This guide shows you how to use Census to connect your Criteo account to your data warehouse and create your first sync.

Criteo can only be authorized once to any Census instance. In order to create a second connection, you'll need to deauthorize Census first inside the Criteo UI.
  1. 1.
    Log into Census and navigate to Connections.
  2. 2.
    Click Add Service.
  3. 3.
    Select Criteo from the menu
  4. 4.
    Follow the Criteo OAuth authentication flow, which will ask you to log in with your Criteo username and password.
  5. 5.
    Once logged in, select the Portfolio's you want Census to have access to and Approve
  6. 6.
    Finally once back in Census you'll select the Audience
Once complete, you'll see your new connection in the Service Connections list. ๐Ÿ‘‡

When defining models, you'll write SQL queries to select the data you want to see in Criteo. This can be as simple as selecting everything in a specific database table or as complex as creating new calculated values.
  1. 1.
    From inside your Census account, navigate to the Models page.
  2. 2.
    Click Add Model.
  3. 3.
    Enter a name for your model. You'll use this to select the model later.
  4. 4.
    Enter your SQL query. If you want to test the query, use the Preview button.
  5. 5.
    Click Save Model.

The sync will move data from your warehouse to Criteo. In this step, you'll define how that will work.
  1. 1.
    From inside your Census account, navigate to the Syncs page and click Add Sync.
  2. 2.
    Under What data do you want to sync?, choose your data warehouse as the Connection and your model as the Source.
  3. 3.
    Under Where do you want to sync data to?, choose Criteo as the Connection and "Static List Membership" as the Object. (See Supported objects for options.)
  4. 4.
    Under How should changes to the source be synced?, choose Update or Create. (See Supported sync behaviors for options.)
  5. 5.
    Under How are source and destination records matched?, select an Identifier for the model and for Criteo. We recommend using an internal ID when possible. (See Supported objects.)
  6. 6.
    Under Which properties should be updated?, choose to update Specific Properties or Sync All Properties.
  7. 7.
    Set up the lookup mapping for the Static List and any other properties you want to update by mapping a column in your model to a property in Criteo.
  8. 8.
    Click Next. This will open the Confirm Details page where you can see a recap of your setup.
  9. 9.
    If you want to start a sync immediately, set the Run a sync now? checkbox.
  10. 10.
    Click Create Sync.
When configuring your sync, the page should look something like this: ๐Ÿ‘‡

Once your sync is complete, it's time to check your data. Open Criteo and check that the Static List Memberships updated correctly.
