Sprout Social API Token and Label
Before accessing the Analytics API, your account must be provisioned for API use by your Sprout account representative. Once the account is provisioned, you must obtain an access token. To do so, the Account Owner must log in to the Sprout web app and obtain the access token via an account settings dialog. The Account Owner can create new access tokens via the dialog, view existing access tokens or invalidate existing tokens (i.e. prevent the tokens from being used for client requests).
- Log in to Sprout and navigate to Settings.
- Scroll down to the reporting section and click API Tokens.
- Accept Sprout’s Analytics API Terms of Service, if you haven’t already.
- Click Create API Token in the upper left corner.
- Enter a name for your token.
- Copy the token for use. Be sure to store this securely.
Twitter Data: Twitter Content End User License Agreement
NOTE: Twitter has additional review and compliance requirements around exposing data through the Sprout Analytics API. You’re required to undergo a brief Twitter review and approval before being able to access their Twitter data through the Sprout Analytics API.
Contact your Sprout Social account representative to initiate the review process with Twitter. After Twitter approves your use case, the Account Owner needs to accept the Analytics API Twitter Content End User License Agreement. This appears at the top of the API Tokens settings page.
