This page guides you through the process of setting up the Freshdesk source connector.


To set up the Freshdesk source connector, you'll need the Freshdesk domain URL and the API key.

Set up the Freshdesk connector in Airbyte

  1. Log into your Airbyte Cloud account or navigate to the Airbyte Open Source dashboard.
  2. Click Sources and then click + New source.
  3. On the Set up the source page, select Freshdesk from the Source type dropdown.
  4. Enter the name for the Freshdesk connector.
  5. For Domain, enter your Freshdesk domain URL.
  6. For API Key, enter your Freshdesk API key.
  7. For Start Date, enter the date in YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ssZ format. The data added on and after this date will be replicated.
  8. For Requests per minute, enter the number of requests per minute that this source allowed to use. The Freshdesk rate limit is 50 requests per minute per app per account.
  9. Click Set up source.

Supported sync modes

Supported Streams

Several output streams are available from this source:

Performance considerations

The Freshdesk connector should not run into Freshdesk API limitations under normal usage. Create an issue if you encounter any rate limit issues that are not automatically retried successfully.

If you don't use the start date Freshdesk will retrieve only the last 30 days. More information here.
