This guide assumes that you have access to two Yext accounts: a source account (where you will pull entities from) and a target account (where you will pull entities into). Missing one or both accounts? You can sign up for a no-obligations Free Trial here or you can create a Playground Account from your Hitchhikers Control Center.


This guide will walk you through how to build a data connector between two Yext accounts. If you power your Answers experience or Yext pages with entities from multiple source accounts, you no longer have to manually transfer and update the data. Connectors can pull entity information on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

In this guide, we’ll go walk through how to seamlessly and automatically transfer data from one account to another in just a few steps! In this guide, you will:

  • Prepare Your Source Account
  • Prepare Your Target Account
  • Build Your Data Connector!

You will only be able to pull entities of one entity type for every data connector you create. If you need to pull multiple entity types, simply repeat step 3 with the new entity ID.
