Creating an Instagram Story Data Source
To create an Instagram Story data source, navigate to Sources at the top left of the Dataddo app.
Then click on New Sources from the top right corner.
From the list of connectors, choose the Instagram Story connector.
You will be requested to give Dataddo authorization to connect with your Instagram account.
Having a problem with the authorization process?
After you authorize the connection to your Instagram account you will be asked to configure it. If you have more than one Instagram account connected to Dataddo, you can select the one you need. You will also be asked to select which Account you would like to retrieve data.
Next, you can name your data source, and select the required attributes and the maximum number of posts.
To help you with the snapshot mapping, we make it easier for you to create a connection to the destination based on your preference.
- Click on the option "Dashboarding App" if you want your data to connect to applications, like Google Data Studio, Power BI, or Tableau.
- Click on the option "Data Warehouse", If you want your data to be sent to warehouse storage, like MySQL, Big Query, or PostgreSQL.
- If you are already experienced with the snapshotting setup, you can go ahead and process without selecting the two options.
Lastly, you configure your snapshotting preferences, choosing Snapshotting frequency, and Snapshotting retention. Click on "See Preview" to review all the selections made by you before finalizing and creating the Data Source.
Now you are all set and ready. Click on See Preview to review all the selections made by you before saving the Data Source using the buttons in the top right corner - either Save and Exit or Save & Create Flow. To create a flow, please follow our Creating a data flow guide.
