Synchronization and Replication Limitations

Skyvia supports replication with Incremental Updates for all the HelpDesk objects but the objects with names starting from Report, except the Reports_FailedEmails object. The latter one supports replication with incremental updates, but it doesn’t have the UpdatedDate field. Thus, replication with incremental updates detects only the new records, but not updates to existing records.

Skyvia supports synchronization for the following HelpDesk objects: Agents, CannedResponses, Licenses, Mailboxes, Rules, Subscriptions, Tags, Teams, Templates, Tickets, Views, Webhooks.

DML Operations Support

Skyvia supports the following DML operations for HelpDesk objects:

Operations Objects
INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE Agents, CannedResponses, Mailboxes, Rules, Tags, Teams, Templates, Tickets, Views, Webhooks
INSERT, DELETE BlockedEmails, EmailDomains, ReplyAddresses, TrustedEmails
INSERT, UPDATE Licenses, Subscriptions

Object Peculiarities


When loading data to the Templates object, values for the Content_Text field must include the {{message.text}} parameter, and values for the Content_Html field must include {{{message.html}}}.

For example, the value for the Content_Text field can be the following:

This is test template with the following text: {{message.text}}

The value for the Content_Html field can be the following:

<body><div>This is test template with the following text: {{{message.html}}}</div></body>


When importing data to the Tickets table, you must map either the Message_Text or Message_RichTextObj field in addition to the required Requester_Email field.


When reading data from the objects with name starting with Reports*, you can use the following fields to specify reports:

Fields Function
Step Aggregation step. Can take the following values: Hour, Day, Month, Year. The default value is Day.
From and To These fields specify the period, for which the report is queried. These parameters are not required. You can specify both, one, or none as described here.

These fields don’t return any data, when querying. They are used only to configure reports. You can specify values for them either in the WHERE clause of a query or in filters. You must use the equals operator for these fields.

Stored Procedures

Skyvia represents part of the supported HelpDesk features as stored procedures. You can call a stored procedure, for example, as a text of the command in the ExecuteCommand action in a Target component of a Data Flow or in Query.


The following command sends email with instructions on setting up email forwarding.

call SendForwardingInstructions(:LicenseId, :Email)


Use the following command to cancel a subscription.

call CancelSubscription(:SubscriptionId)


To terminate the subscription, use the command:

call TerminateSubscription(:SubscriptionId)


The following command merges the tickets.

call MergeTickets(:TicketId, :ChildTicketId)


To unmerge the tickets, use the following command.

call UnmergeTickets(:TicketId, :ChildTicketId)


The following command verifies the email domain.

call VerifyEmailDomain(:EmailDomainId)

You can use a call to the stored procedure, for example as a text of the command in the ExecuteCommand action in a Target component of a Data Flow or in Query.

Supported Actions

Skyvia supports all the common actions, available for most of the connectors, for HelpDesk.
