How to Integrate Sprout Social with Daton

This subtopic provides step-by-step instructions to create Sprout Social integrations in Daton, detailing the prerequisites, the integration process, and important notes.


Before starting, ensure you have an active Daton and Sprout Social account.

Task 1: Create an Access Token for Your Sprout Social Account

You must be an Account Owner to create an access token for your Sprout Social account.

  1. Log in to your Sprout Social account and click the Settings icon in the top right corner of the page.

  2. Scroll down to the Reporting section and click API Tokens.

  3. Accept the Sprout’s Analytics API Terms of Service.

  4. Click the Create API Token button in the upper left corner.

  5. Enter a name for your token and click on the Create Token button.

  6. Your API token will be displayed. Copy it and store it securely.

Note the following when creating an API token:

  • Each token has its permissions. When creating a token, you must select the permissions you want the token to have.

  • You can create multiple API tokens. This can be useful if you want to give different users or applications different API access levels.

  • API tokens are sensitive information. It would help to store them securely and not share them with anyone else.

Once you have created an API token, you can use it to access the Sprout Social API. You can use the Sprout Social API to integrate Sprout Social with Daton.

Task 2: Integrate Daton with Sprout Social

  1. Log in to your Daton account and search for Sprout Social in the list of Connectors, then click Configure.

  2. Enter the following details and click Authenticate:

    • Integration Name

      • Optionally, add a description to identify the integration.

    • Replication Frequency

    • Replication Start Date

    Note that the Integration Name will be used to create the integration tables and cannot be modified later.

  3. Optionally, expand the Advanced Configuration Options section and, based on your requirements, modify the options to control the loading behavior of Daton.

  4. Copy and paste the API token you created for your Sprout Social account to authenticate the integration and extract data for replication.

    • Then click Authenticate.

  5. After successful authentication, you will be prompted to choose from the list of available tables. Select the required tables and click Next.

    • Optionally, based on your requirement, select specific options for each selected table.

  6. Select the required fields for each table and click Submit.

    Note that you will be prompted to select the destination for your account.

  7. Select the destination for your store or shop and click Confirm. An integration successful message will be displayed.

Important Note

  • Integrations would begin in the Pending state and change to the Active state once the first job successfully loaded data into the configured warehouse.

  • Users can check job status and process logs from the integration details page by clicking on the integration name in the active list.

  • Users can Re-Authenticate, Edit, Clone, Pause, or Delete the integration at any moment by clicking on settings. You can also adjust the frequency and history of the integration.

  • On the Sources page, click Integration to access each table in your integration. The page also shows the state of each table, the last replicated time, and Reload access buttons.
