Intro

SearchForce is a paid search and social media ad management platform for niche digital marketers. Use Domo's SearchForce connector to view your ad management data within Domo. API documentation for SearchForce is not available online, but you can visit their website at https://www.searchforce.com/

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

  • Your SearchForce username

  • A SearchForce security token

To obtain a security token, please reach out to your SearchForce representative.

Connecting to Your SearchForce Account

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

Field

Description

Environment

Username

Once you have entered valid SearchForce credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new SearchForce 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.

Details Pane

This pane contains two primary menus, Report Type and Report, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.

Days Back to End At
