When first using the Matomo Connector, Looker Studio will prompt you for credentials, specifically a Username and Token.

Matomo Credentials Input

For the Username, please specify the URL to your Matomo. If your Matomo is located at https://matomo.mysite.com, for example, you would enter https://matomo.mysite.com within the Username field.

For the Token, please use a Matomo Auth Token, also known as a token_auth, which are generated from within your Matomo. You can learn how to generate Matomo Auth Tokens in this FAQ.
