Connect Facebook with MESA
When you're setting up your first workflow with Facebook, you'll need to connect Facebook with MESA. Click on the Connect with Facebook button.
You will be asked to login into your Facebook Business account if not already logged in.
Afterwards, you will be brought back to your current workflow and you are all set! MESA is now connected with your Facebook account.
❗️Important Note: A Facebook credential will expire after 60 days if not used in an enabled Facebook workflow. If you have an enabled Facebook workflow, your Facebook credential will remain active. If your credential has expired, please connect Facebook with MESA again by re-creating a new credential.
Most Facebook actions will require you to select an Ad Account or Business Account. These fields are type-ahead selects that will automatically select from the Facebook accounts tied to your credential.
Simply click into these fields and an account should appear. If no accounts appear, ensure that you have created an Ad Account in your Facebook Business Portal and that you have followed all of the steps outlined above to properly set up a credential.
The Facebook Insights API is a powerful way to build custom reports on Facebook. You can specify fields to return, group by (the Level configuration option), sort by, and custom date ranges to query over.
You can even apply a customized filter to limit the data that is returned. Use the helpful tooltips next to fields for more details about each option and consult the Facebook documentation for a full list of available fields, or example queries that can be run.
Many Facebook actions require specific combinations of parameters to be successfully created and updated. Consult the Facebook Marketing API documentation for full details.
