Delete users with Cloud Data Ingestion
User delete syncs are supported for all available Cloud Data Ingestion data sources. Follow the normal setup steps for the data warehouse you want to connect to, including creating a role that can access the delete table.
Source data configuration
Source tables for user deletes should include one or more user identifier types and an
UPDATED_AT timestamp. Payload columns are not supported for user delete data.
UPDATED_AT- The time this row was updated in or added to the table. We will only sync rows that have been added or updated since the last sync.
- User identifier columns. Your table may contain one or more user identifier columns. Each row should only contain one identifier (either
external_id, the combination of
braze_id. A source table may columns for one, two, or all three identifier types.
EXTERNAL_ID- This identifies the user you want to update. This should match the
external_idvalue used in Braze.
ALIAS_LABEL- These two columns create a user alias object.
alias_nameshould be a unique identifier, and
alias_labelspecifies the type of alias. Users may have multiple aliases with different labels but only one
BRAZE_ID- The Braze user identifier. This is generated by the Braze SDK and new users cannot be created using a Braze ID through Cloud Data Ingestion. To create new users, specify an external user ID or user alias.
- DO NOT include a
PAYLOADcolumn - to prevent accidental, permanent, deletes of users, a sync will fail if a payload column is provided in the source table. Any other columns are allowed but will be ignored by Braze.

How it works
With Braze Cloud Data Ingestion, you set up an integration between your data warehouse instance and Braze workspace to sync data on a recurring basis. This sync runs on a schedule you set, and each integration can have a different schedule. Syncs can run as frequently as every 15 minutes or as infrequently as once per month. For customers who need syncs to occur more frequently than 15 minutes, speak with your customer success manager, or consider using REST API calls for real-time data ingestion.
When a sync runs, Braze will directly connect to your data warehouse instance, retrieve all new data from the specified table, and delete the corresponding user profiles on your Braze dashboard.
Deleting user profiles cannot be undone. It will permanently remove users which may cause discrepancies in your data. Refer to delete a user profile for more information.
