# Source Deleted Trigger

The source deleted trigger is fired when a source is deleted successfully.

Some uses cases for this trigger are:

  • Provide evidence to show auditors that connector logic and sources are not manipulated outside of proper change control processes.
  • Alert admins in the event that a source was wrongfully deleted.

# Getting Started
