Connecting Outbrain

Outbrain Info
This integration was created by Fishtown Analytics for Singer, an open-source, composable ETL platform. Check out & contribute to the repo on GitHub.

Outbrain is currently in Open Beta. The info in this article is subject to change.

Connecting Stitch to Outbrain is a three-step process:

  1. Add Outbrain as a Stitch data source
  2. Define the Historical Sync
  3. Define the Replication Frequency

Adding Outbrain as a Stitch Data Source

  1. On the Stitch Dashboard page, click the Add an Integration button.
  2. Click the Outbrain icon.
  3. Enter a name for the integration. This is the name that will display on the for the integration; it’ll also be used to create the schema in your data warehouse.

    For example, the name “Stitch Outbrain” would create a schema called >stitch_outbrain in the data warehouse. This schema is where all the tables for this integration will be stored.
  4. In the Account ID field, enter your Outbrain Account (or Marketer) ID.

    You can find this by looking at the URL when you’re logged into your Outbrain account. The Account ID looks something like this: 0f4b02153ee75f3c9dc4fc128ab041962 and is located between marketers and campaigns, if you’re looking at the Overview dashboard:[account-id-will-be-here]/campaigns/overview
  5. In the Username field, enter your Outbrain username.
  6. In the Password field, enter your Outbrain password.

Defining the Historical Sync

The Sync Historical Data setting will define the starting date for your Outbrain integration. This means that data equal to or newer than this date will be replicated to your data warehouse.

Change this setting if you want to sync data beyond Outbrain’s default setting of 1 year. For a detailed look at historical syncs, check out the Syncing Historical SaaS Data article.

Defining the Replication Frequency

The Replication Frequency controls how often Stitch will attempt to replicate data from your Outbrain integration. By default the frequency is set to 30 minutes, but you can change it to better suit your needs.

Note that the more often Outbrain is set to replicate, the higher your row count will be. Even if all the tables in your Outbrain integration use Incremental Replication, replicating data frequently will increase your usage.

Stitch & Replicating Outbrain Data
Before setting the Replication Frequency, we recommend checking out the structure & Replication Methods for this integration’s tables. Tables that contain nested structures and/or use Full Table Replication will lead to a higher number of replicated rows.

To help prevent overages, we recommend setting the Replication Frequency to something less frequent - like 6 hours instead of 30 minutes.

For more tips on reducing your row count, check out the Reducing Your Row Count article.

After setting the Replication Frequency, click Save Integration to wrap things up.
