Where can you sync your Looker data in Zendesk?

Ticket Comment

Ticket comments represent the conversation between requesters, collaborators, and agents. Comments can be public or private.

Macros

A macro consists of one or more actions that modify the values of a ticket's fields. Macros are applied to tickets manually by agents.

Users

Zendesk Support has three types of users: end users (your customers), agents, and administrators. End Users, Agents, Administrators.

Ticket

Tickets are the means through which your end users (customers) communicate with agents in Zendesk Support. Tickets can originate from a number of channels, including email, Help Center, chat, phone call, Twitter, Facebook, or the API. All tickets have a core set of properties.

Organization Subscriptions

Agents in an organization can subscribe to be notified whenever someone in their organization submits a ticket. The agents will be notified as long as they're allowed to see all tickets or the organization's tickets.

Custom Object API

You can use the Custom Objects API to create, update, and delete objects that you define yourself. You can also use it to define and manage relationships with other objects, including native Zendesk objects like tickets and users.

Michael T
Business Operations

I used to develop reverse ETL systems with Python and Airflow for destinations like Eloqua, Mixpanel, Braze, Intercom, and Salesforce. Every destination requires different data types, formats, rate limits, and API requests. Census saves me from maintaining my custom code, so I can spend more time to optimize the system itself.

Frances Fang
Sr Data Engineer

Census takes what the analytics team does out of static dashboards and into tools that the rest of the company uses, allowing us to actually deliver on the promise of being “data driven”.
