Segment is the easiest way to get your customer data into Variance. Hooking up Segment is easy. To start, head to the integrations page in Variance. Then you'll Add a Segment Connection. You can describe it in any way you want, but we suggest using the name of the Segment source you're going to be piping from. We recommend you use one connection per source, as you can then filter by source, but it's up to you.
On the first time you connect a Segment source we ask for a little bit of additional information about you how link users with their companies in your Segment data. We support whatever way you currently manage things:
If you have any questions at all, please reach out and we're happy to hop on a Zoom and help you get set up.
Once you've added a source you'll see two pieces of data:
Now head over to Segment, choose the Source you are piping from and then click Add Destination.
From the Destinations catalog you want to choose the Webhooks destination.
That will bring you to the configuration screen. Here you'll enter the two pieces of data we gave you.
First, under Connection Settings you'll see Webhooks (max 5). Click that and enter the Webhook URL we gave you and hit Save.
Now under Other Settings add your Shared Secret and hit Save.
Alright. That's it. Just two bits of data and we're all set. There's one more really important step: turn on the integration by flipping the switch. Make sure to do this or we won't receive any data.
Alright, that's it. If you want to check the status, just create some events in the source and they should flow through Segment to Variance. If you have any problems let us know.
