Hootsuite API Provider Setup

API Provider Setup

To authenticate a Hootsuite connector instance you must register an app with Hootsuite and request credentials. When you authenticate, use the REST API Client ID, REST API Client Secret, and API Callback URL as the API Key, API Secret, and Callback URL. If you plan to monitor events, also configure the Webhook URL.

Note: To activate API access for your Hootsuite application, contact Hootsuite support.

See the latest setup instructions in the Hootsuite documentation.

Set Up Events

Hootsuite supports webhooks. If you want to enable events when you authenticate a connector instance configure the Webhook URL at Hootsuite.You must append the connector instance ID encoded with Base 64 to the end of the webhook URL. Because of this, you must authenticate a connector instance first with a placeholder Event Notification Callback URL. After you have the connector ID, set up the Webhook URL as described below, and then update the connector instance.2asdf asefasefasefaseasefasfewew
