Domo Basic Writeback Connector
The Ambition Basic Connector allows mutual customers of Domo and Ambition to schedule and push updates from Domo datasets to Ambition.
An API integration within Ambition must be enabled. You will need the route and token from the API integration in Ambition before being able to complete the Connector form in Domo.
The API integration must be set to JSON File Format and use the Daily Totals Data Format.
The DataSet must be owned by or shared with the respective user in Domo.
There is a limit of 10 columns in a DataSet per Basic Writeback Connector. The limit of 10 column includes the entire DataSet rather than the 10 being inclusive of just the columns mapped within the API's Data Format.

2. Access the Appstore.
3. Search for Ambition and select the "Ambition Basic Writeback Connector".
