Rate Limiting & Performance Considerations

Instagram, like all Facebook services, has a limit on the number of requests, but Instagram connector gracefully handles rate limiting.

See Facebook's documentation on rate limiting for more information.

Setup guide

Facebook App

If you don't have a Facebook App

Visit the Facebook Developers App hub and create an App and choose "Manage Business Integrations" as the purpose of the app. Fill out the remaining fields to create your app.

Facebook Page

See the Facebook support for information about how to add an Instagram Account to your Facebook Page.

Instagram Business Account

Follow the Instagram documentation for setting up an Instagram business account. We'll need this ID to configure Instagram as a source in Airbyte.

To work with the Instagram connector, you need to generate an Access Token with the following permissions:

More details how to get a User's Access Token you can find in the following docs: Access Tokens and User and Page Access Tokens

With the Instagram Account ID and API access token, you should be ready to start pulling data from the Facebook Instagram API. Head to the Airbyte UI to setup your source connector!
