Sync data from Recurly to your warehouse destination via RudderStack.

Recurly is a subscription management platform that maximizes the subscriber lifetime value with expertise, technology, and insights for the global brands.

This document guides you in setting up Recurly as a source in RudderStack. Once configured, RudderStack automatically ingests your specified Recurly data, which can then be routed to your RudderStack-supported data warehouse destination.

All the Cloud Extract sources support sending data only to a data warehouse destination.

Getting started

To set up Recurly as a source in RudderStack, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your RudderStack dashboard.
  2. Go to Sources > New source > Cloud Extract and select Recurly from the list of sources.
  3. Assign a name to your source and click Continue.

Destination settings

The following settings specify how RudderStack sends the data ingested from Recurly to the connected warehouse destination:

  • Table prefix: RudderStack uses this prefix to create a table in your data warehouse and loads all your Recurly data into it.
  • Schedule Settings: RudderStack gives you three options to ingest the data from Recurly:
    • Basic: Runs the syncs at the specified time interval.
    • CRON: Runs the syncs based on the user-defined CRON expression.
    • Manual: You are required to run the syncs manually.
For more information on the schedule types, refer to the Common Settings guide.

Is it possible to have multiple Cloud Extract sources writing to the same schema?

Yes, it is.

RudderStack associates a table prefix for every Cloud Extract source writing to a warehouse schema. This way, multiple Cloud Extract sources can write to the same schema with different table prefixes.

How does RudderStack count the events for Cloud Extract sources?

RudderStack counts the number of records returned by the source APIs when queried during each sync. It considers each record as an event.
