Pardot connection guide

Use this guide to connect your Pardot — sometimes called Salesforce Pardot — data to your Supermetrics reports.


If you need to connect this data source to one of our data warehouse or cloud storage destinations, explore our prerequisite and filling guides.


Before you begin

To connect Pardot to Supermetrics, you need:

  • A user account in a Salesforce instance that's connected to Pardot
  • A Pardot business unit ID
  • A Pardot instance that is capable of using V4 and V5 of Pardot API.

AMPSEA is required for using V4 and V5 of the Pardot API. If you see the following error message, it's likely you don't have AMPSEA enabled for your Pardot instance. Learn more about AMPSEA in Salesforce documentation.

  • Pardot error: 89 Your account is unable to use version 4 of the API.


How to find a business unit ID

  1. Log in to Salesforce
  2. On the top right-hand side, click Setup.
  3. In the left-hand menu, navigate down to Platform Tools → Pardot → Pardot Account Setup.
  4. Copy the Business unit ID and Business unit name to your notepad. Keep them safe — you'll need them when you authenticate Pardot in Supermetrics for the first time.
