SendGrid Webhook

Last updated on Oct 09, 2023

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

We have migrated our webhooks infrastructure for better scalability and throughput. As a result, the old Webhook URLs are deprecated and will stop working soon. Please migrate to the new webhook URL (provided in the Set up Webhook section of your Pipeline Overview page) to avoid disruption in your data loading operations.

For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, 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.
