Good to know: Event source
The Youbora Source is an event source. This means that it sends data as events, which are behaviors or occurrences tied to a user and a point in time. Data from these sources can be loaded into your Segment warehouses, and also sent to Segment streaming destinations. Learn more about cloud sources.
This source is supported in US data processing regions.
The Youbora source is only supported in workspaces configured to process data in the US region. Workspaces configured with data processing regions outside of the US cannot connect to this source. For more information, see Regional Segment.

Now that your Source is set up, you can connect it with destinations.
Log into your downstream tools and check to see that your events are populating and they contains all the properties you expect. If all your events and properties are not showing up, refer to the destination docs for troubleshooting.
If you experience any issues with how the events arrive in Segment, contact the YOUBORA team.
YOUBORA will only send in events that have a value for a
userId. You must send in the same value for
userId to YOUBORA as you are sending into Segment.
