    • Replication Frequency

    • Replication Start Date

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

  3. Copy and paste the API token you created for your ShipBob account to authenticate the integration and extract data for replication.

    • Then click Authenticate.

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

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

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

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

  6. 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.
