User Agent (user_agent)

  • Environment variable: TAP_ZENDESK_CHAT_USER_AGENT

The user agent to send with requests.

Chat Search Interval Days (chat_search_interval_days)


The chat search interval days, default 14 days.

Chats Full Sync Days (chats_full_sync_days)


The amount of days between full syncs of chats. This allows you to configure the tap to re-sync all chats every so many number of days. This exists due to the options (or lack thereof) the Zendesk Chat API provides when syncing chats. Each chat has an "end timestamp" that indicates when the chat was "ended." However, even after the chat has ended, it may be modified. In order to not sync all of the chats during every run of the tap, the tap filters data based on the "end timestamp." But this means if the chat is modified after the tap has already synced it, any modifications will be missed by the tap. By re-syncing every N days, you are able to update any chats that may have changed since they were synced by the tap. Defaults to None, meaning don't full sync regularly.

Access Token (access_token)

  • Environment variable: TAP_ZENDESK_CHAT_ACCESS_TOKEN

The Zendesk Chat access token.

Agents Page Limit (agents_page_limit)

  • Environment variable: TAP_ZENDESK_CHAT_AGENTS_PAGE_LIMIT

The page limit of API requests, default 100.

Start Date (start_date)

  • Environment variable: TAP_ZENDESK_CHAT_START_DATE

Determines how much historical data will be extracted. Please be aware that the larger the time period and amount of data, the longer the initial extraction can be expected to take.
