Mixpanel is a user analytics service that tracks user interactions with web and mobile applications and provides tools for targeted communication with them.
Hevo lets you load your Mixpanel events to your destinations.
You must have the Mixpanel API Secret to provide Hevo with access to your Mixpanel account. Read more about how to find your Mixpanel API Secret here.

7. Pipeline Created
Your Pipeline will be created when you enter this page and you will have an option to see Sample Data and Map Schema.
While Hevo tries to load your schemas, you can select CONTINUE IN BACKGROUND if it is taking too much time. Click on CREATE SCHEMA MAPPING to map Source and Destination Schemas, check out Introduction to Schema Mapper to learn about Schema Mapper or you can select DO IT LATER to directly head to Pipeline page. You can map schemas later on Schema Mapper page in your pipeline.
Please note that your data will not start replicating in Destination tables until you map source and Destination schemas.
How it works
Hevo uses Mixpanel's raw Data Export API to download and ingest raw events from Mixpanel. Please note that the API provides data on a daily granularity and hence, Hevo fetches data at 3 AM (UTC) every day for the previous day.
