How to connect AccuRanker to Databox


How to connect AccuRanker to Databox

You must have an active AccuRanker subscription in order to access the API and connect the Account in Databox. 

To connect an AccuRanker Account in Databox, go to Data Sources > + New connection. Type AccuRanker in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your AccuRanker login information and authorize the Databox app. 


Pro Tip: In order to connect Accuranker and show the Data Source's name in Databox, information on both "ID" and "Display Name" is required. When connecting Accuranker it's necessary to have the "Display Name" under the Domain added, otherwise the Domain won't be visible in Databox.
Learn more about how to add the "Display Name" for the Domain in Accuranker  here.

How much historical data is synced when you first connect AccuRanker to Databox?

When you connect a new AccuRanker Data Source in Databox, 40 days worth of historical data is initially synced. 

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at help@databox.com.

Pro Tip: Once your AccuRanker Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical AccuRanker data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does AccuRanker data sync in? 

AccuRanker data is synced in UTC.

How often does AccuRanker data sync?

All AccuRanker Data Sources will sync every 12 hours with Databox. Learn more here.
