Zendesk Connector for Data Prep

User Persona: Data Prep User, Data Prep Admin, Data Source Admin, or IT/DevOps


This document covers all configuration fields available during connector setup. Some fields may have already been filled out by your Administrator at an earlier step of configuration and may not be visible to you. For more information on Data Prep's connector framework, see Data Prep Connector setup. Also, your Admin may have named this connector something else in the list of Data Sources.

Configuring Data Prep

This connector allows you to connect to Zendesk for browsing and importing available data. The following fields are used to define the connection parameters.


  • Name: Name of the data source as it will appear to users in the UI.
  • Description: Description of the data source as it will appear to users in the UI.


You can connect Data Prep to multiple Zendesk accounts. Using a descriptive name can be a big help to users in identifying the appropriate data source. If you are a Data Prep SaaS customer, inform Data Prep DevOps how you would like this set.
