CKAN Sync for Screendoor
by The Department of Better Technology

Screendoor <> CKAN Integration

Note: This integration is only available on Screendoor’s enterprise plans.

Instead of manually releasing open data to your CKAN portal, Screendoor can sync your responses with a CKAN dataset automatically. Revisions to responses can even be reflected in your portal in real time.

Connecting to CKAN

If you have a CKAN account, visit your project’s Settings page, and select “Integrations” from the sidebar. Click “Enable” next to CKAN.

On the Connect to CKAN page, fill in the URL and API key of your CKAN data portal.
