Adtraction connection guide

This guide contains all permissions and requirements for connecting your Adtraction data to Supermetrics. 

You can connect to data sources from the Data sources page on the Supermetrics Hub. On the Hub, you can also share an authentication link to connect to a data source you don't have direct access to.

After you connect to the data source on the Hub, you can use the data source connection in all available destinations.

Required permissions

To connect Supermetrics to Adtraction, you need an Adtraction API token. These are also referred to as API keys.

To generate this token:

  1. Log in to Adtraction.
  2. Navigate to AccountSettings.
  3. Select API from the navigation menu.
  4. Copy the API token. Remember to keep it safe.
