Iron.io quick info
Iron.io accepts cloud-mode data from all Segment source types. It does not offer device-mode connections.
When you enable Iron.io in Segment, we’ll start sending data to an IronMQ instance with data for your account. Currently, Iron.io supports all of the Segment methods, and will send data from any one of our libraries.
When sending data to Iron.io, we’ll auto-fill a queue called “segment”. You can use Iron.io as a message queue buffer in front of your webhook server or internal data processing cluster. For example, if you want to analyze your data as part of an ETL process, Iron.io can act as an intermediary buffer.
For user-property destinations, an identify call is sent to the destination for each user being added and removed. The property name is the snake_cased version of the audience name, with a true/false value to indicate membership. For example, when a user first completes an order in the last 30 days, Personas sends an Identify call with the property
order_completed_last_30days: true. When the user no longer satisfies this condition (for example, it’s been more than 30 days since their last order), Personas sets that value to
When you first create an audience, Personas sends an Identify call for every user in that audience. Later audience syncs only send updates for users whose membership has changed since the last sync.
Supported Sources and Connection Modes
Before you start, make sure Iron.io supports the source type and connection mode you’ve chosen to implement. You can learn more about connection modes here.
Segment offers an optional Device-based Connection Mode for Mobile data going to Iron.io, so that you can use Iron.io features that collect data directly from the mobile device. To do this, you must package the Segment-Iron.io mobile SDK with the Segment mobile library.
Segment lets you change these destination settings from the Segment app without having to touch any code.
