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

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

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

'[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.


This requires either PostHog Cloud, or a self-hosted PostHog instance running version 1.30.0 or later.

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.


To install this app, you will need your Engage secret key and public key to send data to PostHog. These are available on the 'Settings' page of your Engage dashboard, under the 'Account' > 'API' Keys section.

Once you have made a note of your keys, log in to your PostHog instance and follow the steps below.

  1. Visit the 'Apps' page in your instance of PostHog.
  2. Search for 'Engage' and select the app, press Install.
  3. Enter configuration by selecting the blue gear icon.
  4. Enter the API information as requested, select save.

Now, as soon as the app is enabled, PostHog will start sending your events to Engage in real-time.

Event Replicator

This app is currently unavailable while we develop a new export system . It will be back again soon! The Replicator app copies events from one PostHog instance to another, at the moment they are ingested. No changes are made to the events by this app if it runs in isolation. If this app is deployed in a chain then any changes made to the event data before the Replicator runs will also be copied to the new instance. Otherwise, no changes will be copied.
