This component will authenticate and generate the necessary access token needed to request data from Instagram. From there, simple calls to the Instagram API endpoints will generate the requested data. The external ‘requests’ library is included in the project folder so you don’t need to install it manually. However, if you have it installed you can remove it from the project folder.
Simply register an app with Instagram and fill out the required Client Info fields in the component. Once filled in simply pulse the Authenticate button to create the access token.
Once authenticated, update the ‘endpointURL’ DAT to your choosing and the ‘requestsEndpoints’ DAT Execute will print the data to the text port. From there you can choose how you would like to use the data.
Lastly, this will run in Sandbox Mode unless approved by Instagram. I recommend reading up on the restrictions while in Sandbox Mode - instagram.com/developer/sandbox/
