Performance considerations

The connector is restricted by normal Zendesk requests limitation.

The Zendesk connector should not run into Zendesk API limitations under normal usage. Please create an issue if you see any rate limit issues that are not automatically retried successfully.

Getting started


  • Zendesk Chat Access Token

Connect using OAuth 2.0 option:

  1. Select OAuth2.0 in Authorization Method
  2. Click on authenticate your Zendesk Chat account
  3. Proceed the authentication using your credentials for your Zendesk account.

Connect using Access Token option:

We recommend creating a restricted, read-only key specifically for Airbyte access. This will allow you to control which resources Airbyte should be able to access.
