After your customer activates a destination account, the Activation API can be used to manage segment data distributions.

[Remove Segments from a Distribution Manager](🔗)Remove segments from a distribution manager Used to remove a segment or segments from the distribution for a particular integration connection by sending the integration connection ID and the segment ID.

## Distributing segment data

When your customer selects the destination platform to distribute a particular segment to, use the Add Segments to a Distribution Manager call to trigger a distribution to that destination. LiveRamp then matches the anonymized segment to the platform partner devices and delivers the output to the configured destination.

LiveRamp also automatically triggers this process when new data is imported into your account (which occurs every 5 days to keep the data active and up-to-date within a destination). Additionally (in this same cadence), LiveRamp also provides new segment data as a result of updates to our identity graph.

Once a segment has been configured for distribution, the customer will receive an email confirming delivery and it will show up on the destination platform within 3 days of the initial distribution.
