Tracking Plans

Server-side enforcement of Tracking plans is now available in the UI. Now teams can link an existing tracking plan to a variety of data sources, and decide whether to allow, annotate or drop the data that does not conform to pre-defined schemas. With Tracking Plans, users can prevent or de-risk situations where missing or improperly configured event data can break their downstream destinations. Learn More


SSL Mode for Redshift

We offer two SSL mode options when setting up the Redshift source in RudderStack, disable and require. The disable option disables SSL mode and is used in cases where security is not an issue and people do not want any encryption overhead. The require option is used in cases where security is important and teams can deal with the resulting encryption overhead. This option makes sure that data is encrypted and sent to RudderStack.
