- Getting Your API Keys
- The expected target latency for data to be available in Plazma is between 5 to 10 minutes.
- TD users are required to use the Write-only API key to create an SFMC Streaming connection.
- Be aware of the number of callbacks that can be created for your SFMC account because this limits the number of sources that can be created on TD to ingest events.
- Be aware of the email send limits for their SFMC account. See Salesforce Article.
- You must create databases and tables in Plazma before creating sources to ingest data in those tables. Full support for automatic database and table creation is expected in the next implementation.
- Expect a few seconds delay before the newly created source starts streaming data.
- TD Toolbelt commands are not supported for Streaming connectors.
- The event size commit to the SFMC streaming connection can't exceed 1MB.
- The SFMC streaming connection data ingestion endpoint per task limit is ~400 requests per second.
- Maximum of 2 tasks per account.
