Question

Will the analytics integrations (e.g. Mixpanel) backfill our full history of events?

We are looking to take advantage of RevenueCat’s ability to publish a more extensive set of analytics purchase events by way of one of the analytics integrations that are available.

Ideally we would like Revenue Cat to publish the full history of events upon enabling the integration but I can’t see any references that indicates this would happen in the docs.

So the question is will it automatically backfill the events for prior purchases? If not, what is the recommended way to achieve this?

RevenueCat doesn’t send historical events to any integrations, but will send events from the moment you set up the integration. Some integrations don’t properly process old events or may not even accept them after a certain amount of time has passed. If you want to get historical data in Mixpanel, there are two main ways:

  1. If you store RevenueCat’s webhooks, you can send those yourself to Mixpanel.
  2. If you get ETL exports, you can parse it out into events (like initial purchase, renewal, etc.) and send that data to Mixpanel.
