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".

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.
