Create sources automatically!

If the target source doesn’t exist, it will be created automatically by inferring the schema from the ingested events.
However, it’s recommended to be explicit and create the source beforehand to ensure the schema is well optimized for your use case.

Supported Formats

The Ingest API supports the following formats:

  • CSV
  • Parquet

For example, ingesting NDJSON is as simple as:

curl --request POST \
  --url{source} \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer <key>' \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data '[
  { "id": 123, "name": "Sarah"},
  { "id": 456, "name": "Alex"}

Rate Limits

The Ingest API is rate limited to 1000 events/sec per source. If you need to ingest more events, please contact us.
