LabelPropTypeDescription

A unique identifier for the group in your database.

Integrationsintegrationsobject

Dictionary of destinations to either enable or disable

Traitstraitsobject

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.
