Hightouch lets you pull data stored in PlanetScale and push it to downstream destinations. Most of the setup occurs in the Hightouch UI, but you need access to PlanetScale for information like your hostname, database, and credentials.

You may need to allowlist Hightouch's IP addresses to let our systems connect to your warehouse. Reference our networking docs to determine which IP addresses you need to allowlist.
