Real-time events represent direct user actions in your app or website, and can be used to trigger campaigns in real time. For more information on events see our real-time events user guide.
The hit event API method is used to fire real-time events, similar to the
eventHit methods found in the web and mobile SDKs. This allows users to trigger campaigns/workflows based on events that happen outside of mobile or web apps, which is useful for triggering actions based on events that occur on backend systems.
