Where can you sync your dbt in Amplitude?

Batch Event Upload API

The Batch Event Upload API lets you upload large amounts of event data. The event JSON format follows our HTTP API format, and has the same requirements (each event must have an event type, and so on).

API Docs

Device ID

Use the Identify API to set the User ID for a particular Device ID or update user properties of a particular user without sending an event.

API Docs Description

Group Identify API

Use the Group Identify API to set or update properties of particular groups. The Amplitude Accounts add-on makes analytical functionality available at the group level. A group is an object that a set of users might belong to, like a company of customers, team of users, or a playlist with listeners. Groups can help you understand how accounts interact with your product, instead of how individual users interact.

API Docs

User Profile API

The User Profile API serves Amplitude user profiles, which include user properties, computed user properties, a list of cohort IDs of cohorts that the user is in, and recommendations.

Data Activation Use Cases

Syncing from dbt

dbt (data build tool) is a data modeling and data management tool that enables analytics engineers to transform data in their warehouses by simply writing select statements. dbt handles turning these select statements into tables and views. dbt approach to data modeling is the leading paradigm for ELT (Extract, Load, Transform). It makes it easy to transform data that has been delivered to the data warehouse via an ETL tool like Fivetran, Stitch, or Airbyte. Census has a native integration with dbt that expands the reach of your trustworthy models by putting them into the places where business teams can take action.

Now you can use the data in dbt for more than just analytics and BI. With Amazon dbt you can operationalize your data across your entire customer data stack.
