Configure a connection

When you first add a card to a Flow, you'll need to create a configuration to authenticate against that third-party API. The configuration will allow you to connector to your account, save your account information, and reuse that configuration when you build any other Flow with that connector. By creating that configuration, you don't have to sign in every time you want to build a Flow with this Connector. Instead, use the configuration you have already set up. You can create and save multiple configurations and share them with your teammates.

For existing connections, see View the Connections page.

To set up a new configuration for a connector:

  1. In the Account Nickname field, enter a value for this specific connection. This should be unique. If you are connecting multiple accounts to the same connector, you'll be able to tell them apart.

  2. Enter necessary credentials for the connector. This may be a domain, an API token, or an Access Key and Access Secret. Connectors vary in their security requirements.

  3. Click Create to complete the configuration. This may prompt you to use your credentials to log in on the connector's web site.
