Resources required?


#1

Hello,

I’m looking at the managed sources api and it says that resources are required. If I don’t know what I’m filtering by at that point, do I just leave it blank? Or are certain resources required?

Thank you

Hello,

Before you begin to use managed sources via the API you will need to turn them on via the UI. Once you sign the license agreement and add the managed source you’d like to use on https://app.datasift.com/, these sources will become available for you to use via the API.

My apologies, I misread your question when I responded initially. In order to create a managed source you are required to add a minimum of one resource otherwise you will not be able to create the source. This rule applies to creating sources via either the API or the UI. You can find a list of what resources are required for each type of managed source at the bottom of this page: http://dev.datasift.com/docs/api/rest-api/endpoints/sourcecreate
