Detailed technical description of connections used to build data pipelines in RudderStack.
RudderStack lets you set up connections between your preferred event data sources and destinations. With this feature, you can build efficient data pipelines across your entire customer data stack.
With RudderStack, you can bring together all your event data across your web, mobile, server-side, and cloud apps and route this data reliably to your data warehouse and other third-party platforms of your choice.
A source refers to a platform or an application (web, mobile, server-side, or a third-party cloud app) from where RudderStack tracks and collects your event data.
We recommend creating a source for every unique source of data. You can also create multiple sources for each website or application from which you want to track the data.
To view all the configured sources in your RudderStack dashboard, click on Sources in the left navigation bar, as shown:
Add Destination: You can connect your source to a new destination by clicking on this button.
If you have already configured a destination in RudderStack, you should click on the Connect Destination button.
Live Events: Once your source and destination are successfully configured and a connection is set up and enabled, RudderStack starts tracking and collecting events from your source. These events can be viewed in real-time using this option.
Deleting a Source
You can delete a source by clicking on the Delete Source button.
Before you delete a source, make sure there are no active destinations enabled for it.
A destination is a tool or application where you want to send the data via RudderStack.
