Tealium EventStream is a data collection and API hub that sits at the center of your data. EventStream handles the entire data supply chain from setup and installation to identifying, validating, and enhancing incoming user data. EventStream takes real-time action with event feeds and connectors.
This integration forwards data from Tealium to the MoEngage's data APIs.
Step 1: Set up a Source
Tealium requires that you first set up a valid data source for your connector to draw from.
- From the left sidebar in Tealium under Server-Side, navigate to Sources > Data Sources > + Add Data Source.
- Locate HTTP API platform within the available categories, and name your HTTP API app, this is a required field.
- From the Event Specifications options, choose the event specs you would like to include. Event specifications help you identify the event names and required attributes to track in your installation. These specifications will be applied to incoming events. Take some time to think about what data is most valuable to you and which specifications seem most appropriate for your use case. Custom event specifications are also available.
- The next dialogue advances to the Get Code step. The base code and event tracking code provided here serve as your installation guide. Download the provided PDF if you wish to share these instructions with your team. Select Save & Continue once finished.
- You will now be able to view your saved source as well as add or remove event specs.
Step 2: Create an event connector
A connector is an integration between Tealium and any another vendor used to transmit data. These connectors contain actions that represent their partner’s supported APIs.
- From the left sidebar in Tealium under Server-Side, navigate to EventStream > Event Connectors.
- Select the + Add Connector button to look through the connector marketplace. In the new dialogue box that appears, search for MoEngage connector.
- Once clicked, you can view the connection summary and a list of the required information, supported actions, and configuration instructions. Configuration comprises four steps: source, configuration, action, and summary.
In the dialogue that opens, select the data source you just built, and under Event Feed, select All Events or a specific event spec, if needed. Click Continue.
Next, select Add Connector. You must name your connector and provide your MoEngage Data API and Data API key
If you have created a connector before, you may optionally use an existing one from the available connector list and modify it to fit your needs with the pencil icon or delete it with the trash icon.
Next, name your connector action and select an action type that will send data according to the mapping you configure. Here, you will map MoEngage attributes to Tealium attribute names. Depending on which action type you choose, there will be a varied selection of fields required by Tealium.
The unique identifier which is set and passed on from MoEngage SDK.
The name of the user you are updating.
First name of the user.
Last name of the user.
Email of the user.
Age of the user.
Male or female.
Phone number of the user.
Location of the user, latitude and longitude (- lat,lng).
Acquisition source of the user.
User created time.
User last seen time.
Number of transactions by the user.
Lifetime value of the user.
The current platform on which the user is interacting with the system, such as Android, Windows, iOS, etc.
Your connector now displays in the list of connectors on your Tealium home page.
Step 3: Test your Tealium connector
After your connector is up and running, you should test it to ensure it’s working properly. The most simple way to test this is to use the Tealium Trace Tool.
- To start a new trace, select Trace on the left sidebar under Server-Side options.
- Examine the real-time log.
- Check for the action you want to validate by clicking the Actions Triggered entry to expand.
- Look for the action you want to validate and view the log status.

Only Connector action - Add/Modify User Information is supported by Tealium.
