HubSpot is a customer relationship management (CRM) software and inbound marketing platform that helps businesses to attract visitors, engage customers, and close leads.

This Hubspot dlt verified source and pipeline example loads data using “Hubspot API” to the destination of your choice.

Setup Guide

Grab credentials

Note: As of November 30, 2022, HubSpot API Keys are being deprecated and are no longer supported. Instead, we recommend to authenticate using a private app access token or OAuth access token.

Create a private app and get an authentication token before running the pipeline example. Follow these steps:

  1. In HubSpot, click the ⚙️ icon to access settings.

  2. Under "Account Setup" in the left sidebar, choose "Integrations" > "Private Apps".

  3. Select “Create a private app”.

  4. In the “Basic Info” tab, provide a name and description.

  5. In the “Scopes” tab, grant:

    • Read scopes for CMS, CRM, and Settings.
    • Permissions for:
      business-intelligence, actions, crm.export, e-commerce, oauth, tickets
  6. Click "Create app" > "Continue Creating".

  7. Click "Show token" and store it for ".dlt/secrets.toml".

Note: The Hubspot UI, which is described here, might change. The full guide is available at this link.

Initialize the verified source

To get started with your data pipeline, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the following command:

    dlt init hubspot duckdb

    This command will initialize the pipeline example with Hubspot as the source and duckdb as the destination.

  2. If you'd like to use a different destination, simply replace duckdb with the name of your preferred destination.

  3. After running this command, a new directory will be created with the necessary files and configuration settings to get started.

For more information, read the guide on how to add a verified source.

Add credentials

  1. Inside the .dlt folder, you'll find a file called secrets.toml, which is where you can securely store your access tokens and other sensitive information. It's important to handle this file with care and keep it safe. Here's what the file looks like:

    # put your secret values and credentials here
    # do not share this file and do not push it to github
    api_key = "api_key" # please set me up!
  2. Replace the access_token value with the previously copied one to ensure secure access to your Hubspot resources.

  3. Enter credentials for your chosen destination as per the docs.

For more information, read the General Usage: Credentials.

Run the pipeline

  1. Before running the pipeline, ensure that you have installed all the necessary dependencies by running the command:
    pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. You're now ready to run the pipeline! To get started, run the following command:
  3. Once the pipeline has finished running, you can verify that everything loaded correctly by using the following command:
    dlt pipeline <pipeline_name> show
    For example, the pipeline_name for the above pipeline example is hubspot_pipeline, you may also use any custom name instead.

For more information, read the guide on how to run a pipeline.

Sources and resources

dlt works on the principle of sources and resources.

Default endpoints

You can write your own pipelines to load data to a destination using this verified source. However, it is important to note the complete list of the default endpoints given in hubspot/

Source hubspot

This function returns a list of resources to load companies, contacts, deals, tickets, products, and web analytics events data into the destination.

def hubspot(
api_key: str = dlt.secrets.value,
include_history: bool = False,
) -> Sequence[DltResource]:

api_key: The key used to authenticate with the HubSpot API. Configured in "secrets.toml".

include_history: This parameter, when set to "True", loads the history of property changes for the specified entities.

Resource companies

This resource function fetches data from the "companies" endpoint and loads it to the destination, replacing any existing data.

@dlt.resource(name="companies", write_disposition="replace")
def companies(
api_key: str = api_key,
include_history: bool = include_history,
props: Sequence[str] = DEFAULT_COMPANY_PROPS,
include_custom_props: bool = True,
) -> Iterator[TDataItems]:
"""Hubspot companies resource"""
yield from crm_objects(

This resource function takes the same arguments, api_key and include_history as the "husbpot" source described above, but also supports two additional. include_custom_props - indicates if all the properties of CRM objects, except Hubspot driven (prefixed with hs_), are to be extracted. props - the list of properties to extract in addition to the custom properties. Similar to this, resource functions "contacts", "deals", "tickets", "products", and "quotes" retrieve data from the Hubspot API.

Resource hubspot_events_for_objects

This function loads web analytics events for specific objects from Hubspot API into the destination.

def hubspot_events_for_objects(
object_type: THubspotObjectType,
object_ids: List[str],
api_key: str = dlt.secrets.value,
start_date: pendulum.DateTime = STARTDATE,
) -> DltResource:

object_type: One of the Hubspot object types as defined in hubspot/

object_ids: List of object ids to track events.

api_key: The key used to authenticate with the HubSpot API. Configured in "secrets.toml".

start_date: The initial date time from which start getting events, default to "01-01-2000", configured in hubspot/


Create your own pipeline

If you wish to create your own pipelines, you can leverage source and resource methods from this verified source.

  1. Configure the pipeline by specifying the pipeline name, destination, and dataset as follows:

    pipeline = dlt.pipeline(
    pipeline_name="hubspot", # Use a custom name if desired
    destination="duckdb", # Choose the appropriate destination (e.g., duckdb, redshift, post)
    dataset_name="hubspot_data" # Use a custom name if desired

    To read more about pipeline configuration, please refer to our documentation.

  2. To load all the data from contacts, companies, deals, products, tickets, and quotes into the destination.

    load_data = hubspot()
    load_info =
  3. To load data from contacts and companies, with time history using "with_resources" method.

    load_data = hubspot(include_history=True).with_resources("companies","contacts")
    load_info =
    1. include_history loads property change history and entities as separate tables. By default set as False.
  4. By default, all the custom properties of a CRM object are extracted. If you want only particular fields, set the flag include_custom_props=False and add a list of properties with the props arg.

    load_data = hubspot()
    load_data.contacts.bind(props=["date_of_birth", "degree"], include_custom_props=False)
    load_info ="contacts"))
  5. If you want to read all the custom properties of CRM objects and some additional (e.g. Hubspot driven) properties.

    load_data = hubspot()
    load_data.contacts.bind(props=["hs_content_membership_email", "hs_content_membership_email_confirmed"])
    load_info ="contacts"))
  1. To load the web analytics events of a given object type.

    resource = hubspot_events_for_objects("company", ["7086461639", "7086464459"])
    # Here, object type : company, and object ids : 7086461639 and 7086464459
    load_info =[resource])
    1. This function uses "object_type" and "object_id" as arguments.

    2. This function loads data incrementally and tracks the occurred_at.last_value parameter from the previous pipeline run. Refer to our official documentation for more information on incremental loading.
