Authorization Summary

The Authorization Summary provides important details about each authorization to help ensure an integration is properly set up to enable data to flow in and out of Lytics. At the top of the summary page, you’ll see the following information:

  • Health: Indicates whether the authorization is valid and active.
  • Authorization ID: The identification number associated with this authorization.
  • Provider: The third-party tool that this authorization connects to Lytics.
  • Method: Indicates how the authorization was made such as API keys, OAuth, personal or business users, etc.
  • Owner: Lytics user who created the authorization.
  • Created: The date the authorization was initially created.
  • Updated: The date the authorization was most recently edited.

What determines authorization health?

Lytics checks the status of authorizations daily to help you proactively resolve authorization issues. Our API will return one of three possible statuses, depending on the data available for your provider:

  • Healthy: The authorization is valid and active.
  • Unhealthy: The authorization is invalid and inactive.
  • Not Available: The authorization status is unknown.

If your authorization is marked Unhealthy, this means Lytics was unable to verify that it has the requisite access and permissions. Visit the Authorization page for your provider and confirm that the authorization credentials you entered have the necessary permissions in the external tool.

If adjusting permissions in the external tool does not apply or is not an option, you may need to create a new authorization to use with your jobs in Lytics, and you can optionally delete the unhealthy authorization.

Edit or Delete Authorizations

You can now edit or delete authorizations directly in the Lytics UI, using the buttons at top right of each authorization summary page. The edit option allows you to rename the authorization and revise the description, but the configuration options cannot be changed. If you need a different configuration, you will need to create a new authorization and you can delete the previous one.

Activity Metrics

Once metrics are available for each authorization, this chart will become populated with the number of requests made using the authorization. You can adjust the date window and toggle to view the metrics at an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis depending on the data available.

Note that authorization metrics are currently only available for select providers (including Facebook, Iterable, Salesforce, SendGrid, and others) but metrics support is being added for all providers. authorization summary activity metrics
