Create User Records in your Website's Database

Updated 6 months ago by Odette Jacquet

When a customer signs in with AE Connect, their details are stored as a unique profile in the dashboard. However, before signing up for AE, you may have already been creating a database of users with a service like WordPress.

Good news is you can still keep user records in two locations. Here's how...

If code isn't your thing, this is a good time to reach out to your developer.

Transferring the data

If you would like to create user records in your own database, you can transfer data (in the form of objects returned) from AE using a request with AE JS.

This is an action that will be triggered when a certain event occurs, such as a user login or a user sign-up. The events you implement will return a user object, which is the data about the user. The data will be automatically transferred to your secondary user records.
