Instagram helps users to advertise their business and reach the next customers with precise targeting and actionable insights.
Set up a connection
This video demonstrates creating an Instagram connection.
After you start the connection, you have to configure it in the Create connection panel and must complete all of the required * authentication settings:
|Name your connection *||Enter a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection. A unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting it from a list of the connections in your account.|
|OAuth 2.0 client *||
Select the OAuth 2.0 client that stores the client ID and client secret provided to you by Instagram ads.
Scopes are OAuth 2.0 permissions that the Instagram Ads API defines to limit access to your account.
Tip: This connector documentation describes only the settings shown for the Simple view. For the corresponding HTTP settings, see OAuth 2.0 auth universal connector documentation.
