Using the Events API


Introduces examples of events you can send to the Sitecore Search Events API.

You can track many different types of events using the Sitecore Search Events API. Sitecore Search provides event actions and names that can be combined to create a variety of events.

Sitecore Search supports the following categories of events:

  • Funnel events - Visitor actions that you want to track but which do not directly involve a Sitecore Search component. Funnel events include actions such as viewing a page, adding a review, removing a bookmark, logging in, and so on.

  • Widget events - Visitor actions on Sitecore Search widgets. These events include widget view and widget click events.

  • Request events - Visitor actions that trigger the search API.


All event objects must include a context object and the user's UUID or user_id.
