SendGrid Webhook

NOTE: The webhook service has been separated from the Pipeline execution environment to improve performance. As a result, the old webhook URL is deprecated.
Switch to the new webhook URL (provided in the Setup Webhook section of your Pipeline Overview page) before December 31, 2020 to avoid disruption in your data loading operations.

Note: For Pipelines created with this Source, Hevo provides you a fully-managed BigQuery data warehouse Destination if you do not already have one set up. You are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery .

Hevo can bring email activity data from your SendGrid account into your Destination. Hevo connects to SendGrid through Webhooks.
