How to prevent a data source from creating visits

Dear community,

we are currently connection a new data source via HTTP API - Advanced.

The connection works fine and the data is received as expected. The issue I'm facing now is, that every event received from the connector creates a new visit, which means all the visit metrics (e.g. Total direct visits) will count up for each call. 

Is there any chance to mark the events as "offline" or similar, to ignore them in the visit metrics?

Thanks in advance
