EventStream API Hub
Introduction to EventStream
This article is an introduction to Tealium EventStream, a data collection and API hub that sits at the center of your data supply chain.
Tealium EventStream tutorial
This guide introduces you to Tealium EventStream and helps you understand the application interface and the fundamental concepts of event data management. Step through this guide to learn how to quickly set up a working server-side profile that includes a data source, event specifications, and a vendor connector. You can then see it in action using live data from your site or application.
A data source is any system that sends data to Tealium EventStream. These systems include websites, native mobile apps, or any custom application that can report event data. Data sources are platform-specific and provide the necessary code and instructions to complete an installation.
Data sources: Add a data source
This step uses the HTTP API data source as an example, but you can use any platform for which you have access to the code.
Data Sources: Install and Test
Installing and testing the HTTP API is as simple as entering a URL into a browser. If you chose a different platform for your data source, go ahead and add the necessary code according to the installation instructions.
Use Live Events to manage and inspect incoming events in real-time. You’ll use this to verify that the test events from your data source are received.
Event specifications represent your data layer in EventStream and provide a way to organize and validate the quality of incoming data.
Event Specifications: Add a Spec
Add event specifications directly from the event details view in Live Events. Live Events detects events that match a marketplace specification and provide a preview of the spec to make it easy to add without leaving the screen.
Event Specifications: Data Quality
After you define event specifications, Live Events displays the quality of your incoming data.
Event feeds are a collection of events that match specific conditions based on their attributes.
Add an Event Feed
This step shows how to create an event feed to capture search events that contain zero results.
A connector is an integration between Tealium and another vendor that is used to transmit data. A connector contains actions that represent the vendor’s supported APIs.
Connectors: Add a connector
This step shows how to add a connector, configure an action, and use data mappings.
Trace is the testing and validation tool for EventStream. Use Trace to validate that your configuration is working properly and that connector actions are triggered.
Trace: Test with Trace
In this step, use Trace to validate that your configuration is working as expected.
