Please be sure of your agent type and version and pick the right documentation accordingly.

This is the documentation of the forest-express-sequelize and forest-express-mongoose Node.js agents that will soon reach end-of-support.

forest-express-sequelize v9 and forest-express-mongoose v9 are replaced by @forestadmin/agent v1.

Please check your agent type and version and read on or switch to the right documentation.


The Mixpanel integration allows you to fetch Mixpanel’s events and display them at a record level into Forest.

To benefit from Mixpanel integration, you need to add the package mixpanel-data-export before going further.

Then, add the following code to your app.js file. In our example we will map the customers.email with the data coming from Mixpanel. You may replace by your own relevant collection(s).

By default, Mixpanel is sending the following fields: id, event, date, city, region, country, timezone, os, osVersion, browser, browserVersion. If you want to add other fields from Mixpanel, you have to add them in customProperties:

const { objectMapping, connections } = require('../models');

module.exports = function (app) {
    configDir: path.join(__dirname, '../forest'),
    envSecret: process.env.FOREST_ENV_SECRET,
    authSecret: process.env.FOREST_AUTH_SECRET,
    integrations: {
      mixpanel: {
        apiKey: process.env.MIXPANEL_API_KEY,
        apiSecret: process.env.MIXPANEL_SECRET_KEY,
        mapping: ['customers.email'],
        customProperties: ['Campaign Source', 'plan', 'tutorial complete'],
        mixpanel: require('mixpanel-data-export')

  console.log(chalk.cyan('Your admin panel is available here: https://app.forestadmin.com/projects'));

You will then be able to see the Mixpanel events on a record, a Customer in our example.

You'll need to install the Mixpanel Data Export package to run the Mixpanel integration
