Stack Exchange Connector

Version 2


Important: When referencing this page outside of Knowledge Base, use this link:


Stack Exchange is a network of question and answer websites on diverse topics in many different fields, each site covering a specific topic, where questions, answers, and users are subject to a reputation award process. Use Domo's Stack Exchange connector to retrieve lists of questions and answers; user reputation information; earned badges; and so on. To learn more about the Stack Exchange API, visit their page (

Note: The user interface for building this connector is in Beta and not yet available in our Connectors listing in the Data Center, meaning you will not be able to find the connector on your own. However, if you would like we at Domo are more than happy to grant you access to the connector so that you can begin using it to pull your data into Domo. Please don't hesitate to reach out to to get access to the Beta for this connector. For contact information, see Getting Help.

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


To connect to your Stack Exchange account and create a DataSet, you must have credentials from one of the following social media networks:

  • Stack Exchange

  • Google

  • Facebook

  • Yahoo

Connecting to Your Stack Exchange Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Stack Exchange 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

The Domo Stack Exchange connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing Stack Exchange accounts in Domo) to open the Stack Exchange OAuth screen where you can enter credentials from Stack Exchange, Google, Facebook, or Yahoo. Once you have entered valid credentials and connected to Stack Exchange, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Stack Exchange 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.

Note: If you are already logged into Stack Exchange, Google, Facebook, or Yahoo when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of the social media website.

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.
