Which permissions are needed to connect Facebook in DashThis?

Depending on each API, you need a certain level of permissions in order to connect an integration in your DashThis account and create your reports.

Facebook Insights

 

There are two places where you need to verify your accesses in Facebook Insights: the settings of your Page Roles, and the roles in your Facebook Business Manager.

 

1. Verify that you are an actual user of your Facebook Page by going in the settings of this page. An Analyst Role is sufficient to access the insights of your page and connect it into DashThis.

 

2. Verify also that you have the right permissions for the same page in your Facebook Business Manager. The View Page Performance permission is the only one needed to access Facebook Insights’ data in DashThis.

 

3. If one of these roles is missing, ask an administrator to give you the right permissions.

Facebook Ads

 

For Facebook Ads, you need to check your accesses in your Facebook Business Manager, inside the "Ad Accounts" roles.

 

1. Verify that you are an actual user of your Facebook Ads account by going in the settings of the ad account.

2. Verify that you have the right permissions for this ad account. The View Performance permission is the only one needed to access Facebook Ads data in DashThis.

 

3. If one of those roles is missing, ask an administrator to give you the right permissions.
