Apache Airflow Provider for Hightouch

Provides an Airflow Operator and Hook for Hightouch. This allows the user to initiate a run for a sync from Airflow.


Pre-requisites: An environment running apache-airflow >= 1.10, including >= 2.

pip install airflow-provider-hightouch


In the Airflow Connections UI, create a new connection for Hightouch.

  • Conn ID: hightouch_default
  • Conn Type: HTTP
  • Host: https://api.hightouch.com
  • Password: enter the API key for your workspace. You can generate an API key from your Workspace Settings

The Operator uses the hightouch_default connection id by default, but if needed, you can create additional Airflow Connections and reference them in the operator



Starts a Hightouch Sync Run. Requires the sync_id or the sync_slug for the sync you wish to run.

Returns the sync_run_id of the sync it triggers.

The run is synchronous by default, and the task will be marked complete once the sync is successfully completed.

However, you can request a asynchronous request instead by passing synchronous=False to the operator.

If the API key is not authorized or if the request is invalid the task will fail. If a run is already in progress, a new run will be triggered following the completion of the existing run.


Monitors a Hightouch Sync Run. Requires the sync_id and the sync_run_id of the sync you wish to monitor. To obtain the sync_run_id of a sync triggered in Airflow, we recommend using XComs to pass the return value of HightouchTriggerSyncOperator.


Creating a run is as simple as importing the operator and providing it with a sync_id. An example dag is available as well.

from airflow_provider_hightouch.operators.hightouch import HightouchTriggerSyncOperator
with DAG(....) as dag:
my_task = HightouchTriggerSyncOperator(task_id="run_my_sync", sync_id="123")
my_other_task = HightouchTriggerSyncOperator(task_id="run_my_sync", sync_slug="my-sync-slug")

Special thanks to Fivetran for their provider and Marcos Marx's Airbyte contribution in the core Airflow repo for doing this before we had to so we could generously learn from their hard work.
