Introduction

The Stitch Connect JavaScript Client is a library for integrating Stitch’s data source creation and configuration workflows seamlessly into your web application. Using a pop-up window, end-users can:

  • Create a source of a particular type, such as Marketo or Salesforce
  • Authorize an existing source
  • Run a connection check for an existing source and discover its schema
  • Select streams (tables) to replicate for an existing source
  • Edit an existing source

Data Sources and Connection Steps

Stitch data sources require a unique sequence of connection steps specific to the source type to be fully configured.

When a user is sent to a particular step using the JavaScript client, the user will also be prompted to complete any successive steps to complete configuration of the source.

For example: When the addSource function is used, the user will be prompted to first add the data source. The user will next be directed to authorize the source and select the streams they want to replicate.


Versioning

As of November 13, 2018, the current version of the JavaScript client is version 1.x.x.

Refer to the Releases page in the Stitch JS GitHub repo to for updated release packages.


Installation

  1. Visit the Stitch JS GitHub repo and download the latest release.

  2. In your application, add this <script> tag just before the closing <body> tag of the page(s) you want it to run on:

    <!-- local file -->
    
    <script type="text/javascript" src="your-application.com/stitch-client.umd.min.js"></script>
    
  3. Enjoy embedded Stitch workflows.

Functions

The JavaScript client supports the functions listed below. All of the functions expect an options object as the only argument and return a Promise.

FUNCTION

addSource(options)

Initiates the creation of a source in the user’s Stitch client account.

Arguments

The addSource function expects an options object as the only argument. This object must contain all parameters marked as REQUIRED:

type
STRING
REQUIRED

The source type. For example: platform.hubspot or platform.marketo.

ephemeral_token
STRING
OPTIONAL

The token used to automatically log the user into the Stitch client account. Retrieved by creating a session using the Connect API’s Create a Session endpoint.

If the token is not provided, the user may be prompted to sign into their Stitch account.

The ephemeral token expires one hour after generation. When specified as an argument in a Connect JavaScript function, the ephemeral token is exchanged for a session token, creating a temporary Stitch session for the user. The session expires once terminated or 12 hours after its creation.

default_streams
OBJECT
OPTIONAL

Sets the default selections for the data structures (tables) to be replicated during the source integration setup. Should be an object of the form {"table_name": true}. For example:

"default_streams":{
   "campaigns":true,
   "companies":true
}

Additionally, note that:

  • Only top-levels may be provided
  • If a table name is provided that the integration doesn’t support, it will be ignored
  • Values other than true will be ignored

Example Usage

The code below will create a HubSpot integration (type: platform.hubspot) in the user’s Stitch account, with the campaigns and companies tables pre-selected for replication.

Stitch.addSource({
    "type": "platform.hubspot",
    "ephemeral_token": "<EPHEMERAL_TOKEN>",
    "default_streams":{
       "campaigns": true,
       "companies": true
    }
}).then((result) => {
    console.log(`Integration created, type=${result.type}, id=${result.id}`);
}).catch((error) => {
    console.log("Integration not created.", error);
});

Stitch.js will send the user to Stitch and open the Integration Settings page, where the user can configure the integration.

FUNCTION

authorizeSource(options)

Sends the user to Stitch, which will redirect to the third-party to complete an OAuth handshake.

Arguments

The authorizeSource function expects an options object as the only argument. This object must contain all parameters marked as REQUIRED:

id
INTEGER
REQUIRED

The unique identifier for the source. For example: 12345

ephemeral_token
STRING
OPTIONAL

The token used to automatically log the user into the Stitch client account. Retrieved by creating a session using the Connect API’s Create a Session endpoint.

If the token is not provided, the user may be prompted to sign into their Stitch account.

The ephemeral token expires one hour after generation. When specified as an argument in a Connect JavaScript function, the ephemeral token is exchanged for a session token, creating a temporary Stitch session for the user. The session expires once terminated or 12 hours after its creation.

default_streams
OBJECT
OPTIONAL

Sets the default selections for the data structures (tables) to be replicated during the source integration setup. Should be an object of the form {"table_name": true}. For example:

"default_streams":{
   "campaigns":true,
   "companies":true
}

Additionally, note that:

  • Only top-levels may be provided
  • If a table name is provided that the integration doesn’t support, it will be ignored
  • Values other than true will be ignored

Example Usage

The code below will first send the user to Stitch and then re-direct to the appropriate third-party to complete an OAuth handshake.

Stitch.authorizeSource({
    "id": 45612,
    "ephemeral_token": "<EPHEMERAL_TOKEN>"
}).then((result) => {
    console.log(`Integration created, type=${result.type}, id=${result.id}`);
}).catch((error) => {
    console.log("Integration not created.", error);
});

Stitch.js will send the user to Stitch and then re-direct to the appropriate third-party to complete an OAuth handshake.

In this example, the source being authorized is HubSpot (type: platform.hubspot).

FUNCTION

displayDiscoveryOutputForSource(options)

Checks the source’s connection and discovers its schema.

Arguments

The displayDiscoveryOutputForSource function expects an options object as the only argument. This object must contain all parameters marked as REQUIRED:

id
INTEGER
REQUIRED

The unique identifier for the source. For example: 12345

discovery_job_name
STRING
REQUIRED

When a source is updated, Stitch will run a connection check to test the source’s connection parameters and discover its schema. This value is the name of the job that should be displayed.

To initiate a connection check, use the Update a Source endpoint. The check_job_name attribute in the response will contain a discovery job name.

ephemeral_token
STRING
OPTIONAL

The token used to automatically log the user into the Stitch client account. Retrieved by creating a session using the Connect API’s Create a Session endpoint.

If the token is not provided, the user may be prompted to sign into their Stitch account.

The ephemeral token expires one hour after generation. When specified as an argument in a Connect JavaScript function, the ephemeral token is exchanged for a session token, creating a temporary Stitch session for the user. The session expires once terminated or 12 hours after its creation.

Additionally, note that:

  • Only top-levels may be provided
  • If a table name is provided that the integration doesn’t support, it will be ignored
  • Values other than true will be ignored

Example Usage

The code below will run a connection check, discover the schema for source 45612, and output the results.
