Using Addigy to monitor your client's Apple machines? Awesome, we now integrate with Addigy to get device stats! Here's a quick document to help you get setup with BrightGauge and Addigy.
Step 1 - Log in to your BrightGauge Account
If you haven’t created an account yet, go here to get started.
Once logged in, to get started:
- New Accounts
On first login, from the account Overview page, click on the "Add a Datasource" button:
Or, from the first "Welcome to BrightGauge" dashboard page, click on the "Connect a Datasource".
- Existing Accounts
Click on the "Data" menu at the top righthand corner of the screen, and select "Datasources" from the drop down menu:
Find the the Addigy datasource under "All" or under the appropriate category:
Whether a new account or an existing, clicking on the Addigy datasource logo will bring you to the page below. Keep it open as we'll come back to it in Step 3.
Step 2 - Create an API key in Addigy
Now we need to go to Addigy to create an API key. To do this you'll need to be an administrator on your account.
- Login to your Addigy account. At the left is a Support expanding menu, click on it and go to Integrations (#1).
- In Integrations page, click on + Add New API Integration to the top right (#2)
- Name the integration whatever you want, but for the ability to refer back to it later, referencing BrightGauge in some way will be best. Click on the Create button at the bottom of the modal.
- After creating the integration, you'll see a new tile show up with the name you just created. Click on that tile and a modal will appear with your API keys. Copy both to use in Step 3
Now you've created your API keys, go back to the page from Step 1 and proceed onto Step 3.
Step 3 - Input Addigy API Keys
You'll now need to fill in the appropriate information.
- Name - name the datasource. This can be Addigy or anything you want
- Addigy Client ID - This is the first part of the key you created in step 2
- Addigy Client Secret - This is the second part of the key you created in step 2
Step 4 - Test Connection
Make sure to test the connection. If successful, save the connection.
Once you’ve saved the connection then the datasets and gauges will be added to your account. You are now set!
Client Mapping Notes
One last note is that unlike other datasources, Addigy lacks a client name, so for the client mapping feature of BrightGauge, Addigy uses the Policy name. This means that for clients with multiple policies, you'll need to map each one of them for the client mapping.
