The first stage of getting your dotmailer Zap set up is connecting and authenticating your dotmailer account with your Zapier account.

Steps to connect and authenticate

This is the connection screen you're presented with.


1. API username

The first field you need to fill in when authenticating your dotmailer account is your API username. This username is generated for you within dotmailer when you create your API user.

2. API password

The second field you need to fill in is your API password. Enter the password you decided upon when creating your API user within dotmailer.

3. Activate connection

After correctly entering the above details, click on Yes, Continue. You'll then be given confirmation that you're account has been connected.


If you need to remind yourself of any of your API user details, they can be found by clicking on the person-and-cog icon in the bottom left corner of dotmailer to access the settings menu and then selecting Access > API users.
