Select Specific End Date

Select the second date in your date range. 

Days Back to Start From

Enter the number of the farthest day back that should be represented in the report. Combine with Days Back to End At to create a range of represented days.

For example, if you entered 10 for Days Back to Start From and 5 for Days Back to End At, the report would contain data for 10 days ago up until 5 days ago.

Days Back to End At

Enter the number of the most recent day back that should be represented in the report. Combine with Days Back to Start From to create a range of represented days.

For example, if you entered 10 for Days Back to Start From and 5 for Days Back to End At, the report would contain data for 10 days ago up until 5 days ago.
