Event Visibility currently only supports Simon Signal ingestion

We are working to add more event ingestion pathways to this tool such as Database triggers, events sent to our Event Ingestion API, and more!


Rejected events

Rejected events will come through highlighted in light red. The reason for the rejection is detailed in the error column:

In this example, the complete_transaction event was rejected. This was due to the required property `productId` not found in the schema

Current Limitations

The product only supports the first 100 events from the time the connection is established. The connection will auto-disconnect upon the 100th event on the page.

Currently, the only drop down that is supported is the Event Name drop down. This drop down contains all of our accepted event types.
