Event connectors give you the ability to leverage Event Feeds for taking action on events such as product page views, add to cart actions, or newsletter signups, etc. These actions occur in a cloud-based delivery service instead of client-side (ie. in your mobile app or website).
In this article:
Step 1: Add an Event Connector
Step 2: Configure an Action
Step 3: Save/Publish your profile
The action will trigger as data flows into the feed selected.
You have set up your desired actions and now it's time to test them. With the help of the Trace tool you can monitor which streams are activated by the Tealium Collect tag, which actions are triggered, and what data is collected in the process. Let's walk through a simple exercise to trigger a GET action in Webhook and have it triggered by a sample stream.
Step1: Add a new feed and title it 'Test Event A'.
Add the condition: "customer_email" is assigned.
Step 2: Add the Webhook Connector and create a GET Action. Select 'Test Event A' as the trigger source.
Step 3: Save/publish your profile.
Step 4: Start a new Trace in AudienceStream and navigate to your site.
Trace will start displaying all the configurations and processes that are being evaluated behind the scenes.
Step 5: In the reporting screen, check if your target Stream 'Test Event A' was picked up by the Collect Tag.
Step 6: Check to see if the GET Action was triggered successfully.
If a connector you use has strict rules about which systems it accepts requests from, you might need to whitelist the IP addresses of the UDH. The IP addresses that make connector requests can be found in the IP Addresses for Universal Data Hub.
