Destination event inspector

Live event inspector is a great way to visualize in real-time all your outgoing events to a specific destination.

It is the easiest way to help you to debug what is sent to destinations, you can check all properties and filter on specific events or properties.

Intelligent sampling

During your test phase, you'll see 100% of your outgoing hits in the event inspector, thanks to the intelligent sampling mechanism.

When you'll start to send more real data with millions of events, you'll see only a portion of outgoing hits, based on these rules :

  • 6 requests per minute for each event type

  • a bonus of 30 requests per hour for each event type

You can visualize data up to 48 hours

IP addresses are automatically obfuscated (the last octet is replaced by 0)

Debug Mode

A Debug Mode is available ! Simply add the property test_code with any value (string format) in your events.

This property will bypass the intelligent sampling mechanism. It's a simple way to be sure your test hits will be available in the Live Event Inspector. You will be allowed to send 100 events/minute for each workspace.

On Sources > Live Event Inspector, the data retention duration of events with the property "test_code" is 1 day

Here's an example of an event with this property

cact('trigger','page_view', {
  page_type: 'product_list',
  page_name: 'Best sellers',
  test_code: 'my_value',
  user: {
    id: '12356',
    consent_categories: [1,3]

In case you cannot modify your events code's you can use our Data Cleansing option to add it in your events. Make sure your setup is based on a single key for reconciliation.

Here's an example of setup done with our Data Cleansing tool:

Note: this method works only for your Destination event inspector, not on the Sources Live event inspector as long as the Data Cleansing modifies the value after collection.
