Engage

|Edit this page

Connect PostHog to Engage, a marketing automation platform, and sends data to Engage for use in segmentation, targeting and automation.

Specifically, it only exports your Custom and $identify events to Engage.

Extra event properties and metadata are also processed and sent to Engage.

posthog.identify(
'[user unique id]', // distinct_id, required
{ userProperty: 'value1' }, // $set, optional
{ anotherUserProperty: 'value2' } // $set_once, optional
);

The example above, using the PostHog browser JS SDK, appends extra properties to the identify event. These extra properties are also sent to Engage.

Requirements

Using this requires either PostHog Cloud with the data pipeline add-on, or a self-hosted PostHog instance running version 1.30.0 or later.

Self-hosting and not running 1.30.0? Find out how to update your self-hosted PostHog deployment.

You'll also need access to a Engage account, obviously.
