Creating a datastream to collect data from Simpli.fi

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 Simpli.fi.

Authorization: Allow Adverity to access Simpli.fi

Before creating an authorization to give Adverity access to Simpli.fi, perform the following actions:

  1. In the Simpli.fi user interface, find your app key and user key.

    Contact Simpli.fi for help finding these keys.

To set up a new authorization to fetch data from Simpli.fi, follow these steps:

  1. In the Authorization step of the datastream wizard, click Access Simpli.fi using your credentials.

  2. Click Next.

  1. In App key, enter your app key.

  2. In User key, enter your user key.

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

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

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

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to Simpli.fi, all the organizations 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 Simpli.fi, the same applies to the organizations 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 organizations. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
