๐Ÿ’ก Things to know about the connector

There are a few unique features available when syncing to a instance.
  • People are very standard Census syncs. only allows the ID field to be used as the identifier for a Person record and recommends using your internal ID when possible, though email may be used to refer to prospective users if needed. โš ๏ธ This is a configuration done at the Project level of your instance. You can read more about's identifier guidelines here.
  • Events are unique (literally!). Census will only send new database rows to and so Events only support the Append Only behavior for syncs. In order to make sure an event is only ever published once, each row in your events source needs a globally unique ID.
Both objects support arbitrary custom fields. You can directly map to a new custom field by clicking the + Add Custom Field button when creating or editing a mapping.
