This guide explains how to collect data from Idealo. To learn how to collect data from a different data source, go back to the Available data sources in Adverity overview.

Limitations

Collecting data from Idealo comes with the following limitations:

  • You can only retrieve data starting from January 2, 2023 due to the Idealo API limitations.

  • Idealo can collect a maximum of 1 million rows per single report. To fetch more data than this, split your fetch into smaller date ranges in the Initial Fetch step of creating a datastream.

Creating a datastream to collect data from Idealo

The basics of creating a datastream to collect data from any data source are explained in our guide to Creating a datastream. This guide contains information about the specific steps to create a datastream to fetch data from Idealo.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Idealo

  1. If you choose Access using your credentials or Access using someone else's credentials, in Set up or edit Shops, you or the person granting access must choose one of the following options:

    • Choose Grant access to all Shops, including those created in the future to allow Adverity to access all existing Shops and all Shops created in the future.

    • Choose Select specific Shops to which you want to grant access to determine the specific Shops that you want Adverity to access. Adverity will not automatically have access to Shops created in the future. You will need to grant Adverity access to any Shops created in the future.

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to Idealo, all the Shops available to you using your credentials will be visible in the Authorizations page to all Adverity users with permission to edit this authorization.

    If someone else uses their credentials to grant Adverity access to Idealo, the same applies to the Shops available using their credentials.

    This is important to consider if you do not want all Adverity users with permission to edit the authorization to be able to see the details of the Shops. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
