You can use the Kintone connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Kintone and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Add the Kintone Connector

To enable Sync to use data from Kintone, you first must add the connector, as follows:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Kintone row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row to open the New Connection page. If the Configure Connection icon is not available, click the Download Connector icon to install the Kintone connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

Authenticate to Kintone

After you add the connector, you need to set the required properties.

  • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

  • URL - Enter the URL for your Kintone account.

CData Sync supports authenticating to Kintone in several ways. Select your authentication method below to proceed to the relevant section that contains the authentication details.


To connect with your user credentials, set the following properties:

  • Auth Scheme: Select Password.

  • User: Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your Kintone account.

  • Password: Enter the password that you use to authenticate to your Kintone account.


To connect with an API token, specify these settings:

  • Auth Scheme - Select APIToken.

  • App Id - Enter your application Id, which is the number of that specific application in the sequence under Apps in Kintone UI dashboard.

  • API Token - Enter your API token. To obtain the token:

    1. Access the specific application that you want and click the Settings icon.

    2. On the App Settings tab, click API Token.

    3. Click Generate to produce the API token.

Complete Your Connection

To complete your connection:

  1. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
