To configure Heap.io as a destination, you need the Heap App ID. To get the App ID, login to your Heap account and navigate to App** - Settings - **Projects, and copy the development or production App ID.

  • Once you’ve entered the Heap App ID, click Next. Heap.io should now be configured as a destination on your RudderStack dashboard.
The Heap destination currently supports only track and identify calls.


RudderStack’s identify method captures the relevant details about the visiting user.

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

rudderanalytics.identify("user123", {
  name: "Name LastName",
  email: "example@domain.com",


With the track API, RudderStack makes a call to Heap.io to track your user actions as well as their associated properties.

A sample track call is as shown:

rudderanalytics.track("Order Completed", {
  order_id: "12345",
  category: "clothing",
  revenue: 99.9,
  shipping: 13.99,
  tax: 10.99,
  promotion_id: "PROMO_NOW",
