Where can I get the Piwik URL and the auth token?

Along with WordPress and WP-Piwik you need a running Piwik installation:


The Piwik URL is the same URL you use to access your Piwik, e.g. for the demo site: http://demo.piwik.org.

Now you need the auth token. This is some kind of secret password, which allows WP-Piwik to get the necessary data from Piwik.

The super user's auth token, i.e. a full access password for your Piwik, can be found by clicking the API link:

It is stated in the box behind &token_auth=:

The demo's (http://demo.piwik.org/index.php?module= ... =yesterday) auth token would be anonymous, but your auth token should consist of plenty of letters and numbers.

Alternativly, each Piwik user gets his own auth token. So you can choose a user's token, which comes with just the necessary user rights, instead of using the super user's full access token. You can get the users tokens at Settings → Users:

You authenticate using the auth token (the super user token or a user token which grants at least the necessary view access). The auth token is some kind of a "password key".
