How to use the query builder

Once you get to the query builder, you will see two main sections: the query tab on the left and the table to the right.

The query tab is where you customize your request. It contains information on authorization and lets you enter both required and optional parameters to submit to the API. To the right is the data table where you can get a preview of the dataset.


Many APIs require authorization before you can make requests. Broadly speaking, there are four types of authorization:

  • OAuth: For connectors like Facebook and Twitter

  • No Auth: No authorization is required

  • API key: Requires you to have an API key

  • Auth via Databar.ai: The API requires authorization, but we're providing you with the Databar.ai API key so you don't have to get one
