Connection Authorization

When setting up the connection to Appfigures, you are asked to provide a usernamepassword, and client-key. Whilst username and password are the actual credentials to your account, the client key is obtained by navigating here (make sure that you are still logged in). The best practice is to create a dedicated "service" account (not associated with a particular person).

  • Username - Username is the actual username that you are using to log into the Appfigures app (usually an email address).
  • Password - Password is the actual password that you are using to log into the Appfigures app.

Client Key

  1. Navigate to the official documentation (make sure that you are still logged in).
  2. Click on Create a new client.

    * Broken View / Error Message

    If you cannot see a preview of your data, go back a few steps and check your setup. The most common causes are:

    • Date range - we recommend a smaller date range. If you need to load historical data, check our guide.
    • Invalid metrics, attributes or breakdowns, or their combination - you may not have any values for them.
