apologies, I believe I might be overlooking something fundamental here but I do not understand what exactly has to be done to authenticate within the XBRL XL template and make the query connections work. I tried to follow the steps in the “FAQ” tab but could not really progress.. would be really appreciated if someone could higlight the necessary (first) steps a bit more clearly. Thanks a bunch in advance!

Using the XBRL API with the Public Filings Database
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, any and all use of the XBRL API to authenticate and retrieve data from the XBRL US Database of Public Filings implies user consent and agreement with the XBRL US API Agreement. If you are unable to agree to these terms, do not use the XBRL API.
Ready to work with the API in Excel's Power Query, or with your own system or app?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your existing XBRL US Web account provisioned to generate client ID/Secret pairs to work with the XBRL API in a REST client or other application, including Excel's Power Query.
NOTE: You do not need to generate client ID/Secret pairs if you use the Google Add-on and Google Sheet exclusively to access data - the XBRL API Authentication Add-on handles this automatically.
Your account needs to be provisioned before you can login and generate client ID/secret pairs.
