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).
Step 1: Add an Event Connector
Step 2: Configure an Action
"All Events" is available by default. Custom Streams appear after adding them via Live Events.
Step 3: Save/Publish your profile
The action will trigger as data flows into the streams 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 Stream and title it 'Test Event A'.
Set up a Tealium iQ filter condition: "customer_email" is assigned. This condition is met when the Data Source is found on the page.
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.
