Track and manage Subscriptions - External export effortlessly.


Required plan

This feature or setting is available to all customers on any Recurly subscription plan.


The "Subscriptions - External" export function allows you to identify and gather detailed information on external subscriptions stored on third-party platforms like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. It aims to provide Recurly users with comprehensive data regarding the statuses and details of external subscriptions tied to different accounts.


To help you focus on the relevant data, several filters are available for use with the "Subscriptions - External" export, which include:

Subscription Status Filter

  • All: Displays all external subscriptions, irrespective of their status or state.

Date Range Filters

  • Activated: Filters external subscriptions activated within a selected time range, using data from the "activated_at" column in the export.
  • Modified: Highlights the subscriptions altered within a chosen timeframe based on the "modified_at" column. Note that only the modified entries will appear, excluding the original data.
  • Created: Shows subscriptions created within a selected period, referencing the "created_at" column, including those with a future activation date.
