Shopify Connector Setup
Shopify Connector Setup
The Shopify connector allows you to integrate Shopify into your data flow by pushing or pulling data from Shopify. Follow the steps below to connect CData Arc to Shopify.
Establish a Connection
To allow Arc to use data from Shopify, you must first establish a connection to Shopify. There are two ways to establish this connection:
- Add a Shopify connector to your flow. Then, in the settings pane, click Create next to the Connection drop-down list.
- Open the Arc Settings page, then open the Connections tab. Click Add, select Shopify, and click Next.
- The login process is only required the first time the connection is created.
- Connections to Shopify can be re-used across multiple Shopify connectors.
Enter Connection Settings
After opening a new connection dialogue, follow these steps:
Enter a name for the connection.
A new window opens for logging into Shopify. Enter your credentials and log in.
If prompted, grant permissions for Arc to connect to Shopify. You will then return to Arc.
Click Add Connection to finalize the connection.
In the Connection drop-down list of the connector configuration pane, select the newly-created connection.
Click Save Changes.
Select an Action
After establishing a connection to Shopify, you must choose the action that the Shopify connector will perform. The table below outlines each action and where it belongs in an Arc flow.
|Action||Description||Position in Flow|
|Upsert||Inserts or updates Shopify data. By default, if a record already exists in Shopify, an update is performed on the existing data in Shopify using the values provided from the input.||End|
|Lookup||Retrieves a value from Shopify and inserts that value into an already-existing Arc message in the flow.
The Lookup Query determines what value the connector will retrieve from Shopify. It should be formatted as a SQL query against the Shopify tables.
|Select||Retrieves data from Shopify and brings it into Arc.
You can use the Filter panel to add filters to the Select. These filters function similarly to WHERE clauses in SQL.
|Execute Stored Procedures||Treats data coming into the connector as input for a stored procedure, and then passes the result down the flow.
You can click the Show Sample Data button to provide sample inputs to the selected Stored Procedure and preview the results.
