Copy your Analytics API Key from Vitally.

REST API

  • Required for Update Only syncs
  • Navigate to https://[your-domain].vitally.io/integrations/public-api
  • Copy the part of Basic Auth Header after the word Basic (e.g. if it reads Basic 1234, then only copy 1234)
Copy your REST API Key from Vitally.

2. Connect Vitally

  • Return to Census and navigate to the Destinations page
  • Click the New Destination button
  • Select Vitally from the list
  • Paste your API Key(s) into the relevant fields

Vitally defines User ID and Account ID as the unique identifier for these objects in your system. You are free to use whatever ID you like, but it needs to be unique.

User Behavior Notes

  • Users must have at least one Account in Vitally so Accounts is a required field when syncing to users. It's also an Array field so you'll need to provide it an array value or JSON formatted Array.
  • Any Account ID values that don't already exist in Vitally will be automatically created.

🔍 Additional Service Quirks

  • Vitally's internal database has a delay between Census completing its upload and having those results reflected in the UI. This delay can be several seconds to several minutes in extreme cases.
  • As with all Census syncs, when you unmap a field in Census, we will stop updating those fields. We do not delete them.
