Send your event data from RudderStack to Autopilot.

Autopilot is a popular marketing automation platform that allows you to track and capture new leads, create detailed customer journeys, and boost customer retention.


Autopilot is now Ortto. Refer to this documentation only if:

  • You set up the Autopilot destination in RudderStack before the rebranding.
  • You are leveraging the Autopilot REST API to send the data.

If you’re sending data from RudderStack to Ortto, see the Ortto documentation.

Find the open source transformer code for this destination in the GitHub repository.

The identify call captures relevant details about the visiting user.

A sample identify event is shown:

You can use the track to record user actions along with any associated properties.

A sample track payload is as shown in the snippet below:

[[RudderClient sharedInstance] track:@"test_event"
