The Disqus Connector provides automated access to the Disqus API.


Access to Single Sign-On (SSO) is available with a Business tier subscription to make API requests as required.

The Disqus connector requires you to create a Key in the Key Editor.

In order to fill in its required values out properly, you will need to follow the Disqus auth instructions and follow the instructions under “Creating a new Application” in order to obtain the following properties:

  • api key
  • access token


The Disqus connector can be scheduled to ingest data once per day at a user-defined hour and timezone.

By default, the connector will run once at 6am PT.

See Daily Scheduling for more information.
