You’ll need two accounts in order for the Data Export to work:
- An Akamai Identity Cloud account - securely stores access information for the Identity Cloud application from which to export user data.
- An SFTP or S3 account - securely stores access information for the SFTP server or S3 bucket where you’d like to receive the exported user data.
Let’s set these up.
Create Akamai Identity Cloud account
For this step, you’ll need your dedicated
direct_read_access Client Id and Secret from Console. See Prerequisites.
In the SnapLogic Manager tab:
- In the left navigation under Identity Cloud Data Export, click on your project folder to open it
- In the main panel, click on the Accounts tab
- In the upper right corner, click the Create icon ()
- Select Akamai > Akamai Account
- In the modal, provide a Label you’ll use to identify this account later (e.g. “CompanyName Prod Identity Cloud”)
- Add your Registration Domain from Console, making sure to include the
You can find your Registration Domain in the Identity Cloud Console:
- Click your application in the left column to expand menu
- Click MANAGE APPLICATION
- Find the
Registration Domain in the top section of the page
- Add the Client ID and Client Secret for your dedicated
direct_read_access client in Console
- Click Apply
Create receiver account
For this step, you’ll need the access credentials for your sFTP server or Amazon S3 bucket. See Prerequisites.
In your project folder under Identity Cloud Data Export, still on the Accounts tab:
- In the upper-right corner, click the Create icon ()
For an sFTP server, for example:
Select Binary > Basic Auth
In the modal, provide a Label you’ll use to identify this account later (e.g. “CompanyName Data Export sFTP”)
Add the Username and Password you use to access your sFTP server. Note that the password will be encrypted when you save it to SnapLogic.
This is just one example of how to set up an sFTP account. If you access your sFTP account with a private key instead of a password, you may need to select a different kind of account to add, such as Binary > SSH Auth or Binary > Private Key Account.
For an Amazon S3 bucket, for example:
- Select Binary > AWS S3
- In the modal, provide a Label you’ll use to identify this account later (e.g. “CompanyName Data Export S3 bucket”)
- Add the Access-key ID and Secret key you can use to access your S3 bucket. Note that both these values will be encrypted when you save them to SnapLogic.
- Unless the other fields in this modal pertain to you, you can skip them
- Click Apply
Your project folder should now contain:
- Three (3) pipelines
- Two (2) accounts
