Partner-Built Connectors and Destinationslink
The Partner-Built program is a way for vendors to build connectors and destinations for their platform on top of Fivetran’s infrastructure utilizing an SDK. These connectors and destinations become available alongside Fivetran-built connectors and destinations.
NOTE: Partner-built connectors and destinations are distinguished by the Partner-Built badge. For any questions related to partner-built connectors and destinations, and its documentation, refer to the relevant partner's support team.

I want to build a connector or destinationlink
You can get started by visiting the Partner SDK GitHub repo to learn more about the process, get access to tools, examples, and development guide. Feel free to schedule time with us to discuss the process in person and go over our partnership agreement. Also, please fill in our intake form to let us know what your plans are.
How is support handled?link
We work with partners who built the connector or destination on support cases. If Fivetran gets the initial ticket and determines an issue is partner-originating, we coordinate with you on a hand-off email for partner-related issues.
Which Fivetran plans support Partner-Built connectors?link
We expect most Partner-Built connectors to be databases, which would land in the Standard plan and above.
Which Fivetran plans support Partner-Built destinations?link
Partner-Built destinations are available for all Fivetran plans.
What’s the difference between Partner-Built and Lite connectors?link
Lite connectors are API-based connectors that Fivetran builds by request. They are generally for SaaS APIs that produce a non-dynamic schema.
By contrast, your engineering team builds Partner-Built connectors on top of Fivetran using our SDK. We expect Partner-Built connectors to be database-centric and/or accessing non-standard APIs.
What is the SLA for a Partner-Built connector or destination?link
Refer to the SLA of the partner who built the connector. You can usually find it in their product documentation.
What features does the SDK support?link
The SDK supports all Fivetran features natively as if the connector or destination were created by Fivetran.
The following table summarizes the key differences between Standard, Lite, and Partner-Built connectors.
