Configuration of goals and signals happens through the config event type. In this guide, you will learn how to design your goals and signals, and how to send those through to your Valued project.

Valued provides two ways to configure goals and signals: GitHub Actions or one of the SDKs. GitHub Actions is the recommended way.

Github Actions

In the following example, we are point of sale SaaS company and we are creating two goals for our customers:

  • Customer making their first widget sale
  • Customer receiving 6 payments

And, a signal to check if sales drop have dropped by 10% or more in the last 28 days in comparison to the previous.

Single configuration file

You can create a single configuration file called valued.yaml or .valued.yaml either at the top level, or inside a directory called config or .config.

Valued’s configuration file supports .json, .toml, .yml and .yaml formats.



- name: Created a sale
  action_key: sale.created
- name: 6 payments receieved
  action_key: payment.received
  threshold: 6
- name: Monthly sales
  action_key: sale.created
  outcome: negative
  threshold: -10
  period: 28d

Multiple files

You can also create individual configuration files for goals and signals.

Create a valued, .valued, config/valued, or .config/valued directory, and add one goals.toml and one signals.toml file.



["Created a sale"]
action-key = "sale.created"

["6 payments received"]
action-key = "payment.received"
threshold = 6


["Monthly sales"]
action-key = "sale.created"
outcome = "negative"
threshold = -10
period = "28d"

Set up the GitHub Action

  1. Obtain a token for the Valued API. In the Valued Dashboard, click Integrations and copy “API Key”. Store it in the VALUED_API_KEY secret.

  2. Add the following step to your GitHub Action workflow:

- uses: valued-app/config-sync@main
    token: ${{ secrets.VALUED_API_KEY }}

A full workflow only pushing the configuration might look like this:

name: valued-config-sync

    branches: [main]

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - name: Upload Valued configuration
        uses: valued-app/config-sync@main
          token: ${{ secrets.VALUED_TOKEN }}
