Open Exchange Rates Query Authentication Guide


Overview

This is a step-by-step guide to acquiring credentials and authorising the Open Exchange Rates Query connector for use in Matillion ETL.

Important Information

  4. If the App ID is generated successfully, the window will refresh. There will now be a yellow block at the top of the window stating, "New App ID successfully created" and the newly created App ID will appear in the App IDs section. Copy the code in field below App ID as it will be required in Authorising for Use in Matillion ETL.

    Please Note

    Standard subscriptions are limited to just 1 active App ID at a time. If Generate New App ID is greyed out, the current active App ID my need to be deactivated. Alternatively, upgrade to a higher subscription level.
