Learn how to configure Vitally to send data back to Segment for distribution to your other destinations.
Vitally pushes data to Segment via the
groupAPI. Each time we detect that an account should be pushed to Segment (using the logic detailed here), we'll send a
groupcall for every user in the account. We will not send
identifycalls for those Users, just groups associating their
idwith the Customer's
So that you can isolate the data sent from Vitally from your other sources, we recommend creating a new source for Vitally in Segment using the HTTP API template. That way, you can decide which destinations you want to receive data from Vitally.
After creating the new source in Segment, enable sending group calls in your Segment integration settings and add the write key for the Vitally source.
Once you've added your API write key, then back in Segment, just connect the Vitally source to a new destination to get your data flowing!
Once you've setup Vitally as a Segment source, you then just need to define which Vitally account fields you want to send back to Segment as
grouptraits. Back in the Segment integration configuration page in Vitally, define a mapping of Vitally account fields to named
grouptraits. For each mapping defined, we'll add a new trait to the data we push back to Segment.
Q: Does Vitally's Segment integration work in "device" or "cloud" mode?
A: We are a Segment destination, there should be no impact to your app if you already have Segment integrated to your app. To clarify further, we’re a “cloud” destination, so Segment does not load any of our code.
