Intro

Mist is an AI-driven wireless platform that allows companies to simplify wireless operations and/or deliver value-add location services, such as push advertising, wayfinding, visitor analytics, and asset tracking. The Domo Mist connector allows you to gather site metrics for a project or a deployment. To learn more about the Mist API, visit their page (https://api.mist.com/api/v1/docs/Home).

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