Calling Twitter, Linkedin API's to retrieve various metrics using alteryx download tool

Hi folks,

 

I am quite new to Alteryx. Can anyone help on my below problem?

 

Does anyone have any experience working with Facebook Business Manager, LinkedIn Analytics and Twittter Analytics in terms of accessing their APIs to retireve various metrics using alteryx?

I guess OAuth2 will be used but a step y step guide will be very helpful.

 

Best regards,

Karan Jugran

Hi @karanjugran 

 

The Download tool executes cURL requests and you can see examples of how API calls are made using it as well as a step by step walk through here: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Engine-Works/APIs-for-Beginners-Integrate-All-the-Systems/ba-p/8074... 

 

If you are looking into building a custom tool you will want to leverage the Alteryx SDK although this will be much more involved: https://help.alteryx.com/developer-help/python-engine-sdk

Hi @BrandonB,

Thanks for the reply. Earlier I have read this same  https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Engine-Works/APIs-for-Beginners-Integrate-All-the-Systems/ba-p/8074...  article.

 

There's an article by Tasha Alfano https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Engine-Works/REST-APIs-Part-2-Authentication/ba-p/12640.

There's a guy @mcwallendjack he has been facing the same issue.

I am just hoping he has resolved and he's active in the community.

 

Thanks for the reply though I'll see this again

People have already connected to all of these systems thankfully. The Twitter Search tool is actually still available as a deprecated tool if you right click on the pallet and show deprecated tools.

You can right click on this tool to open the macro and see how the workflow was put together.
