Upgrading Grouparoo from v0.7 to v0.8

Last Updated: 2022-01-11

Grouparoo v0.8 brings a UI update focused on the Models you build. It also brings several syncing improvements, and a few breaking changes. Learn how to upgrade from v0.7 to v0.8!

As always, begin by updating the packages within your Grouparoo project by following the generic upgrade guide to bump your dependencies to v0.8.x.

An example of a Grouparoo deployment being upgraded can be found here.

Model-Centric UI

One major change in Grouparoo v0.8 is our new Model-Centric UI. Now, you're able to see all of the Sources, Properties, Schedules, and Destinations associated with a Model on a single dashboard. You can view a sample Record and quickly access the configuration pages for each of these objects.

Model-Centric UI Updates

Airtable Plugin

As we continue to add to our list of integrations, we are pleased to announce a community-contributed Grouparoo Airtable plugin in v0.8.

Salesforce Plugin Export Types

Our Salesforce Plugin now supports three different Export types as a Destination. You can send your Grouparoo Records to Salesforce Accounts, Contacts, or Objects making it easier to get your data exactly where you want it.

Salesforce Destination Types

Null and Not Null Filters for Properties and Schedules

Our SQL Plugins get two new Filters on Properties and Schedules -- exists with any value (not null) and does not exist (is null). Now you can populate a Property based on whether or not another column in your Source is null.

Migration Notes and Breaking changes

Google Sheets Properties

Google Sheets now needs the aggregation method explicitly declared. While it's always only supported exact Properties, the following will need to be added to your Property config files if you use a Google Sheets source with Code Config or Config UI:

  "options": {
    "aggregationMethod": "exact",
    "column": "..."

Property and Schedule Filters

Property and Schedule Filter operations have been renamed to match the operations used for Group Rules. If you have Filters set on Properties or Schedules and you have configured your Grouparoo setup using Code Config or Config UI, you will need to manually update the op in the filters array in your config files as follows:

  • "equals" --> "eq"
  • "not equals" --> "ne"
  • "less than" --> "lt"
  • "less than or equal to" --> "lte"
  • "greater than" --> "gt"
  • "greater than or equal to" --> "gte"

For example:

  "filters": [{
    "key": "state",
    "op": "equals",
    "match": "successful"


  "filters": [{
    "key": "state",
    "op": "eq",
    "match": "successful"

Group Rules

Group config objects have changed shape as well. The operation within the rules array is now unnested to match the layout of Property and Schedule filter objects. If you used Config UI or Code Config to configure your Groups, you will need to modify the config files as follows:

A Rule that looked like:

  "rules": [{
    "key": "status",
    "operation": { "op": "eq" },
    "match": "active"

Now becomes:

  "rules": [{
    "key": "status",
    "op": "eq",
    "match": "active"

Removal of Group Type

As of Grouparoo v0.8, Manual Groups are no longer supported. All groups are now configured based upon sets of Group Rules, rather than by manually adding Records. As such, there is no longer any group "type". If you've used Code Config or Config UI, you will need to remove the following line from your Group config files, even for calculated groups:

  "type": "calculated"
