LabelPropTypeDescription
SegmentsegmentAppappThis component uses the Segment app.
Contextcontextobject

Dictionary of extra information that provides useful context about a message, but is not directly related to the API call like ip address or locale

Integrationsintegrationsobject

Dictionary of destinations to either enable or disable

Previous IDpreviousIdstring

Previous unique identifier for the user

Timestamptimestampstring

Timestamp when the message itself took place, defaulted to the current time by the Segment Tracking API. It is an ISO-8601 date string. For example, 2022-04-08T17:32:11.318Z

User IDuserIdstring

Unique identifier for the user in your database., A User ID or an Anonymous ID is required.

Authentication

Segment uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Segment account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Segment APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Segment's APIs are accessed programmatically using access tokens, as well as write keys.

Access Token

Create access tokens via the Access Management page in your account: https://app.segment.com/{your-workspace-name}/settings/access-management. See "Get a Token" for more details. Please note, that you must be on a Team or Business plan to create an access token.

Write Key

You will also need to find your write key, which is a unique identifier for your Source. To find a write key, you first need to create a non-Cloud Source such as a website, server, or mobile source. (Cloud-sources do not have write keys, as they use a token or key from your account with that service.) Then, in the Source, go to “Settings’, and then go to “API Keys”. See "Locating Your Write Key" for more details.
