Intro

Bidlogix provides real time software for online auctions, webcast auctions and asset sales. Use Domo's Bidlogix connector to retrieve lists of auctions, auctioneers, vendors, and more. To learn more about the Bidlogix API, visit their page (https://bidlogix.atlassian.net/wiki/...P/Bidlogix+API).

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

  • Your Bidlogix API key

  • Your Bidlogix API secret

  • Your Bidlogix client ID

  • Your Bidlogix domain

You can find your Bidlogix API key, API secret, and client ID in the Bidlogix admin interface.

Your Bidlogix domain is the URL of your Bidlogix instance, minus the https://. For instance, if your instance was https://mycompany.bidlogix.com, the domain would be mycompany.bidlogix.com

Connecting to Your Bidlogix Account

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