Mixpanel Source Plugin

Latest: v2.0.0

The CloudQuery Mixpanel plugin pulls data from Mixpanel and loads it into any supported CloudQuery destination (e.g. PostgreSQL, BigQuery, Snowflake, and more).


In order to fetch information from Mixpanel, cloudquery needs to be authenticated using a Service Account (opens in a new tab) from your Mixpanel account. You can view and manage your Service Accounts in Mixpanel Organization Settings > Service Accounts.


This example syncs from Mixpanel to a Postgres destination. The (top level) source spec section is described in the Source Spec Reference.

kind: source
# Common source-plugin configuration
  name: mixpanel
  path: cloudquery/mixpanel
  version: "v2.0.0"
  tables: ["*"]
  destinations: ["postgresql"]
  backend: local
  # Mixpanel specific configuration
    project_id: 12345 # Your project ID

The Mixpanel plugin supports incremental syncing for event data. This means that only new events will be fetched from Mixpanel and loaded into your destination. This is done by keeping track of the last event fetched and only fetching events that has been created since then. To enable this, backend option must be set in the spec (as shown in the example). This is documented in the Managing Incremental Tables section.
