Set up Mailgun Integration

Before you begin, you will need the following:‌

  • Mailgun Account

  • CrossEngage Account

  • User data (including an email address)

Fetching Your Mailgun API Key

A Mailgun API key allows CrossEngage to connect to your Mailgun account. There are two simple ways to fetch your Mailgun API keys. You can either locate the keys in Account Settings > Security or by following the consecutive steps:‌

  • Log in to your Mailgun account.

  • Scroll down on the dashboard.

  • On the right side of the page you will find a box labelled API keys where your Public and Private API keys are located.

Public Validation Key - Suitable for use in client-side web applications, such as through the jQuery plugin.

Private API Key - Suitable for use in backend applications where there is not a risk of key exposure.‌

  • Click on the eye icon to make the full API key of your choice visible. We encourage you to use the Private API Key.

  • Copy the Private API key - it will be used later for the integration.

Configuring a Mailgun Integration in CrossEngage

  • In the CrossEngage app, navigate to Settings > Integrations.

  • Click the Add new integration button in the top right corner of the page.

  • Search for Mailgun, then click Set up. An integration set-up form will open.

  • Enter a clear, descriptive name for your integration in the "Account name" field.

  • Paste the Private API key that you copied from your Mailgun account during the previous steps into the "Connection" field.

  • Click Connect.

  • Choose your Mailgun domain and click Apply to save your integration.
