How to connect Vimeo OTT to Databox


How to connect Vimeo OTT to Databox?

To connect a Vimeo OTT Account in Databox, go to  Data Source Connections > + New connection. Type Vimeo OTT 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 a Name for your Vimeo OTT connection in Databox, e.g. Tory's Vimeo OTT Account.

Next, enter the  API key from within your Vimeo OTT portal. API keys can be created on the Platforms page of your Vimeo OTT CMS. 

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

When you connect a new Vimeo OTT Data Source in Databox, no historical data is initially synced. 

Pro Tip: Once your Vimeo OTT 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 Vimeo OTT data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Vimeo OTT data sync in? 

Vimeo OTT data is synced in EST.
