Creating the Data Source Name

This section describes how to edit the DSN configuration and then authenticate and connect to Pinterest APIs.

Editing the DSN Configuration

You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to edit the DSN configuration. Note that the DSN is created during the installation process, as described in Installing the Connector.

Complete the following steps to edit the DSN configuration:

  1. Select Start > Search, and enter ODBC Data Sources in the Search box.
  2. Choose the version of the ODBC Administrator that corresponds to the bitness of your Power BI Desktop installation (32-bit or 64-bit).
  3. Click the System DSN tab.
  4. Select the system data source and click Configure.
  5. Edit the information on the Connection tab and click OK.

Connecting to Pinterest

Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer's platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH, OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL parameters will be set as connection properties to your driver.

See Using OAuth Authentication for other OAuth authentication flows.

Next Step

See Getting Data for the next step, which is connecting to the data that you want to work with.
