About event feeds

Event feeds are used to manage and inspect incoming data. This article shows how to manage event feeds.

How it works

Event feeds are groups of events that match specific conditions based on their attributes. Feeds can be sent to connectors or a data storage solution such as EventDB or EventStore. The default event feed is named All Events and includes all incoming events. The default feed cannot be edited or deleted. However, additional feeds can be created to identify subsets of events based on their attributes.

To create an event feed:

  1. Go to EventStream > Live Events.
  2. Click + Add Event Feed.
    The Create Event Feed dialog appears.
  3. Set the Title and Notes.
  4. (Optional) Add Labels.
  5. Enable the feed for EventStore or EventDB.
    This setting requires your account to be enabled for DataAccess.
  6. Set the conditions for the feed.
    Enable EventStore Slider
  7. Click Save.
  8. Save and publish your account.
