Sendinblue-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for Sendinblue:

  • In the Data Integration product, Sendinblue connections are supported only for packages, which use a new data integration runtime.

    Make sure you select the Use new runtime checkbox on the tab bar if you want to use Sendinblue in your package. You need to select this checkbox each time you create a new data integration package.

  • Skyvia supports import operations for such Sendinblue objects:
    • INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE: ChildrenAccounts, Contacts, ContactsAttributes, Contacts_Folders, Contacts_Lists, Email_Campaigns, Senders, SMS_Campaigns, Templates, WebhooksMarketing, WebhooksTransactional.
    • INSERT, DELETE: BlockedDomains.
    • INSERT: SenderDomains_ChildrenAccounts.
    • DELETE: BlockedContacts.
  • Skyvia supports Replication with Incremental Updates selected for such Sendinblue objects as Contacts, Contacts_Lists, Email_Campaigns, SMS_Campaigns, Template, WebhooksMarketing, WebhooksTransactional.
  • Skyvia supports Synchronization for such Sendinblue objects as Email_Campaigns, SMS_Campaigns, Template, WebhooksMarketing, WebhooksTransactional.
  • The Contacts object requires specifying either the Email or Attributes field (for example SMS attribute) to perform the INSERT operation.
  • The BlockedDomains object has only one field Domain and always returns only one record, listing all the blocked domains as a JSON array:

    ["example.com", "example2.com"]

    You can perform INSERT and DELETE operations against this object. For this, you need to provide domains to add or delete as is, like ‘example3.com’. After inserting a record with such a value, the BlockedDomains object will still return only one record, but the list of domains in it will include the new domain:

    ["example.com", "example2.com", "example3.com"]

    In the same way, if you execute the DELETE operation, the existing list will shrink and will look like:

    ["example.com", "example2.com"]

  • The BlockedContacts object does not have an Id field. Its Email field is used as the primary key.
  • The Contacts_Attributes object does not have an Id field. The Name and Category fields are used as the primary key.
  • The following Sendinblue objects are read-only: TransactionalEmailActivity_AggregatedPerDay, SMSActivity_AggregatedPerDay, SMSActivity_UnaggregatedEvents, and TransactionalEmailActivity_UnaggregatedEvents.
