Bitly

The Bitly modules enable you to shorten links, expand links and list links in your Bitly account.

Getting Started with Bitly

Prerequisites

  • A Bitly account

In order to use Bitly with Make, it is necessary to have a Bitly account. If you do not have one, you can create a Bitly account at bitly.com.

Caution

The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Make scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

Connecting Bitly to Make

To connect your Bitly account to Make follow the general instructions for Connecting to services.

After you click the Continue button, Make will redirect you to the Bitly website where you will be prompted to grant Make access to your account.
