DataChannel

Introduction

DataChannel is an end-to-end data integration & activation platform. DataChannel integrates data from disparate sources into a single centralized repository and also supports the reverse flow of data from the repository to the selected apps/ services.

MoEngage <> DataChannel

With the integration of MoEngage and DataChannel, you can forward users directly stored in your data warehouse to MoEngage. This enables you to effectively analyze and segment your users, and target them using campaigns across various channels on MoEngage.

Integration Prerequisites

  • Ensure you have access to your DataChannel account. 
  • Ensure you have at least one Data source/Data warehouse set up.
  • We have revamped our dashboard settings UI. The Data API ID and Data API Key are available in the following navigations in the new and old UIs.
    • Revamped UI - You can access the Data API ID  in Settings -> Account -> APIs . The Data API ID is the same as the App ID. The Data API Key is available in the same screen in the API Keys -> Data section.
    • Old UI -> You can access the Data API ID and Data API Key in Settings -> App Settings -> APIs -> Data API Settings.

Step 1: Create a data model on DataChannel
