How to Get Started with Pusher on Zapier

To get started with Pusher on Zapier, first you will need to click to connect your Pusher account to use with your Zap.

Next, you'll be asked to name your Pusher connection and enter some connection details.

The following has more information on the connection details you need to fill in:

  • Name this connected Pusher account on Zapier

This can be any name for your Pusher connection. Hint: it can be useful to put the Application ID in the “Name this connected Pusher account on Zapier” field for quick reference

  • Application ID

You can find this by going to the "API Keys" setting of the App you are connecting to from your dashboard. Then look for the "app id" on the right-hand side under "App Credentials".

  • Application Key

This is also on the API Keys page under "Access Tokens".

  • Application Secret

This is also on the API Keys page under "Access Tokens".

  • Application Cluster

This is an optional field. If you have created your Pusher application on a specific cluster you will need to enter the cluster name. Please leave blank if unsure or if you haven't selected a cluster when you created your Pusher application.

Once you have pasted your details in, then click “Continue”. If your data was entered correctly your Pusher account will now be successfully connected.

A Note on Security#

We’re a fun yet pragmatic bunch at Pusher. So we understand that the data you’re sending through Zapier and Pusher may be private. All you need to do to add a layer of authentication to the above process is to give the channel name a private- prefix and expose an authentication endpoint so you can make sure the user that is subscribing to your data has the right to do so.
