PayPal 3rd Party OAuth Setup

PayPal 3rd Party OAuth Setup

Setting Up Your PayPal Account (REST)

Log into your PayPal developer account and access the dashboard. From there, click 'My Apps & Credentials' from the Dashboard menu on the left-hand side.


Setting Up Your Matillion ETL Instance (REST)

Log into your Matillion ETL instance and open the Manage OAuth window through the Project Menu. Once in Manage OAuth, a new entry can be made by clicking the + button in the lower-left corner. Enter any name you like and ensure to select PayPal from the 'Service' dropdown menu. Press OK.

Now select your new OAuth entry from the Manage OAuth list. Click the cogwheel icon beside its name to bring up a configuration menu containing 2 fields.


Finding Your API Details (SOAP)

SOAP API requires 3 details from your PayPal developer account: a username, password and signature. It is important to note that these are not necessarily the details you are using to log into your developer account.

Begin by logging into your PayPal developer dashboard. At the left-side, click on 'Accounts' and a list of associated accounts should be listed. Click an email address to expand the option and click the revealed 'Profile' button.

The rest of the component can be set up as usual. See the PayPal Query documentation for more details.
