Select existing connection or create a new one

The first time you use the Spectre importer, you must create a new connection (duh).

In that case, you get redirected to the Spectre website where you can find your bank using the auto-complete dropdown:

Start typing to find your bank

If you can only find fake banks, you must first upgrade your Spectre account. By default, the Spectre API comes with fake data only. To get access to real life data you must upgrade your account by contacting Spectre support.

Spectre will ask for consent:

You must give permission to continue

The connection will be made, after which you get sent back to the Firefly III Spectre importer:
