How to set up Sigma

🤓 Who can do this? You will probably need your Sigma administrator to complete these steps — you may not have access yourself.

Identify your organization's cloud

You will need your organization's cloud information to determine the endpoint while authenticating in Atlan.

To identify your organization's cloud:

  1. Open your Sigma account.
  2. In the top right of the screen, click your profile avatar and then click Administration to open your Account page.
  3. On the Account page, under Site in General Settings, view the cloud information.

Create an API token and client ID

To create an API token and client ID:

  1. Open your Sigma account.
  2. In the top right of the screen, click your profile avatar and then click Administration.
  3. In the left menu on the Administration page, click APIs & Embed Secrets.
  4. On the APIs & Embed Secrets page, click Create New.
  5. From the Create New API Token or Embed Secret popover, click API Token and enter the following details:
    • For Name, type a name.
    • For Owner, select the user you would like to associate with the token.
  6. Click Create to finish creating the API token.
  7. Once prompted, click Copy to paste your API key secret in a secure location.
    🚨 Careful! The secret cannot be retrieved once this popover is closed.
  8. Your newly created API token will be listed in the APIs & Embed Secrets page. Hover over the token’s Client ID and click Copy.

Both the API token and the client ID are required for authentication in Atlan.

Verify necessary permissions

Ensure that the owner associated with the API token has the following permissions:

  • Can View permission for all the Sigma workbooks and datasets you want to crawl.
  • Can Use permission for all the Sigma connections used in the workbooks and datasets.
