How to set up

    • Subdomain is the first element of your Zendesk URL, usually your company name
    • Username is the email address you are using to connect to your Zendesk account
    • The API token is the code copied from step 3

  2. Select Zendesk in the plugin section of the dataset menu
  3. Click on Zendesk search
  4. Pick the access type and the preset you previously configured

Three types of imports are possible:

  • Search allows fine grained searches, but will only retrieve 1,000 items
  • Users, Organizations, Groups, Tickets and Satisfaction ratings retrieve bulk information for these items for all non archived items.
  • The Incremental API let you retrieve all items (including archived ones) between two epoch timestamps. This API is available for Users, Organizations, Groups, Tickets, Satisfaction ratings and Ticket events.
