With the Planful® connector, you can use commands in a chain to interact with Planful, formerly Host Analytics®. For example, with this connector, you can:
- Run and retrieve Planful reports
- Load, transfer, and clear data in Planful
- Retrieve segment data from Planful
To enable the connection, the connector uses the Planful REST API, secured with basic username and password authentication. To set up the connector, you'll need:
- A designated integration user set up in Planful for the connector, with Web Service Access enabled
- The integration user's authentication credentials
- The code and server URL of the Planful tenant to connect to
- Web Services enabled in the Planful tenant
