Send data from PostHog to Avo Inspector
If you are already sending your data to PostHog you can stream it to Avo Inspector without adding any code to your codebase.
PostHog has an official plugin maintained by PostHog that sends data directly to Avo Inspector. If you are using PostHog you can set it up within a few minutes.
The Plugin is a side effect of Avo Inspector analyzing your events and keeping your PostHog events stream unchanged.
After connecting the PostHog plugin to a source the event schemas of all events seen in PostHog will automatically be sent to Avo Inspector and you'll be able to monitor the quality of your tracking implementation without any changes in your code!
Inspector only receives your event schema, no actual data will be sent to Avo.
Remember that production data takes up to 2 hours to appear in Inspector dashboard, while development data is available without any delay
An Avo Source is the first thing you need to connect your PostHog data to Avo Inspector.
Sources in the Avo sidebar or

In the source details, go to "Inspector Setup" and there you’ll see options to integrate Inspector. Pick PostHog to see the integration guide.
