Where can you sync your dbt in Mixpanel?

Events

Each request ingests a batch of events into Mixpanel. Mixpanel accepts up to 2000 events and 2MB uncompressed per request. Events are part of the request body.

API Docs Description

Group Properties

Updates or adds properties to a group profile. The profile is created if it does not exist.

API Docs Description

Lookup Tables

Lookup Tables are mutable tables that describe non-user entities like accounts, product SKUs, or geographies. These tables can be used to enrich events at query-time. In star schema terms: events are like facts and Lookup Tables are like dimensions.

API Docs Description

User Profile

A Mixpanel User profile reflects the most recent information about a user. Mixpanel builds profiles by connecting information about a user to a distinct_id, which creates a location that collects current information about a user.

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.
