The Create connection pane then asks you to name the new connection.

Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the Square connection.
4. Save and authorize
Once you have configured the Square connection, you have a couple options for continuing:
- Save and authorize – click this button to open a browser instance, log in to Square, and verify your settings
- Cancel – click to exit without saving any new changes
Review the summary of permissions, and click Allow.
Once you have confirmed the connection in Square, the new browser window closes to return you to integrator.io. The new connection will be applied to the current source or destination app, if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
