Authentication type (required): Select Token as the authentication type for the connection. The form changes depending on which authentication type you choose.
Subdomain (required): You can find your subdomain by logging in to your portal. Enter the URL that displays in your browser after logging in.

- Log in to your Pipedrive account, click your profile image.
- On the top right corner, click Personal Preferences.
- Click the API tab.
- From here, you can generate a new token or use the existing one.
C. Edit advanced Pipedrive settings
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the Pipedrive connection.
D. Test the connection
Once you have configured the Pipedrive connection, you have a few options for continuing:
- Save – click this button to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account
- Save & close – click to test and save the connection and exit the Create connection pane
- Cancel – click to exit without saving any new changes
- Test connection – click this button to verify that your new connection is free of errors
When you test or save the connection, it is verified before continuing.
The new connection is now successfully added to your account. It 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.
