Changes to Sprout Social data source connector — June 2023

What's happening

We've simplified the authentication flow in our Sprout Social data source connector, as well as updated several field names. We have also added new fields for both of the query types. 

These changes may have an impact on your queries.

You'll see these changes in Supermetrics starting on June 21, 2023.

Authentication changes

When authenticating with Sprout Social, you no longer need to fill in the Customer ID, as we're now fetching the ID automatically. Take a look at our Sprout Social connection guide to learn more about authentication.

Query type changes

We've changed the names of the query types to better describe their purpose:

  • Posts query type has been renamed Post performance
  • Tags query type has been renamed Tag performance

We've also added time zone selection for the Post performance query type. You can use the time zone selection to return posts for the chosen date range using your preferred time zone.
