Where can you sync your Heroku Postgres data in Mixpanel?

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.

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.

Group Properties

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

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.
