How to Get Started with Pinboard

The first thing you'll need to do to get started with hooking up Pinbaord with Zapier and the hundreds of services we work with is adding your Pinboard Account to Zapier. When the time is right, we'll ask you to add your Account:

Next we will ask you to give your new Account a name or label, which is just a handy name for you to recognize within Zapier. It doesn't matter what you name it, but it does matter what you paste into the API Token field!

The locate your Pinboard API Token, log into Pinboard and navigate to the settings page. Then, click on the password tab to see your API Token. Your API Token consists of your username, followed by a colon and a unique token, as shown below.

Just copy the API Token into the popup back at Zapier and click the continue button:

As the final step, Zapier will automatically test that your API Token is good and you'll be allowed to continue setting up your Zap.

If you typed in your API Token incorrectly, you'll see an error like authorization failed: Not Authorized and we'll show you the error itself:
