Considerations

Keep these things in mind when sending events to Lantern.

  • You must enable this integration in each Amplitude project you want to use it in.
  • You must have a paid Lantern plan.
  • Amplitude matches the user_id to the Lantern analytics_id to associate events.
  • Relevant limits for Lantern events are:
    • Maximum event size of data: 64 bytes
    • Maximum size of event data: 4250K bytes (4.25MB)
  • To forward event properties, you need to specify the event properties in the UI during the setup stage.
