Intro

Skimlinks is a powerful marketing tool and content monetization platform for online publishers. Use Domo's Skimlinks connector to make quick decisions to enable key content and drive awareness about your business. To learn more about the Skimlinks API, visit their page (http://developers.skimlinks.com/reporting.html).

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

  • Your Skimlinks customer private key

  • Your Skimlinks customer public key

You can learn how to obtain these keys by visiting http://developers.skimlinks.com/reporting.html

Connecting to Your Skimlinks Account

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

Once you have entered valid Skimlinks credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Skimlinks 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 a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
