Creating a Facebook Ads data source
- In the Navigation Panel, go to Integrations > Catalog.
- Use the Search box OR click the Business Packages filter to locate the data source.

Note: If the data source has already been used, a dialog is displayed in which you can select from one of the listed sources. Alternatively, create a new source by clicking Add a new source.
- In the displayed dialog, follow the onscreen instructions (for example, you will be prompted to login to the relevant Facebook account).
Creating a Facebook Ads stream query
If you have just created a Facebook Ads data source, skip to step 3.
- In the Sources page (accessed by clicking Integrations > Sources in the Navigation Panel), filter the list of streams to find the Facebook Ads source for which you want to create a stream query.

- Select Template: Select from the available templates.
- Stream Properties: Define a name and owner for the stream.
- Schedule: Click the pencil icon to define the Collect Since value (the time span of data to query while initializing a stream).
- Review the Stream Query page to confirm your chosen stream data.
- Click NEXT. The Stream Table is displayed; see Stream Tables for more information.
