Article Summary

Authorizers are services you have authenticated within Dataddo. By granting authorization, typically at the admin level or higher, you permit Dataddo to access and retrieve data from your data sources and send this data to your data destination.

How to Add a New Authorizer

On the Authorizers page, click on Authorize New Service and follow the on-screen prompts. You will usually be redirected to the service's login page to authorize the account.

If your service has specific requirements, please see our connector-specific guides. Data sources will usually require filling in API credentials while data destinations will require information like host, database, and other credentials.

Once you log in or fill in the credentials, Dataddo will save it as an authorized service and you will be able to finalize your source or destination configuration.

Alternative Approach to Adding a New Service

Aside from the main method, there's an alternative way to authorize a new account.

Authorize a new account during your data source or data destination creation. Simply click on the Add New Account button on the source or destination creation page, or at the bottom of the drop-down.

Manage Your Authorized Services

On the Authorizers page, you can see all your connected services. Here, you can:

  1. Reauthorize your account.
  2. Delete your authorizer: First delete all sources and destinations for the option to delete an authorizer to show.
  3. Click on the three dots next to your authorizer to
    1. Edit: Modify the authorizer's name or reauthorize the service.
    2. Test: Verify the success of the connection.
    3. Revoke Token: Remove Dataddo's authorization to access your service, preventing data access.

Example error message when testing data

Client error: `POST` resulted in a `400 Bad Request` response: { "error": "invalid_grant", "error_description": "Bad Request" }

How to Reauthorize Your Account

There might be occasions when reauthorization is necessary, such as when:

  • You change your account's password,
  • The token expires,
  • Another error occurs (e.g. your destination breaks).
  1. On the Authorizers page and identify any services labeled as Broken.
  2. [Optional] Test the connection by clicking on the three dots next to the broken authorizer and selecting Test.
  3. Reauthorize by clicking on the key icon next to your authorizer. (Alternatively, click on the three dots and select Edit). Then, follow the provided instructions.

Keep in mind that certain services mandate periodic reauthorization. For instance, your LinkedIn account has to be reauthorized annually.
