Setup Guide

Follow these steps to connect BigCommerce to your CData Connect account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the CData Connect dashboard.

  2. Click + Add Connection in the upper-right corner.

  3. Type BigCommerce into the search field, then click the data source name.

  4. On the Basic Settings tab of the new connection, enter a connection name or keep the default name.

  5. Enter your store Id, which is located in the BigCommerce URL when you are logged in to your account. It is formatted as https://store-[StoreId]

  6. If you do not have a BigCommerce access token, see Create API Account for instructions about how to generate one.

  7. On the Basic Settings tab, enter your BigCommerce access token in the OAuth Access Token field.

In most situations, you can now click Save & Test to create your connection. Certain configurations might need to use the steps under Custom OAuth Apps instead, but this is rare.

Custom OAuth Apps

  1. Open the Advanced Settings tab and enter your OAuth client Id and OAuth client secret.

  2. Click Sign in to connect securely through OAuth. This action opens the BigCommerce sign-in page in a new tab.

  3. Log into your BigCommerce account and provide the requested permissions (if applicable).

  4. At the top of the CData Connect Add BigCommerce Connection page, click Save & Test.

    • If the connection test succeeds, a message indicates that your connection has been created.

    • If the connection test fails, ensure that you entered your login information correctly with no stray spaces or other characters. Then, try again.

Create API Account

Follow these steps to create an API account and generate login credentials:

  1. In the BigCommerce navigation pane, click Advanced Settings.

  2. Select API Accounts.

  3. On the API Accounts page, select Create API Account > Create V2/V3 API Token.

  4. Enter a name for the API Account.

  5. In the OAuth Scopes section, grant access to each data category that you want to access through CData Connect, then click Save.

  6. Copy the values from the Client ID and Client Secret fields.
