Send event and emails data from PostHog into Sendgrid whenever a user is identified in PostHog.


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 Sendgrid access, obviously.


  1. In PostHog, click the "Data pipeline" tab in the left sidebar.
  2. Search for 'Sendgrid' and select the destination, press Install.
  3. Add your Sendgrid API key at the configuration step.
  4. Enable the destination and watch your contacts list get populated in Sendgrid!


Sendgrid API Key
Type: string
Required: True
The key needs PUT access
Custom fields
Type: string
Required: False
Comma separated list of additional properties that will be sent to Sendgrid as custom fields. Optionally, you can define an alternative key for the field in Sendgrid. E.g. myProp1=my_prop1,myProp2=my_prop2
