Setting permissions in your folder for ThruTalk

The second step to completing your VAN API Key integration in ThruTalk is configuring your VAN folder. Click here for information on how to get a VAN API Key for your committee .

Step 1: Set VAN permissions in your VAN folder

Before you can "pull" lists from VAN to ThruTalk, you must grant the ThruTalk API permission to access your lists in your VAN folder.

Step 2: VAN folder creation

You will then want to create a dedicated folder of lists and provide permissions at that level by editing your folder settings. Here's what those permissions settings look like in VAN:

Step 3: Save the list to your folder 

Once you've set up your folder with the proper permissions, create lists in VAN that you want to move over to ThruTalk, and make sure they are in the appropriate folder as a saved fixed list.

NOTE - Your lists must be saved as fixed lists, NOT dynamic searches. If saved as searches, the VAN API will not populate lists in ThruTalk.
