Intro

Outbrain is an advertising platform whose content marketing module offers to help Internet publishers increase web traffic by presenting them with links to related and interesting articles and other trusted content. The Domo Outbrain connector integrates Domo with Outbrain to extract data from the Outbrain Amplify API. Use Domo's Outbrain connector to retrieve data on marketers, budgets, campaigns, promoted links, and performance reporting. For more information about the Outbrain Amplify API, visit their website. (http://docs.amplifyv01.apiary.io/#)

The Outbrain 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.   

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