Intro

Lithium Technologies provides social customer experience management software for enterprise customers. Use Domo's Lithium connector to retrieve data related to forums, such as leaderboards of kudos authors, lists of visiting users, and so on. To learn more about the Lithium API, visit their website (https://community.lithium.com/t5/Community-API/bd-p/developers-rest-api).

The Lithium connector is a "Cloud App" connector, meaning it retrieves data stored in the cloud. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other Cloud App connectors by clicking Cloud App in the toolbar at the top of the window.

This is the advanced version of the Lithium connector. There is also a standard version that contains fewer reports and configuration options. For more information, see Lithium Connector.

You connect to your Lithium account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Lithium 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.
