Live event detection

Live event detection enables the tracker to submit event data to the Marketing Automation Engine before the end of a session. This allows the Marketing Automation Engine to progress a contact through a plan without having to wait until the interaction is available in xConnect.

Live event data is submitted by the <submitLiveAutomationEvent> pipeline, which uses the Marketing Automation Operations API.

Mark an event as live

Any goal, outcome, or event definition item marked IsLiveEvent is submitted to the Marketing Automation Engine as soon as it is triggered. In the following example, the Demo Request event is a live event:
